Favorite Race: Oxford Dam
The Stable: 2011 Epic Carbon Comp 29er (Big wheel keeps on rolling....)
Craziest Ride: Following some locals we met in Pisgah national Forest (North Carolina), they had a "great loop" that we could take... They apparently were cats, because they didn't seem to care that this loop took us well into total dark of night
How It All Began: Both my knees got trashed while serving in the Marine Corps. So after I got out, my brother helped me get set up on a mountain bike (1993 Cannondale M700). And finally in 2003 I decided to start racing. The first race was aweful, dead last out of 50 some-odd riders, but I decided to keep trying and have had a blast with it ever since.
Favorite trail: Kingdom Trails! These are in my home town and where I learned to mountain bike. Original favorite trail; pines to widow maker!
