Who I Am
I grew up riding bikes on the east coast. My first real dh race was at plattekil bike park in 2004. I loved every second of that race including the two crashes and my last place finish. I continued to race despite not being very good.
When I turned 17 I was able to upgrade to jr x. I raced my heart out. Almost literally. A week before my 18th birthday I crashed hard in a race. I blew my shoes off I hit the ground so hard. I lacerated my spleen and liver collapsed my left lung and punctured my kidney. It was awesome. I finished that race and even with that bad of a crash took 3rd. I wasn’t there for awards. I was in a helicopter over NYC.
I told my parents on the way home from the hospital anything could kill me. I would be happiest if I was riding when it happened. Setting it in stone that I was never going to stop racing. In 2009 I went pro. Though I never won a pro race I did get on the podium a bunch of times. I still have aspirations of winning one still.
