In My Own Words
I spend my off-season doing: Cross Country Skiing; enjoying the world of things to do off the bike; brewing and drinking beer
My goals and expectations for this season are: Bleed through the eyes; make others bleed through theirs.
I started racing because: It seemed like a good idea at the time.
My cycling mentors and/or influences are: Fabu, Voigt (of course).
I consider my finest moment on the bike to be: 2010 ToAD and Grafton, Greenbush, until I flatted, and flatted then crashed…
The one thing I’ve done on a bike that I will never do again: Not have fun.
When I’m not on my bike, I like to: Work on bikes. Makes me feel like I’m still doing something towards my performance on the bike without training.
Something you probably don’t know about me is: I’m actually hilarious.
