1- What do you love about riding and racing your bicycle?
For me it's mostly about the competition and the challenge. I'm always motivated to get faster, to be challenged, and never settling for 2nd place. Doesn't always work out, but always trying. Every once in a while I try to remember to slow down and take it all in, and to not take any ride, fast or slow for granted. Enjoy the ride!
2- What do you love about riding and racing your bicycle for Hagerty?
New to the team for 2015, but am really looking forward to riding and racing with a great group of Masters men!
3- What are some of your proudest moments or biggest accomplishments, on the bike and in life?
Very proud of progressing from a Beginner racer and barely keeping up, to the Expert level in just a few years. Loads of fun riding and racing with the fast guys. Proudest moment in a specific event was Barry Roubaix 2015. Finished 12th out of 100 in the Fat Bike Open class just behind some very fast racers. By far the funnest, fastest, most enjoyable, most memorable race I've done so far. Proudest moment in life? Watching my two sons grow up into fine young men.
4- Please tell us something about yourself and your life off the bike. What are your hobbies, what do you do for work, tell us something about yourself that we don't know?
Work at Great Lakes Stainless as a Project Manager.
Married to Cindy, 31 years (high school sweethearts!), two sons Chris (27yo) and Patrick (25yo), and one dog! Love soccer and hockey! First grandchild on the way this December!
Started riding bikes when I was 15, in high school, with best buddies and have loved it ever since. Took a long hiatus while the kids were growing up and work and soccer coaching kept me too busy, but have gotten back into bikes for the last 8 years and still love it.
