About Me

Mountain biking for me is the ultimate escape; it's like a magic "reset button" that wipes away the troubles of the real world. I've transitioned from a 26" Hardtail to a FS 29er to ultimately finding my niche as a dedicated 29" rigid single speeder. I may not be the strongest rider at any given race (typically far from it), but I guarantee that I will push myself and have fun doing it!
