was a pro over ten years ago, walked away from the sport and gained 90lbs. dealt with anxiety depression and alcohol abuse for 8 years till I married my wife Michelle, quit drinking about 5 years ago and married the best girl in the world in 15. when we got on the plane from our honeymoon in oct of 15 I was 256 lbs and I told Michelle I was going to take control of my health and have since lost 70 lbs and ride and race pretty regularly. I own and operate 60 low income rental units in Endicott NY and riding is my break from all the stress. I love cycling now. 40 years old and proud of it. I will tuck any section of road if it means I can pedal less.
