How has cycling changed your life?

If it wasn’t for cycling I would probably have become a marathon runner junky with lots of leg injuries. Cycling has freedom from overuse injuries and the ability to train without too much holding back. Cycling has also given me so many friendships and so many travel experiences. It has been a huge part of my life and it has certainly affected most of my life for the past 15 years.


What was your first bike?

My first race bike in the US was a Cannondale CX bike


What makes you laugh?

My wife can be really funny and joyful and that sure makes me laugh. I have a friend in Denmark, his name is Niels Johansen, and he has almost killed me a few times by making me laugh so hard I couldn’t breathe. I don’t think anyone can make me laugh so much out of control like Niels. 


Do you read directions or just dive in?

Depends on the consequences of messing up. If it is of no danger to mess up, then screw the directions…


What is your favorite pie?

Tilford and Trudy pies
