I am a husband and father of two girls (both athletes and scholars), with one in high school and the other in college. I am a Christian and my wife and I have been married for 22 years. I work as a mechanical engineer and travel around the country. I ride on the Masters team for Free Flite Bicycles, formerly as a road/TT racer but now I primarily train and race off-road. I also frequently use Zwift with a stationary bike for structured indoor workouts and virtual racing. My strong suit is long, high-output efforts and I use power and heart rate data consistently in my training. I record all my rides and races on Strava through a premium membership. I have used training tools including CTS, Strava Training Plans, TrainerRoad and Sufferfest. I was formerly on the USA Amateur National Duathlon Team. I often advise other riders on equipment selection and training methods for mountain bike and gravel racing. I am 47 years old and I have been an endurance athlete for over 30 years.
