Hometown: Blacksburg, VA
Racing Age: 22
Began Riding: Shortly after learning to walk, began racing in 2006.
Day Job: Engineering Student
Strengths: Starting things I can’t finish, descents, gnarly bits of
trail, smack talking, dropping my chain, breaking things and doing
dumb things on bikes not meant for it.
Bikes: Gunnar Rockhound 29er, Jamis Nemisis 650b, Trek Ion Pro, Trek
Madone 2.1, and other sketchy cobbled together machines
Favorite race? Shenandoah Mountain 100, I may be awful at
ultras but all day on the bike is so much fun!
Favorite place to ride? Dupont State Forest, NC
Favorite riding buddy? Luke Woodard, talking each other into
epicly long, dumb or otherwise silly rides (typically on singlespeeds
or fixies in the rain on gravel) is an art.
Drivetrain of choice? 1x hopefully 10 working gears
When was the last time you dropped your chain? When was the last
time I rode a bike? Probably then.
Best pre-race food? Lasagna, cornbread and ice cream in that order
at least 10hours before the start.
