My favorite bike is my Focus cyclocross bike because I bought it from Jeremy Powers. It constantly reminds me of what he represents--someone who has achieved next-level greatness while remaining an incredibly kind as a person. It's also super intimidating, because I constantly feel like I don't deserve to throw my leg over a bike he used to ride.

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

I love that you experience things at an entirely different level, through a combination of heightened awareness and the immense pain you endure while cycling. The view from the top of a mountain might be pretty if I got there by car. Standing there with my bike, a head full of memories, and searing lungs and legs heightens the experience 100 times.

My favorite bike is my Focus cyclocross bike because I bought it from Jeremy Powers. It constantly reminds me of what he represents–someone who has achieved next-level greatness while remaining an incredibly kind as person. It’s also super intimidating, because I constantly feel like I don’t deserve to throw my leg over a bike he used to ride.

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

Completing Levi’s Granfondo solo in 100+ degree heat. I was happy to finish, as I crashed out and broke some ribs the previous year.

If I could be one animal I would be a:

My dog, Truman. His daily playground is Crissy Field, one of the most beautiful places on earth. He has an amazing life and doesn’t have any real responsibilities.

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

I tried out for one play in my life–as a lighting tech–and was chosen as the lead. My resting heart rate is the lowest my doctor has tested (46 bpm–sadly, it hasn’t translated to cycling success). When I travel to a new country for the first time I always make a point of going skydiving.

My goals for the upcoming season include:

1) Be in the best cycling shape of my life for the InGamba Donkey Week trip

2) Complete the Donkey Week, including the longest stage (226km) which is further than I’ve ridden before

3) Improve all aspects of my cycling ability in order to be in the top tier of my cycling group rides 4) Develop great training habits that I’m able to incorporate even when traveling or if I have minimal time to invest (during intense work periods, for instance)
