In My Own Words
I spend my off-season doing: Riding less intensively and better understand nutrition.
My goals and expectations for this season are: Place high in WCA Cat 3 overall, help out for ToAD and upgrade on the track.
I started racing because: Brent convinced me to give it a try. It was awesome!
My cycling mentors and/or influences are: Brent Emery, Jeff McKillip, Todd Shellenberger.
I consider my finest moment on the bike to be: Staying upright throughout most of the hairy Cat 4 races last season.
The one thing I’ve done on a bike that I will never do again: Not check my brakes before starting a slippery downhill in the rain.
When I’m not on my bike, I like to: Travel, Cook/Eat, Explore Museums
Something you probably don’t know about me is: I used to wood carve when I was a kid.
