Favorite raceRevenge of the Siskiyous, circa 1990. The first time I beat my Old Man, one of my best performances to date.
Favorite place to rideOn 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 bikeMy first Anthem 29er. So many memories.
Favorite training bikeIt 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.
Dream vacation spotSedona, Arizona in the spring
