Adventure/Racer

I've always been one to travel and try new things. For a long while that was XC racing. From local races growing up in New England all the way to European World Cups, it was all fun. Lately its been more enduro and adventure-y trans style races. But I still find my way back to XC now and again. If it's a fun event in a cool place, I'll try and be there.
