FAVORITE RACE: Ore to Shore MTB Epic
FAVORITE TRAINING RIDE: Any century ride with my friend Mike AVERAGE DAY CONSISTS OF: Waking up early so I can get a moderate 1.5 hour to 2 hour ride in before work – working 11 hours at a local bike shop – commute by bike home. Quick make something to eat and jump into bed to talk on the phone with my Kate.
MENTORS: Still looking for one of these…I’ve had to fight for everything I have with little help from others, however sometimes I feel it’s because I like to do things for myself, by myself and am rather stubborn.
FAVORITE RACE FOOD: Culvers frozen custard!!! . . . okay, it is a POST race food but still a race food! Favorite race food would be vanilla GU – easy to tuck under my shorts.
WORSE EXPERINCE IN A RACE: In the second race of the 2008 season in Lake Geneva, WI I was in the final lap and on the wheel of the dude in front going through a rock garden when he slowed going off the line – I accelerated to stay on the line and he darted back to the line sending me immediately over my handlebars and surprisingly directly under his bike. I had deep evidence of his large chain ring running down my arm…and still do! Ended up holding on to sixth after the crash.
WHAT'S ON YOUR KITCHEN TABLE RIGHT NOW: My Mac Powerbook, boxes from new software updating, bills, candle surrounded by stones, jersey designs and a winter hat and gloves.
IF YOU WEREN'T AN ATHLETE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE: Really bored.
