I'm an ex-pro XC racer, and continue to enjoy riding and competing in many disciplines of cycling. I have represented the US at world championships in BMX, 24 Hour Solo MTB, and Off-road Tri. Nowadays I still compete, but really enjoy branching out to long distance events, stage races, gravel, some road events, etc... especially events that I can do with my wife (also an endurance athlete/Ob-Gyn/Women's participation advocate). I enjoy being active in my local and regional cycling community; I was a NICA high school head coach in Logan, Utah, and continue to work with aspiring juniors here in California.
