Top accomplishments and/or results since being an Achieve athlete are:

The best part about being an Achieve athlete is:

Focusing on getting the work done without falling prey to my own foolish inclinations about what sort of training is a good idea. Getting great support from a compassionate, experienced coach.

The aspect I like most about cycling and/or racing is:

Exploring remote roads and forgotten places on long training rides. The thrill of exploring the limits of traction and piloting bikes through technical scenarios. The camaraderie of the eclectic community that surrounds the sport. The satisfaction of seeing dividends from your discipline.

My favourite bike is:

The steel frame I designed and welded in 2011 with the guidance of a longtime friend and mentor. Though it may be retired for a while now, I have been all over the U.S. with it, and ridden it places a road bike should probably not go. It was the first real road bike I ever owned.

The cycling/sporting accomplishment I’m most proud of is:

I’m looking back fondly on when I rode 600km through the night on a 30lb frankenbike built up from a 1969 Raleigh frame my senior year of high school.

If I could be one animal I would be a:

I would be a red fox. I would like to live in the woods and have a secret den I only knew about. They are nimble, swift, and easily disappear. But I get the sense they share meaningful closeness with a select few.

Of the following three facts, two are true and one is false:

Grew up obsessed with skateboarding.
I am an only child.
I totally used to hang out with the dudes from Metallica.

My goals for the season include:

-Podium in one Cat 3 Road Race in 2015
-Podium in one Cat 3 Criterium in 2015.
-Increase my tactical prowess, bike handling, and self-confidence, especially in criteriums.
-Race as much as possible, gain experience and tactical savvy, especially in position battle situations.
-Work towards a category 3-2 upgrade.
