I was raised in a family heavily involved in outdoor recreation. I grew up skiing, backpacking, hunting, fishing and dabbling in all different cycling disciplines. The bike became my favorite way to explore the world, push myself to new limits, and fuel my competitive drive. I eventually went to college in Durango, Colorado, where I met my girlfriend, and together we launched into our young careers as professional cyclists. I’m now specializing in off-road endurance events with the goal of winning the Life Time Grand Prix.
