When did you join pedal? I have 4 jerseys, so 2014?

How long have you been riding and racing? Riding bikes since 4 years old. Mountain biking since middle school. Racing since 2003. Only got more serious about it in 2013.

What have you done to add value for our sponsors recently? How did you do it? Well, I use their stuff and hashtag them on my social media outlets.

What sponsor cant you live without, and what product or service of theirs do you like/need so much? I am a Clydesdale rider, so it is obvious that I like food.  Taste is very important to me but when it comes to food on the bike, performance is important too.  Honey Stinger products both taste good and give me the energy I need to finish races and train hard.

Favorite motivational quote/saying? “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” 1 Corinthians 9:24

Best race or ride experience or highlight? The Gunnison 1/2 Growler last year was a lot of fun but painful. I went out to pre-ride the course and crashed being stupid. My left forearm was bloodied, I couldn’t lift my arm past horizontal or my shoulder would hurt and I had some big bloody scrapes on my hip and knee. That night I didn’t sleep well in my tent. But the next day was great! Perfect weather and even more perfect trails. I was quite sore the rest of the week and it took some time for my wounds to heal. But it was all worth it for such a fun race.

What are your goals or what are you looking forward to in 2017? I want to get on the podium in the sport class this season. I’m also looking forward to riding with my teammates. They are a great group of people.
