Favorite race

Revenge of the Siskiyous, circa 1990. The first time I beat my Old Man, one of my best performances to date.

Favorite place to ride

On a MTB, Sedona, AZ. On a road bike, Mallorca. On a gravel bike, anywhere I haven’t ridden yet.

First bikeOld Blue - a BMX bike my dad built from spare parts
Favorite bikeAnthem Advanced Pro 29
Favorite training bike

It would probably be my Revolt, as that's the one that I ride the most. With 40c or wider tires I can have fun getting lost on just about any road or trail I encounter near my home in Central Oregon.
