Birthday? December 23, 1997
Where are you from and where do you live now? I am from and currently live in San Luis Obispo, California, but I do still consider Bend, Oregon as my second home. I lived in Bend for 10 years, and it is definitely the birthplace of my cycling career.
When you’re not riding your bicycle what would you likely be doing? When I’m not riding I’m most likely studying, in class, or making/drinking coffee. Pretty exciting, huh?
If you could describe cyclocross in 5 words what would they be? Power, Finesse, Suffering, Glory, Braap
Why cyclocross for you? Cyclocross is for me because the racing, training, and the scene, in general, is all really fun. It is a discipline of cycling that requires a well rounded athlete, not just a power house.
What are your main goals for the 2017-2018 season? My main goals for this season are to move into the top 10 of UCI ranked riders in the USA, defend my U23 National Championship title, and finish top 15 at U23 World Championships.
What is your favorite cyclocross race course in the US? My favorite course is probably Devou Park, which has been the Pan-Ams course the past few years in Cincinnati, OH. My favorite venue however, is probably Jingle Cross because of all the incredible spectators.
Favorite food? Soppressata Pizza, topped with a whole bunch of arugula.
Coffee or tea? Coffee all the way!
Espresso or latte? I do like the occasional latte, but I’d go for espresso or an Americano 95% of the time.
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate? I think I’m more of dark chocolate kind of guy. It makes me think that I’m at least trying to be a little bit healthy...
Favorite music? I'm sort all over the page when it comes to music. I typically listen to solid mix of Rap, EDM, and Grunge/Rock.
Favorite book? Young and Freedman’s University Physics?… Not really, but I feel like thats all I read anymore. But honestly, one of my favorite books is Ender’s Game.
Favorite movie? It sort of depends on the mood, but its probably a toss-up between Nacho Libre and Interstellar
Where do you want to go that you have not been to yet? I really want to go to Italy. The riding, the food, the history, the culture, and the cars all seem pretty awesome!
Morning person or night owl? I am much more of an early morning person. I just feel way more productive and motivated in the morning.
Where are you from and where do you live now? I'm from Jericho, Vermont, but now residing in Park City, Utah.
When you’re not riding your bicycle what would you likely be doing? Being a dad, working on the house, or skiing. These days, in that order.
If you could describe cyclocross in 5 words what would they be? Fun. Challenging. Rewarding. Intense. Captivating.
Why cyclocross for you? It's an amazing combination of fitness and skill. I strive to be good at both, so it's a natural fit.
What are your main goals for the 2017-2018 season? I'd like to get as many UCI C1 race podiums as possible and win the National Championships!
What is your favorite cyclocross race course in the US? It doesn’t get any more picturesque than Gloucester, MA., but I would have to say the most fun and challenging course to is the one at Devou Park in Cincinnati, OH.
Favorite food? Oh man, that's not fair. I guess my mom's Thanksgiving feast.
Coffee or tea? Coffee
Espresso or latte? I'm fairly new to the coffee thing, so lattes for now.
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate? DARK!
Favorite music? I'm pretty open minded, but I favor the Grateful Dead if I'm going to chill out and work on bikes for a while.
Favorite book? Not really a book worm, so Graham Watson's 20 Years of Cycling Photography...does that qualify?
Favorite movie? That's tough, so let's go with The Shawshank Redemption
Where do you want to go that you have not been to yet? Many, some will happen, and some probably won't, but hear goes: Glacier National Park, Skiing in Alaska and British Columbia, Nepal, New Zealand...I'll stop there.
Morning person or night owl? More on the night owl side right now.
