Background

Started riding mountain bikes in 1993 for fun, checked out a local XC race and that looked like fun, so I gave it a try and in April 1993 at the Sizzler Classic I raced my first XC race. I found out early I hated climbing and lived for the downhill sections. So in 1995 I gave downhill racing a go, in the old days it was DH on Saturday and XC on Sunday using the same bike. Pretty much been racing gravity since, to include some free ride and slope style.

Highlights

Earned the ABA District CA-08 number 2 plate, for 2007 in the men's cruiser class. Returned to racing and riding after a spinal cord injury in 2010.

Goals

Return to racing full-time and be competitive at the National level (again).
