I got into cycling in 1987 as part of a rehab after shattering my knee in a vehicle accident while active duty in the Air Force. Immediately loved it and was racing Cat-3 two years later. After discharging from A.F. I didn’t ride much due to new career, marriage, becoming a father, etc. Got back into cycling around 2009 and fell in love with it all over again. Recently retired from 23 years in law enforcement and have a desire to race again… before I get too old. Love being part of a supportive team and looking forward to Racing and improving in the coming years…Velo Kings ROCK!
My amazing wife and I are busy raising our 3 teenagers, while trying to balance careers, love and adventure. We’re not doing too good with the balance though. Spent my 20’s ripping trails on a MTB and carving mountain roads on a motorcycle. In my 30’s I focused on running and becoming an ultra marathoner until buying a used road bike a couple years ago. Now I watch cycling videos on YouTube and enjoy suffering alone in my garage in the hopes that I won’t get dropped on team rides or flicked off the back at the next race.
