Profile Picture

The Lion, also known as Ryan, is struggling to get the Dragon Bone out of his system, but it is not easy. His Uncle implanted a powder called Dragon Bone in his system. Dragon Bone enhances your sight, smell, taste and hearing to a point where you’re superhuman. It also makes you live longer and heal rapidly if you get hurt. But to get Dragon Bone out of your system you have to sweat, and Ryan is trying to sweat, but when too much rain prevents him from mountain biking he ends up going out to California with three of his friends to visit his cousin, Peter, and to learn road racing.
