Experience Raced as a junior in the 80s primarily in Sacramento Valley and surrounding foothills, accomplishing little more than a robust appreciation for competitive cycling. Participated in handful of races against large and unfriendly Northern Europeans in what was then West Germany following high school, after which I abandoned my dream to achieve at least mediocrity in competitive cycling. Raced several multi-sport events in college and after graduate school—decided I really only enjoyed the cycling portion of the races.
Favorite race(s) Nevada City Classic
Pre-ride beverage Cytomax or whatever has been left by my 4 year old
Pre/post-ride hangout Pre-ride – looking for gear in my garage; Post-ride – watching my girls because I “have been gone all morning!”
Overindulgent meal An entire medium sized Zachary's pizza (deep dish, artichoke and garlic)
Retirement/current bike Litespeed Appalachian (cyclocross bike); all road bikes equipped primarily with Dura Ace groups; Maverick ML7/5 and Gary Fisher Sugar 1 Mt. Bikes
