Ever since my first race when I was 9 I’ve been hooked on racing and can’t seem to get enough. Being part of the Elbowz Racing Team for its first year was a great experience and I really look forward to an exciting 2012 season and helping the team achieve its goals. Winning best young rider at both the San Dimas and Nature Valley Stage races in 2011 have been the highlights of my career to date. I also won the Iron Hill Criterium (USA Crit Series) last summer which was an awesome experience. Favorite races include the Sunset Loop at Redlands, Athens Twilight Criterium, and the Tour of Lawrence KU Circuit Race. Representing the USA at the World Cup Cyclo-Cross race in Kalmthout, Belgium was also very cool. When I’m not on my bike or traveling, it’s nice to return to my hometown of Lawrence, Kansas and spend time with friends and family, and I love getting out and hiking or playing catch with our dog.
