When did you join pedal? 2017

How long have you been riding and racing? I’ve been riding 12 years and racing for 10 years off and on

What have you done to add value for our sponsors recently? How did you do it? I have tagged our sponsors in some pretty sweet photos. I did it with the power of the #!

What sponsor cant you live without, and what product or service of theirs do you like/need so much? Tailwind Nutrition.  Because it’s an all around great product delivering the key nutrients that the body needs, resulting in unwavering performance.

Favorite motivational quote/saying? Find what is powerful to you and let it empower you.

Best race or ride experience or highlight? 2014 Para-National Road Race. I was in a pack with gold medalist Joe Berenyi. Even though that sounds cool, it was brutal! It was attack after attack for two straight hours. I was completely drained. It took me over an hour of lying on the side of the road to muster up enough energy to stand. Then about another 30min to be able to walk to my car using my bike as a crutch.

What are your goals or what are you looking forward to in 2017? April 28-30th Para-Nationals in Grand Junction. All I want is to hit the next level time standard on my TT. Anything else is icing on the cake.

Thank you to our amazing sponsors! #pedalracing #pedalonline #pedaloflittleton #pactimo#stages #cannondale #giro #hshive #tailwind #sram#athleteinsight #thresholdendurance#romanositaliangrill #manictraining #fizik
