Hey everyone one just wanted to say hello to everyone here at the site. I just got into mountainbiking 3 months ago. I raced BMX 30 years ago with pretty good results,then I started smoking,partying and womenizing. Then marriage, a son and work ,work, work.I Quit smoking 9 months ago cold turkey after 27 years and started putting on some weight and I just could not go there so I went back to my roots and started biking again and I am having a blast. I raced at Jungle Habitat and am going to Blue mountain this weekend. Wow I am out of shape!. I ride 40-60 miles a week mostly on the street to get my conditioning up. I lost all the weight gained, but its not easy when your 44 years old. I am here to stay. I am going to continue traing all winter then do all the races next year (Campmor Series)One more thing, I must say that everyone I have met so far in this sport have been very welcoming. See you on the trails.
