World Cup 1 “The Land Down Under”

It's January and this 2024 season is getting started a little sooner than most years. For the first time since I've been racing at world cups the race was held in hot and sunny Adelaide Australia in the peak of the summer. Usually world cups don't start until April so having one this early was out of the normal race calender. One thing that made this a tough trip from the...

2023 World Championships

The 2023 paracycling world championships was held in Glasgow Scotland and I was excited to be able to compete in my second world championships wearing my countries colors. My first time competing for Team USA was 2021 in Portugal. Unlike my first time in Portugal I am was in much better shape and a different classification. Upon arriving in Scotland I noticed the weather was actually better than I imagined it...

First World Cup Win!

This blog is a little late but time flies when you ride full time and work 2 jobs. Life can get away from us sometimes. Well, this year has been quite the experience and I'm eager to see what else is in store. This seems to be a recurring thing now that I'm going to the world cup in Oostende Belgium and doing well. Last year, I had one of my first ever world...

Italy is host to many professional cycling races so for me the chance to race...

World Cups 1 & 2

March had been a fairly uneventful month as far as racing has gone. Only race I competed in was the LA marathon on March 18th. I was able to place 1st for handcycles and set a record on the new course of 1:13:02. March has mostly been a focus on training and increasing fitness for the upcoming World cups. The first two world cups will be held in Italy and Belgium at...

Me and fellow Team PossAbilities racer Travis Gaertner The 2023 race season is upon us and the first race of the season is a good one. Valley of the Sun stage race is the first race for me this season held in sunny Phoenix Arizona. I'm always very excited to do this race and it's also a great way to gage how good fitness is this early in the season. It's a great...

U.S. Paracycling National Team Camp

It's a new year which means a new racing season is upon us. It seems like at the start of every season brings new hopes and goals. Every year I want to learn more, train more, race more, and grow more as an athlete. This year is no different for me. Now that I've quit working part time and will be focusing more on training, I am hoping this extra time will take...

World Cup 1 Ostend Belgium

The world cups are back and this year will be my second year attending this event and I was hoping more experience would come with better results. The first world cup would be held in Ostende Belgium which was primarily a flat course and suits what I do best which is flat and fast time trials. Last year at this event I had my best race ever as far as a...

2022 Redlands Classic

Finally after a 2 year hiatus because of covid the Redlands Classic race was a full go for 2022. Being that this is the only race that my family and friends can see me race in I was so happy to be racing in Redlands again. Also the handcycle portion of this race is made possible by Team PossAbilities so i always want a put on a good showing for my sponsor. For me...
