I found cycling as a kid to help with my attention and focus. It has always kept me balanced.
I have been racing as a professional cyclist since I was 18 years old. I won individual and team competitions for the National USA Criterium Series. I’ve also won 3 National Championships in mountain bike and criterium.
My specialties include equipment, climbing technique, and critiquing tasty ride food. You see, the longer you have been racing, the more tips and tricks you pick up. I have learned sometimes it’s better to spend 30 minutes on food prep or performing equipment check, vs an extra 30 minutes on the bike.
I retired from professional cycling in June 2019. I have been coaching remotely and coaching beginner-advanced clinics since 2012. I now coach all levels from beginners on platform pedals, all the way to current National team racers.
