About MeI grew up in Florissant MO. about 20 miles north of St. Louis. I started riding the local trails at 11 years old and rode BMX two years. I also worked in the local bike shop for a short time. Bought my first mountain bike in 1985. I now live in Madison KS. and love the terrain in this state. I love to ride hard and love a challenge. Hope to see some of you fellow singletrackers on the trails.
