I started riding in 1985 with a team called Rainbow Sports out of the San Fernando Valley. I have done well over 300 races. I started racing/riding because I hated sports that involved a ball, and I saw Greg Lemond ride and thought I wanted to do that. how hard could it be. ┬áCan’t we all ride a bike? Almost 30 years later I am still trying to get good at riding a bike fast.
I was also an early adopter of triathlon and have done over 100 races. As well as completing 2 Ironman triathlons.
