Q: How many years have you been racing road bikes? How many mountain  

bike races have you done?

A: I’ve been racing for 25 years on the road. I’ve done only about 15  

mt. bike races in my career but one was winning the inaugural Vail 100.

 

Q: What’s the lowdown on this last race of yours?

A: The last official race I’m doing for my road racing career is the  

Texas Tough USA Crit Series race in Dallas TX. It’s the biggest crit  

in TX but I wish it was in Boulder CO where I started racing. I’m  

still planning on racing local races and anything that looks like  

it’s gonna be a ton of fun. I’m just not gonna race full time  

anymore. Let the fun rides begin!

 

Q: What gear are you running for sswc09?

A: I have no idea. Probably whatever is on my bike now. Which I also  

don’t know the answer to. Is a 53X12 too big?

 

Q: What is your best mtb trick? Road bike trick?

A: I’m pretty low on the trick totem pole but I like to flick small  

rocks and sticks off the trail when I’m riding. I can only do it to  

the left though. Pretty lame I know. My best road bike trick is being  

able to adjust my barrel adjuster on my rear derailer while riding  

the bike. I’ve had to do it in quit a few races over the years.

 

Q: If you had an hour and a half to ride from town, what route would you

take with the 1×1?

A: I’d probably do Sailing Hawks then over to Hidden Valley, to Star- 

wars, to roots, to the new dump trail, to Spirt trail.

 

Q: What is your current 1×1 bike setup?

A: I’m riding a full carbon Fuji, Mt fuji model. 100m Rock Shox  

Recon. It’s pretty light and stiff  which is nice for SS’n. It’s a  

bike I got from the Toyota United team and just striped the parts off  

of it. Nothing too special.

 

Q: Do you want the tattoo?

A: Got to be honest, don’t have any tats and not really lookin to get  

one anytime soon. So no.
