Location: I live in Apartment G, which stands for Gangster
I've been a xXx member for the last year, supporting team tactics and otherwise awkwardly flailing about in the P1/2 category. My goals for the year are to start mixing it up in a very serious way (ideally reaching Cat 1 in the next 1.5 years) and joining the pantheon of xXx greats in the annals of history, That, and to prove that fat Chicagoans can climb.
I'm a Northwest Indiana native (and former farmer!) who attended Indiana University through 2013, which is where I was first exposed to our wonderfully self-deprecating sport. I had the great honor of racing in the Little 500 the last three years of my college career, thus solidifying my bike fanaticism and making me an all-around awesome dude.
-Addendum: My other, OTHER goal is to make Aaron Baker (and whoever else is emotionally moved by mildly-absurdist writing) cry a single perfect tear after reading my race reports, which will be much more comprehensive through 2015.
