“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.
