Background


For many years I was a contest surfer and did all the traveling to regional contests and I have many trophies to show it. I rode cross-country mountain bikes as a way to stay in shape when there were not any waves. This was about once a month and on a lot of rolling flat ground. I started jumping my cross-country bike and got hooked after I realized how much fun mountain bikes could be, but I broke my collar bone late in august.
I bought a 2010 Specialized Enduro expert size large after my collarbone was healed up enough to ride. I rode it for a few months and traded it for a 2008 Specialized Demo 8. I shuttled and hiked a lot. 10-20 runs a week. I improved a lot in a sort period of time. In Spring 2011 I sold the demo frame and bought a 2008 Intense M6 frame. I bought a set of Azonic Outlaw wheels at the same time through Azonics’ program on Hookit.com. The wheels held up for a month during summer and are very light.
In spring 2011 I started racing, which I really enjoy, and my contest placing has improved. I am currently participating in the local CCCX downhill series.

Highlights

I am improving fast. 11th at sea otter in cat 2 in spring 2011. One month at Whistler, BC during the summer. 2nd in cat 2 in the third race of the Northstar Championship series. 1st in Cat 2 race #1 of the CCCX X-Fusion series.

Goals

My goal for the next year is to compete in more races and move up to expert/cat 1. I have been improving fast and plan to continue doing so over the next year.
