PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES: The 2017 season started late as I was not cleared until late spring from a concussion. I received my new Kona Hei Hei Race Supreme and started my usual training regimen. The Kona HHRS is fast and so much fun to ride that I was finding myself riding my MTB more than training on the road. I did several MTB races and was looking forward to the cross season. To throw a huge monkey wrench in my schedule we decided it was time to move. We ended up buying a small farm, ending the season prematurely as priorities shifted quickly making the training suffer more than I was supposed to. The plan is to be back racing next year on my Kona HHRS!
