Full USAC Results

Why you started riding a bike: I quit playing football as junior in college and got into running. I had a roommate who was doing a triathlon and it seemed bad ass at the time, so I bought a bike and did one. That was in 2009 and I haven’t looked back since.

Why you started racing a bike: Triathlon just seemed like a big fitness competition. I enjoyed the training, but I was only really racing myself and my times. I wanted to race other people. I entered a Cat 5 race at the end of the triathlon season and never missed running or swimming.

What do you love most about racing: The speed and the mental challenge of racing. Most of all that feeling you get with 5k to go when you know you have a serious shot to win!

Best memory from racing: Winning Mt. Hamilton twice (as a cat 4, but ill take it!)

Worst memory from racing: I have blocked them all out.

Favorite Race: Mt. Hamilton or Pescadaro
