2020 RACING AGE: 58
RESIDENCE: Providence, RI
WHERE I GO MONDAY MORNING: Flagstar Bank, Inc. @ 311 Broadway in the heart of Providence, RI – I’ve been helping folks with home purchase financing and refinancing for over 27 years.
RACING DISCIPLINE(S) AND CATEGORY(S): ESC Enduro 50+ Open, EWS/EWS Qualifier 40+ Masters, DH 50+ Cat 1 (with Cats 2-3 combined) XC/Endurance
# OF YEARS RACING: Ran a few XC races from 1995-2000 – Bought a NORBA license in 2001 so 15 years – was seriously racing from 2001-2005 and the again from the last ESC Cup Enduro race of the 2013 racing season to present and beyond.
# OF BIKES OWNED: 5 in total: 2020 Kona Remote 160 Enduro E-Bike (don’t judge me!.. very fun!) 2019 Kona Wozo 27.5 Fat-Bike (silly-super fun to ride!) for training, and snow/fat bike rides and races. Next up: 2017 Trek Slash 9.8 29’r set up for Enduro racing (I also run a set of 27.5+ wheels/tires on the Slash for local fun and park).. Then there is my vintage 20” BMX and my “road bike”: a Steel Schwinn Classic Beach Cruiser with Nexus 7 speed internal hub and coaster brake; with full fenders (front and rear) and a big front mounted cargo basket! – It’ the best for spinning around town, pick up Chinese food, etc.. , And finally, since it has two wheels, and is truly a fast-blast to ride; I am including my “scooter” ( this was a 45th birthday present from my wife) ..a beautiful Black and Tan ’07 Ducati GT1000 Sport-Classic with dual Termignoni exhaust (along with a few other select performance upgrades) .. For zipping to/from the office and rushing to appointments around the state – it’s quicker and with a little creativity I can always find convenient free parking; even in downtown Boston.
FAVORITE BIKE: I could tell you; but that wouldn’t be fair to the others, now would it? (LOL – right now it’s tied between the ebike and the enduro)
FAVORITE TRAIL OR RIDE: My custom loops on the fun flowing trails of 8000 acre Big River Management Area, West Greenwich, RI
NON-CYCLING INTERESTS/HOBBIES: Telemark/Backcountry/Alpine-Touring Skiing with either or both of my two sons, and hitting weights in the gym.
PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES: I love (working on) hitting big lines on big trails. Racing is a way to connect with others that share this passion, and chilling with the folks I meet at the camp site – cooking, eating, drinking, laughing, these are the best of times. I love showing folks some of the best trails in New England (or just riding them with my dog, Rozzi); I am an RI-NEMBA ride leader for Big River Management Area (8000+ Acres) and Arcadia Management Area (approx. 18,000 acres). Come on down for a ride. Let me put together a loop for you; 10-15-20+ miles non-stop flowing single track!
