The summer of biking

Nathan did 8 major bike races this summer, and a number of smaller criterium races and hill climb races to go from a CAT 5 rider up to a CAT 3 rider!  Lots of hard work.  He finished 2nd or 3rd on most races.  His race he wanted to win was the Tour de Park City.  What was really cool was Rich and Rachelle and their fam were visiting that weekend.  Kathy and Alan came too of course.  So the finish was exciting...
Waiting, watching, and ringing the bells

Here he comes!!

Yep, that's a first place
