With the first week of January now over, it seemed a good time to update my blog with my new sponsors and my change of direction for 2011. I've always believed that change is good, however resistant I sometimes I appear to anything that challenges my normal routine. But like my favorite poem by Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken", it's sometimes good to go exploring down a different road and see what lies ahead.
So for the year ahead, I'm happy to announce that I'll be training mainly in the U.S. with Siri Lindley and the Team Sirius elite squad. I'm also happy to have the continued sponsor support of First Endurance, Cobb Saddles, Compex and Oakley, and to welcome my new sponsors Trek, KSwiss, Zipp, TYR and Fuel Belt.
It will be an exciting year ahead to see what awaits down the road not yet taken, because without taking risks you never know where that road might lead. And better to risk and take challenges than to regret and always wonder "what if."
Here's to a great 2011!
