Off-Day ActivityAnything with my family!

I am first and foremost a dad and husband...but a cool race dad that loves to be an example for my 12 year old son and foster his passion for cycling as well. Most folks that get to know me quickly find out that I have a "relentless positive attitude" regardless of the situation. I have found this goes a long way professionally and in endurance racing...especially when you hit a low point and begin to doubt yourself 80 miles in!

I love riding and racing and really enjoy the challenge of endurance mountain bike races which have become my primary focus for the last two years. I train as much as possible while still focusing on my son to ensure he continues learning, developing and most importantly having fun!

Near term, my goal is to complete 4 NUE races in a season while mixing in some endurance gravel races to mix things up a bit.
