    Hi everyone, I'm racing in Belgium for a good level team in 2013. I've started a blog that'll be updated regularly with race reports and general stories from Europe! If anyone wants to know the ins and outs of trying to make it as a pro cyclist abroad, this is the place for you!!

    OK, I had to re-read your posts a few times due to this seems like you are nothing more then a bragger at first. But if that is or is not the case doesn't matter. A lot of feeling and translation gets lost on forums. So I've the the benefit of the doubt and just say I wish you the best of luck and I would like to hear a little more about you and how you got started and how you got to the point you are at. I think the back history helps me and maybe some other people not have the impression that you are just here to brag.

    Welcome to the forums btw...
