I was first introduced to a bicycle while riding on my dad’s handlebars when I was 3 years old in Chihuahua, Mexico. I loved every single moment of it and grew up experiencing the freedom of exploring Mexico on two wheels with my dad and brother. Cycling has allowed me to travel the world and meet so many amazing people through racing and training. I currently live in Golden, Colorado. When I’m not working at TrainingPeaks or helping buyers find their dream home, you can find me flying down the roads or trails with my dog, Fito Loquito.

Current favorite cycling gearMy bar bag because I can carry all the gear I need for long adventures, but also all the treats my dog “Fito Loquito” needs for shorter MTB rides.
Favorite place to rideFor MTB: the trails in Colorado, either Apex Mountain or Buffalo Creek.
For road: Taking the groads (gravel and roads) from Boulder up to Peak to Peak, then down to Nederland to grab a burrito and beer, and finally back to Boulder once again (bonus miles if you ride 25 miles back home to Golden).
Dream destinationIceland in the summer
What are you carrying on a long ride?My phone, two tubes and CO2’s, tire levers, rain jacket or vest, bandana, banana, Maurten gels, and lots of snacks to avoid bonking!
