Background

I started building little jumps in the 5th grade. Then in highschool I met some new friends who own ranches and other pieces of land. Their families' have tractors so we started to build bigger jumps and trails. I joined my highschool MTB team and compete with them each year. I look to progress with my DJ style as well as my DH and XC speed.

Highlights

I started out as a little freshman on the MTB team at school. I practice three times a week with the team and got faster. I peaked my sophomore year placing 2nd at CA State Champs. I ride with a buddy who is a very competitive dirt jumper. As I ride more with him, I learn new tricks, just a couple of weeks ago I learned 360's thanks to that guy. Also, I have always ridden DH, and participated in my first Sea Otter taking a 5th place. I continue to push myself in order to progress the sport everyday.

Goals

Place top ten in Cat 1 Downhill races (including a couple GRT's), Get my 360's dialed in as well as learn tailwhips. I want to continue to podium in Varsity/Cat 1 XC racing. I want to increase my speed in all areas and ride to the best of my ability all of the time and have a good time doing it.
