“Living on the road my friend Was gonna keep you free and clean Now you wear your skin like iron Your breath's as hard as kerosene You weren't your mama's only boy But her favorite one it seems She began to cry when you said goodbye And sank into your dreams” -Townes Van Zandt
On the 6th of December I will set off on my next adventure, only this time I will be going for an extended stay. For the past three years I have been a roaming man, often stetting up my life wherever the racing/training has taken me. I have split the majority of my time over the last few years between Bend, Chico and Europe, but now I will be a full time European resident. I am very excited to be moving to Nice, France to race with Team Sky for the next three years, and I am also a little shocked at how quickly this has all come to fruition. Since Sky will not likely be racing in the USA in 2013 I will be spending the entire year in Europe, so now instead of coming home to visit family and friends they will have to come and visit me in my new home. I now have only a few days left in Santa Rosa, after which I will make a quick stop in Chico to say hello to some friends, and then off to Bend for my final farewell. On December 1st SunnySide Sports will be hosting a going away party from 6-8pm. Hope to see you all soon and if not come visit me in Nice!!!
