The Lazar focus I once had surrounding bike racing has come to an end. No long or complicated story behind why; it comes down to a mix of desire and priorities have shifted to other things.
Tour of Hermann Gravel Race and Dogfish CX in Hermann are still a go, no changes there. What will change is how much and the type of racing I do. I'm working to simplify my cycling hobby by getting rid of the majority of my equipment (down to one bike) and no longer tracking stats or watts or blogging about races; just riding to stay fit with a race here and there.
See you at the next race, event, or ride :)
