Howdy! My names Dave Hill and I've been racing bikes in one form or another for the past 20 years. I dabbled in triathlon a bit 6-8 years ago, but found I was always looking forward to riding my bike, so I decided to just stick with that. I raced a lot of road and XC mtn bike when I was younger and in college, but these days I've settled into primarily racing long course XC events like the NUE series, Epic Ride Events and regional 24 hours races and Regional Enduro Events such as the Idaho Enduro Series and Trans-Cascadia. I love racing my bike, travel and the process of training that gets you there. I've used various power meters in the past between powertap, SRM and Stages and have found that the Stages are pretty killer, simple to use and efficient products. I work full time as a physician assistant, as does my wife, and we have 4 kids. It's all about maximizing quality time on the bike these days, so to make it all work, I've found that a powermeter is vital. I like the idea of being involved with a team in that it brings on a sense of comradery that is sometimes hard to find within the mtb world. I have plans to race the 25hrs of Frog Hollow this November in a 4 man team(we won last year!) and then call it a season. 2019 isn't set in stone yet, but have loose plans for a couple of Utah Icup races, maybe an epic rides event or two, a 24hr event or two, Downieville, an NUE stop and then maybe Masters XC Worlds in Mont St. Anne; should be a fun year! Otherwise I'm always working on local trails and helping out as an assistant coach with our local NICA program.
