When did you join pedal? I had been on the club team for about two years since moving to Colorado. This year I joined the race team to see if racing is for me.
How long have you been riding and racing? I bought my first road bike in 2005 when I was living in Redlands, California. However, it wasn’t until I moved to Colorado in 2014, and met Jon Dury, that I really started to get serious about riding. Each year since I have been increasing the mileage and fitness.
What have you done to add value for our sponsors recently? How did you do it? I try to be a courteous rider making sure folks are able to get to where they are going. Giving out extra tubes when needed is cheap and easy and goes a long way for people trying to finish their ride.
What sponsor can’t you live without, and what product or service of theirs do you like/need so much? I cannot get enough of Honey Stinger products. They have been the only product I’ve used that doesn’t mess with my stomach and gives me the energy to finish rides (particularly their PB & J Snack Bar).
Favorite motivational quote/saying? “It never gets easier, you just go faster” has been my mantra this year.
Best race or ride experience or highlight? This year it was going to be completing the Triple Bypass on my birthday…however, we all know how that turned out. Instead, with the help and motivation of a few friends, we rode from Evergreen to the top of Mt. Evans. It was great to celebrate my birthday on top of a 14er doing something I could not have done 5 years ago.
What are your goals or what are you looking forward to in 2017? After all the training I did for the Triple, and before the end of the season, I would still like to ride the Triple route self-supported. I think that would be a good milestone for me.
