In My Own Words

I spend my off-season doing: Taking time off the bike, Strength training in the gym and playing soccer.
My goals and expectations for this season are: 1st Place for WORS CAT 2 Series & 1st Place for USA Cycling Crit CAT 4 Series. I expect to do well at ToAD & I would also like to experience racing in the cyclocross series.
I started racing because: It’s fun, a great workout and it’s cheaper than racing motorcycles.
My cycling mentors and/or influences are: Anyone and everyone around me who has a positive attitude and loves to bike.
I consider my finest moment on the bike to be: Too many to mention!
The one thing I’ve done on a bike that I will never do again: Be slow… Except when I want to be.
When I’m not on my bike, I like to: Spend time with my wife and son.
Something you probably don’t know about me is: I’m actually slow on a bike!!!
