Racer/Adventure

I'm just a small town guy that loves to be outside! Growing up, my friends and family showed me that the best way to see the world was by planning trips around outdoor activities. Of those, the bike has always been my favorite. Racing has been my catalyst. It has led me to amazing places and some of the greatest trails on earth... at high speeds!
