Visas and Europe

So it has been awfully quiet about me lately, the main reason being the I spent most of the summer back home in Europe. I traveled a little, followed up with old friends and rode my bike. I also hit some races here but mainly for fun. I am lacking some motivation without a team here to go out and race each weekend, so I must confess that I bailed on a couple... Nevertheless, my form is still decent (hopefully).

Now, the reason for spending the summer in Europe was that we finally decided on straighten out the visa situation. I applied for an athlete visa and in order to do so you need to be out of the US. So here I am and the whole visa issue finally went through too. I'll pick it up tomorrow afternoon at the US Embassy here in Luxembourg and will be flying back to Dallas on Friday. From there we will continue to Las Vegas for Interbike early next week. If I can I would love to race Cotton Patch this weekend but I'll have to wait and see how bad of a jet-lag I'll have.

Anyways, I can't wait to be back and I'll hopefully manage to write here a little more regularly in the next couple of months.
