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.

I was fortunate enough to race professionally as a cyclist for 10 years of my life. My goal was to represent my country in the Olympic Games. That honor always symbolized the peak athletic performance.  I achieved my dream when I represented the United States in the cycling road race at the 2012 London Olympic Games. I am proud of my accomplishments and grateful for the opportunity I had to travel the world and race overseas. As I look ahead towards the future, I am excited to mentor and develop the next generation of competitive cyclists.

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