New Bike

The past year and a half has been challenging. I didn’t get to race at all really due to recovering from a bike accident and a car accident, which both involved vehicles. I’ve been training nonstop in the gym and getting my equipment ready for the new race season. I finally got a handcycle I can call my own and I can’t wait to finally race in it. It’s been through many adjustments and probably needs a few more [...]

2018 – Busiest year of my life in review

Hey guys! What a year… incredible ups, but also strong downs. I’m thankful for all places I’ve been, raced, worked & enjoyed. Think about a year pretty much living out of your suitcase. Still, I had time for my wife, since (most of) my trips were quick strike missions. There were race trips; convention work trips and a lot of overnight Irvine trips (working with Freedom Innovations, testing a state of the art knee they’re developing). Talking about racing, the witches were [...]

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet (well maybe hail) keeps me from swim practice – yes, in an outdoor pool. 😊 Dedication to be my best.👍

Fiesta Island Time Trial Champion Alfonso Garibay

I closed out my racing season on Sunday October 14th 2018 by earning the Fiesta Island 20k Individual Time Trial Series Championship in the challenged athletes category which includes cyclist’s that pedal with their legs not just arm powered handcyclist’s like me. The series consisted of 5 races thru out the year. I raced in all of them not an easy thing to do considering other races in and out of the state of California where I live, life commitments, [...]

Snowboarding World Cup at Dubai (?!!)

Hey guys, My sports life has just turned 360 degrees as of last week! As most of you know, my category in Paratriathlon is cut off from Tokyo2020. So… I’ve been thinking about a dream of trying for Winter Olympics in snowboarding, and my 1st opportunity just came up. It all happened faster than I wanted to, but I have been in touch with the Brazilian Snow Federation and the opportunity to get into the rankings presented itself and I had to [...]
