“Why” I train and race bicycles…1. Both of my parents passed away young due to health issues. I grew up without a father…I have 2 kids that I want to be here for, set a good example for, and watch grow up. 2. I was a 2 sport college athlete. I jogged off 50 lbs (and all of the cartilage in my hips). I ended up getting 2 metal hips at age 37. I am now 47…I miss competition. I may not be able to run anymore, but I can ride…hard!!!I’m former division 3 football player and wrestler. Former college strength and conditioning coach. A current scout for the Minnesota Vikings. Had both hips resurfaced at age 37 and moved from multi sport to amateur bike racer. Road, mountain and cyclocross. Travel 150 days a year and balance it all with a wife and and two awesome kids. My 2022 addition to this is…both of my kids tore their ACLs during covid and they are training to get back to the sports they love. I had to step away from racing but still train. I want to take some time for me now to get back to competition and “Epic” rides.
