My desire to ride came for my passion for skiing. I wanted to feel strong at the beginning of the season so riding most of the year kept me closer to where I wanted to be. Now my passion for riding has never been stronger. I am primarily a road rider and like it flat and fast! The best part about this sport is the comradery and friendships I have made and that really adds to the team spirit. I enjoy long group rides and have done many centuries with my longest being 157 miles at just under a 20mph average. Only raced once but plan on doing my part for the team. This season I have a few thing I will focus on, do more elevation, ride a double century and win a race!
