Independent Fabrication

It appears I'll be riding for a new grassroots sponsor this year - Independent Fabrication! Thanks to Thom Parsons, a real solid dude and rider, my scene was dubbed acceptable for representing their grassroots squad. CrankRacing has been a great place to get myself into the scene, meet other riders, share experiences, but i was feeling ready for the next step (if it can be called that being a pure amatuer). I have no place being cocky or whatnot, as i'm a tiny guppy in the ocean of cycling, but for those of us who thrive on physical personal accomplishment, getting suited-up for a great local bike company like IFab is awesome stuff. This will be my 4th year of racing mtbikes and my 3rd year training to do so. Each year has brought significant strides as the legs have "matured", really can't wait to see what this year brings. Will i top-out? or will i make another next step and be a (expert class) podium threat in most races vs just a couple? Lots of talented guys in these here parts (which is great!), i bet they've been eating their wheaties all winter long too... and that reminds me, better have my 4th cookie of the day, only ate about 8 last night. Jenn made 'em before i got home last night, oatmeal/cherry/chocolate chip, good stuff. Perfect fuel for tonight's night ride!

Sweet deal dude! Team Green is the shit. I've raced a few times with Steve Shwarz (spelling?). Nice dude. Think he's from down in MD. Can't wait to see what you ride.
Congrats again on a killer grass roots team.
