After ten years of rowing, the transition to cycling helped me stay in shape while racing allows me to satisfy my desire for competition. I also enjoy all the new places I get to see while out riding.
Specialized Tarmac. The SL2 was my first carbon road bike and I have always ridden one since. I love the snap and versatility of the bike. The Di2 upgrade and the perfect fit without changing out any parts also helps out a fair amount.
My top cycling achievement currently is winning the Georgia Cat 4 State Championship in the criterium. The sporting accomplishment would either be racing at the Henley Royal Regatta in 2008 or being a 3 time Division III national rowing champion.
Cheetah; not only are they the fastest land animal on earth, they are also an apex predator and top of the food chain.
