Willie and I suited up to race today at the sequoia classic: Sometimes that just how the cookie crumbles. But today wasn’t one of the those days. The cookie sprouted some arms and legs and ripped our beautifully crafted plans to pieces after a relatively flawless 70 minutes by Willie and myself. Willie got taken out with 4 to go right when he told me to go to the front and bring the break back. Took me a lap to realize he hit the deck. I went off solo to try and bridge to the break and made it within 2 sec of the 6 man break and erupted into a million pieces, getting stuck in no man’s land for a lap then getting caught with 2/3rds of a lap to go and finishing 21st, first spot out of the money. FML. And Willie wrecked another kit and cracked his fork on his second ride on the new KTM. You will end up in my belly yet, cookie.

Grew up in the bay area and moved to Davis around 10 years old. I saw tons of people out cycling there and ended up getting into it. I have been riding and racing since I was 10 and was the kid in middle school and high school with 'shaved legs.' I went to Cal Poly where I have a BA in Architecture, a minor in Sustainble design, and kind of need to finish this Master's I have been working on for far too long (traveling and bike racing got in the way and is WAY more fun). I live on a 20 acre ranch just outside of San Luis Obispo where I have a pretty solid garden, occasionally ducks, chickens and bees, and an Airbnb 5th wheel or two to help pay the rent. Since 2010 I have been the USAC Collegiate Athlete Representative and have run the WCCC road collegiate season for the past two years. I love all aspects of cycling and try to give back where I can.
