How long have you been riding and racing? Second year of racing

What have you done to add value for our sponsors recently? How did you do it? I really appreciate what our sponsors do for the team and wish I could do more for them!  That said, I try to shop at pedal whenever I can and am a voracious consumer of Honey Stinger products.

What sponsor cant you live without, and what product or service of theirs do you like/need so much?Stages ( Stages makes a great power meter. I appreciate their generous sponsorship of pedal Racing.

Favorite motivational quote/saying? “It never gets easier, you just go faster.” – Greg LeMond

Best race or ride experience or highlight? I won the 2016 Cat 5 OZ Road Race, which was awesome. I upgraded soon thereafter, and proceeded to be peloton fodder for the rest of 2016. However, I had a wonderful time at the Steamboat Springs Stage Race – I had been sick for two weeks prior and wasn’t in good shape. I freed myself from the burden of worrying about placing, and instead just enjoyed a weekend of racing with great teammates (and my family). If I had to choose between winning a race and enjoying racing, I would choose the latter.

What are your goals or what are you looking forward to in 2017? I am looking forward to seeing our 40+4 group work effectively as a TEAM. The 2016 SM4’s had three riders (David McNeill, Will Pirkey, Nate Pitzer) who are all very strong in general, but each have a different “top strength”. These guys worked hard to get each other on podiums, and vaulted pR to #2 in the team cup. Regardless of individual outcomes, I want to see a core group of at least 5 40+4’s working together and taking some road cup points. The podiums will come if we can work together.
