I am a father to two wonderful boys, Nicholas and Alexander. I am a bike shop owner in San Marcos - San Elijo Hills... and Hall of Fame Ultra Cyclist - of 3 different cycling organizations. . I climbed 1,000,000 feet in 2015 in only 10 months (legitimate gain no iPhone Strava app or Elevation Correction which gives you more gain).  I repeated 1M feet in 2016 and 2018 I have also Everest 7X -- 29,029 feet in one single ride #everesting . Currently hold the record for the shortest Everest in North and South America 29,200 feet in 78 miles. I have been named a legendary Ultra Cyclist– a title I consistently work hard to live up to because of what it means in the small ultra cycling community. I have completed 2- Person Race Across America (RAAM) in 2007. I have finished the Furnace Creek 508 SOLO six consecutive years in 2006, 2007 (Fixed Gear) 2008, 2009, 2010 2011, then came back in 2013 (tandem) and 2014, 2015 (tandem) and 2017 as a Two Person Mixed setting the course record with Lori Hoechlin. A total of 10 Furnace Creek/Silver State 508 finishes with a PR of 28 hours 52 minutes. I was inducted in the Furnace Creek 508 Hall of Fame class of 2011. I am a Trans Iowa finisher (only 57 finishers out of 250 participants in the last five years at the time). Trans-Iowa is 320 mile totally unsupported gravel race held under adventure racing format. I have also attained Super Randonneur (200km, 300km, 400km and 600km unsupported events) multiple years. I am a cycling coach with clients ranging from endurance cyclists, to triathletes, to beginners just entering the sport of cycling. And now that you read all of that — I am also just an everyday Joe, just like you. I own a bike shop work and 60 hours a week, have a family, have a coaching business and try to do ultra events on limited training time. I’ve never been a professional cyclist. I do what I do out of passion for the sport. I suffer just like you do. I get it done out of pure stubbornness, pride and perseverance. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you find it informative, entertaining, and inspiring. If you would like a certain topic covered please drop me a line.
