Years Racing

BMX – 14 years

4x -  5 years

Racing Disciplines

4X, Dual Slalom and Downhill

My objective is to become a dominant 4X competitor in the National and World Cup Series. Throughout the series of domestic races, I want to become faster and stronger and a more seasoned rider (which will bring the USA back into the forefront of international 4X racing). I am looking forward to resuming Downhill racing after a leg injury in 2007, which will also be good cross training for 4X and Dual Slalom.
