Well...I'm down, but not out. Looks like I've got some severe mitral valve regurgitation that is going to require heart surgery to repair early next year. Based on what I have heard and understand, this defect is something that was just written in the stars for me and it has been progressing over time. My cardiologist says I've got a great outlook and may end up stronger than before, but I have to stay off the bike for now. I wanted to say thank you to the Sunday STR Fully crew for the great rides this year. Vince's Sunday adventure through Sunny Hills was a great ride to end the season on. Anna and I want to wish you all a great holiday season, get in some great rides for us, and we will see you next year at Fully as soon as I can get on the bike! -Bobby And to you, you evil CHSP Bane Ridge Wall....I will conquer you again!
