Icicles on my bicycle. Fun to say, but the conditions that lead up to that point are questionable at best. Riding through iced-over puddles, the front wheel like the prow of a ship charging through early winter seas, the ensuing descent instantly harrowing as the realization of having literally frozen calipers takes place after cresting...

Racer Ready…

Definitely don’t call it a comeback. Just putting it out there... With that said, I was finally able to make good on a goal from this year and get back between the tape. For the first time since 2015, I entered and competed in an Elite Men’s DH race (a.k.a. the Pro Open in the... Continue Reading →

Necessary Flair

I don't dress particularly well, I don't flaunt items of value or importance, and I don't have "expensive taste" in the common sense of the phrase.

The Story Behind A Champion

For the second issue of Sender Mag, I went down to Oliver Springs, Tennesee to hang out with friend and racer, Neko Mulally at Windrock Bike Park. The intention of the piece was to take a glimpse into the life of a professional rider who is in fact so much more than just a name... Continue Reading →

Ride App Hero

I am a big fan of Strava, mostly. The reasons I enjoy the app are three-fold: As a washed-up racer, it allows me to still quantify my ride. It’s a rad training tool, providing me with just enough info to gauge my efforts. The app acts as a very interactive ride/memory log, which is neat.... Continue Reading →
