PERSONAL NOTES & QUOTES: MTB stage racing and CX are my current passions. The challenge and adventure of week long bike races really motivate me to do my best. The frenzied intensity of CX has me addicted. My family, wife Melissa, daughter Mikayli, and son Owen are a central part of my life. Owen is into mountain biking 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.
