  • About: I started mountain biking recreationally in 2010 and started Enduro format races in 2015. Cycling has been a huge part of my life beginning with BMX racing from 10-12 years old in Northern California. From there, school took over my life for over a decade until I landed in Colorado for work as a civil engineer. I showed up to Dakota Ridge for my very first ride in Colorado on my trusty hard tail single speed (Bianchi BUSS, for those familiar with the brown-gold atrocity) and was rudely introduced to what would become one of my favorite trails on the Front Range. Shortly thereafter, I moved to Golden, bought a new bike (Intense Tracer 275 for 2015 season), started riding obsessively with a group of rad local riders (i.e., DMC) and started racing for my favorite shop in Golden, Pedal Pushers Cyclery!
