Epic Stuff


So today my teammate Blair and I headed out to do a pretty cool ride out past Sugarloaf onto some cool dirt roads.  About 1 hour into the ride Blair's rear derailleur exploded.  With that being no reason to stop a ride, we cut his chain, and he single speeded the next 80 miles in his 39x19.  So we were talking about it and decided that if I was going to start a blog that today would be the day.  That way I'll at least have one interesting post.  If this blog makes it past 5 posts then I'll consider a success on my behalf.
Our ride was pretty good despite having to jam up the hills and coast on all the downhills.  Riding with Blair is always good cuz he knows all the best roads out there.  I don't really want to talk about how my legs felt good/bad or anything, so I'll pass on that.

So I guess I'll finish up this inaugural blog post with a little bit about myself...My name is Nathan Wilson.  I am 17 and live in Arlington, VA, I like racing bikes...uh yeah its cool.  Next year is my last year racing in the juniors, which is sad, because juniors is pretty tight, but oh well.  I'm a cat. 2 and thats all I'll share for now.  Hopefully this blog doesn't suck, cuz I hate blogs that suck.
