About Me:
I became involved in BMX riding at the age of 14. At 21 when I purchased my first mountain bike from Delta Cyclery in Stockton, Ca. I began to ride trails in Auburn and Rockville with the guys from the shop. It was not long after I was riding Tahoe, Downieville and racing. One day, while flipping through an early 2000 issue of Mountain Bike Action Magazine, I ran into an ad for “XTERRA Off Road Triathlon” in Half Moon Bay. I immediately cut the entry form out, mailed it in and joined the masters swim program at the University of the Pacific. Two months later I did my first triathlon. I have since then won the XTERRA age group National Championship in 2007 and turned pro in 2008. I am now train with, former XTERRA World Champ, Jamie Whitmore.
