For the Love of Sport

Ever since I can remember, my true passion in life has been competition.  I am an athlete pursuing my dream.  I am always searching for that unequivocal high that comes from victory in sport.  There is nothing that makes me happier than finishing a race and exceeding my own expectations.  I am driven by the feeling of elation that comes with achieving competitive glory.

As a cyclist, my ultimate goal has been to represent my country in the Olympic Games.  For me, this has always symbolized the peak athletic experience.  I am honored to have been a part of the 2012 US Olympic Team and am proud of what I’ve accomplished in my career.  I’ve been retired from professional cycling since 2016.

“Outstanding achievement lies within the reach of those who reach beyond themselves.”
