Where did you find your start?
I started doing triathlons in high school to crosstrain for running. But when I went to college I joined the cycling team and never looked back.
Biggest-littlest achievement – what did you win when you were younger that really got you hooked on racing? I won a number of collegiate races my first season resulting in being crowned the Men’s C Conference Champion.
Locally – Rouge-Roubaix LA, Nationally – Downer’s Grove Crit course
Bridges Tour from College Station, TX, Leakey/Vanderpool TX area, Pilot Mountain/Hanging Rock, NC
Favorite food to eat after a ride?
At home – frozen fruit & yogurt smoothie, Out & about – burritos, big ones
Favorite food to eat at 2am on a Saturday night?
Late night – Whataburger, Long day – greasy tacos
1986 Centurion Ironman Red/White w/7spd downtube shifters, bought in 1999.
My goals are to be counted on by my team to be there when it counts, and when given an opportunity, to finish the job.
What are you riding and why?
Specialized Venge – I wanted an aero bike to squeeze every scrap of speed I can. Specialized Allez – A training bike that could be raced at the ready, not feeling disadvantaged against my competition.
Favorite Specialized product?
My Specialized S-Works shoes. Along with the Specialized footbeds they are so stiff but couldn’t be more comfortable.
