Road Racing and very long mtb rides
HOW I GOT INTO CYCLING
My dad got me into cycling when I was a kid. I had to hang onto his wheel or he would leave me in the middle of nowhere in the road cycling utopia that is west Tennessee. I spent most of my youth playing soccer. After high school I started racing on the road and the trail. The road took priority but nowadays the long epics on the mountain bike are what I enjoy most along with the weekly world championships here in Salt Lake.
WHERE I’M FROM
Born in Kansas City, grew up Collierville Tennessee and a brief stint in Oklahoma City before moving to the magical land of Zion.
It’s a tie, my 08′ Bianchi T-Cube and my Ti Salsa El Mariachi 29….Actually those are the only 2 bikes I own at the moment…
