A fresh new year

So Christmas has come and gone and we are into the new year. I don't know what 2010 will bring but it always feels like the slate is getting wiped clean and everyone can start from zero again. Rankings reset, points for certain competitions back to nil, teammates changed, sponsors changed and the previous year is nearly erased from the memory. This is all good, unless you had a great 2009 in which case you are probably pretty annoyed the trend doesn't continue! So now it’s time for planning, training, ramping up, and dreaming of the coming year. This doesn't mean, however, that the fun is gone, just changed or maybe reduced a little.
