What got you into this bike-riding thing? I was fat computer kid, so my parents funded the first bike. After that, I spent summers riding and racing DH at Big Bear and Northstar. I’d really say I started to like all-things-bike in college. Collegiate racing with the Cal Poly Wheelmen was rad. I tried road and XC, then decided road bike aren’t as fun.

What are you passionate about personally? Planning and doing awesome things.

What do you really enjoy? Doing awesome things, typically adventures like trekking the Himalayas, climbing the Grand Teton, or week(s) long road trips with bikes and beer. Or even just a day in the woods to shred some knobbies and make the “braapp” noise a bunch.

What can’t you stop talking about? Really amazing vegetarian sandwiches.

Any cycling or life achievements you are particularly proud of? After trying the Tahoe Sierra 100 MTB race and getting the smackdown, I set a goal (took two years) to do well at a NUE 100 mile MTB race and got 13th/99 in open at High Cascades last year. Checkkk!

How do you want to be remembered? That guy that was really excited ‘bout ridin’ bikes.

What got you into this bike-riding thing? I always loved riding bikes since I was a kid. I rode a bike to school every day from the 2nd grade through high school. It wasn’t until my second year of college that I gave up competitive running, and started racing for the UC Davis cycling team. I was immediately hooked, and have been racing ever since.

What are you passionate about personally? Building things. I’m a mechanical engineer by trade. If it’s building something custom for my bike, even better.

What can’t you stop talking about? How 29ers and dropper posts are pretty much the best thing ever. I know it’s not 2010 anymore, but it still applies.

Any cycling or life achievements you are particularly proud of? I was part of the 2009 UC Davis road squad that took first overall at the collegiate national championships.

What would be impossible for you to give up? Cycling of course…seriously though.

How do you want to be remembered? As someone who brings more to the table than takes away.

What got you into this bike-riding thing? I have always had a love for endurance sports, exploring the mountains, and a competitive drive to become stronger and faster.

When you nail a section of trail that you’ve never made before- such a great feeling!

It is an amazing privilege to be there for the families through that incredibly hard time. I also love coaching kids and have been a cross country and mountain bike coach.

What would be impossible for you to give up? Riding my bike- a no brainer! Oh and power-naps.

How do you want to be remembered? As someone who made big goals, persevered through the thick and thin, and came out as a stronger, more compassionate person.
