The best part about being an Achieve athlete is:

Coach Dana is very flexible in helping me balance my training and race calendar around a very busy work schedule and a few non-cycling commitments. I’m able to know where I need to make sacrifices, either personal/social or in setting expectations for certain races. I have a very long calendar, so we’re able to look to the important races and focus on getting ready.

I love cycling because it takes me to beautiful places with friends, and makes me push my limits.

Cycling: 1st Copperopolis Road Race, 2nd Wards Ferry Road Race

Sporting in general: Climbing the NW face of half dome.

If I could be one animal I would be a:
