2017 Season Update

As we close the 2017 cycling season and start 2017-2018 training season racing, I look back at the opportunities Team PossAbilities has given me and can’t help be feel humbled. The results I had this season were solid and I continue to improve each year. The opportunity to travel to Arizona, Colorado, California, Nevada, and Florida to race has given me more experience racing against some of the best in the county. This year some things started finally clicking....

Team PossAbilities Represented in Project Hero California Challenge

As a proud Team PossAbilities member, I was excited to learn that I was selected to participate in the Project Hero California Challenge from October 14-21, a 450 mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.  It will be some of the most challenging riding I've ever done as we go 450 miles over 7 days.  I can't wait to sport the Team PossAbilities kit on our sponsor day!!!  Thank you Team PossAbilities for opening doors!!!

Let’s Go Racing

Pensacola Cycling Classic

It was a great week in Pensacola, Florida, racing at the Pensacola Cycling Classic. The weather was amazing and the racing was outstanding. The Time Trial course was along the beach, the Road Race course through the western Florida forest, and the Crit in beautiful downtown Pensacola. I had a solid showing but was plagued with mechanical problems because of my handcycle that was damaged in transit. I'm looking forward to the St. George Marathon and Long Beach Marathon...
