FAVORITE BIKE:Trek MTB
FAVORITE TRAIL OR RIDE: 909 MTB Trail network near my house (for proximity). Road rides north from my house for the same reason. BC has some epic trails like North Shore, Sechelt, Langdale, and Squamish. Moab's Captain Ahab and Klondike Bluff area rocked! Michaux State Forest and Rothrock State Forest in Pennsylvania are slices of heaven.
NON-CYCLING INTERESTS/HOBBIES: Family Time, Snowboarding, XC Skiing, camping, music enthusiast.
PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES: I love racing in the woods on epic single loop 40-50 mile distances. Of nearly equal passion is the Cyclocross season with the short intense technical challenges. Road riding is great as a training vehicle for my racing and I very much enjoy exploring the many options in downstate New York. Having done the Transylvania Epic, BC Bike Stage race, and now the Breckenridge Epic, I'm going to continue eyeing multi-day stage races. My family; wife Melissa, daughter Mikayli, and son Owen are a huge part of my life. Owen is just getting into mountain biking now and riding with him is a blast. I am so fortunate to have the opportunities I've been given and set out to make every day worth while.
