I started racing bikes in 2001, when most of the guys on the team were using training wheels. I got my start on mountain bikes and raced a lot of the NORBA circuit (think PRT for MTB’s). In 2005 I got my start in crit racing, winning the cat 3 race at Downers Grove. This was the Pro/Elite National Championship and when I won the cat 3 race, I thought I was the cat 3 National Champion. I won the Cat 2 race at Downers Grove the following year and decided someday I would be the Elite National Champion, it took quite a few years, but I finally achieved it! I am super excited to give things a real go full time with Cyclus Sport in 2018!
