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

I love the competition and tactics – to me, bike racing is like a chessboard, but the caveat is you need to have the fitness to make the right moves.

My favourite bike is:

My Pinarello FP2 – I picked it up when I was living/working in England after being told in no uncertain terms, that if I wanted to come back to the club rides, I’d need to ditch the tri-bike and come back with a proper road bike. Though almost everything has been replaced on it but the frame, I’m still racing on it today.

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

I think I’m most proud of this past cyclocross season as a whole – I was able to land on multiple podiums, but am still hoping to land that spot next time around.

If I could be one animal I would be a:

Honeybadger – ’nuff said.

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

I’m a USA Sailing certified instructor.
I took up cycling after an injury nixed my competitive walking Olympic dreams.
I brew my own beer, “Stu-Brew” if you will.

My goals for the upcoming season include:

1. Get on the podium for the GC at the Chico Stage race
2. Improve my “jump” and the ability to make hard selections in races.
3. Win at least one event and make at least three podium appearances before cyclocross season (any road discipline)
4. Improve my race tactics/ability to read the race.
5. Set my self up for an upgrade to Cat 3 for the start of the 2017 season.
