We continue with our training with our goal in mind to motivate people around you and help them be the best image of themselves regardless of the challenges they face, being an ambassador to possabilties continues to help...

Reflections on the World Championships

The 2022 season has come to a close and I've returned from the 3rd World Cup and World Championships with a 4th and 7th place finish. Despite a fairly serious crash captured by the epic picture shown in this blog, I also came back a much more confident rider than when I left. My Time Trial performances were among the best of my career. I have learned at what point in the race I tend to drift in power output...

The importance of a good coach

Hi guys,  Today I’d like to share something that is often top of my mind: the difference that it makes having a good coach. It’s probably very good on every sport, and life.  With snowboarding, it’s a HUGE part of my improvement —a game changer. My coach, Mancha, is from Portugal and is also their National team’s coach. Honored to have had his company in many snow trips / races.  It means I have a one on one coach most of my rides,...

Grateful for new opportunity!!!

The season has ended with a national championship victory in the time trial and road race in Chattanooga, TN. I am happy with how I performed but wish I had more appropriate gearing with a 12% grade hill on slick pavement. After returning home I was already planning out next season. The new season is many months away but the next two seasons are what counts in selection towards Paris 2024. The current goals for 2023 are to get top...

The Beijing Winter Paralympic Games 2022

(Preface: My post in March simply vanished from the blog; I’m re-doing this since I haven’t shared my Beijing experience. ——————————————————“You only get one life, and I’m fortunate to still have mine.”We did it guys, I am officially a Paralympian:)))It was about 2 weeks of pure magic and fun moments lived in China. Of course, with the nerves & anxiety & expectations that come with racing as well —all expected. The training camp prior to the Games was crucial, and...

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...

Multi Sports Brought Me Here

Hello fellas,I was thinking these past few weeks how I got where I am and how I’m grateful for everything I’ve done, and everyone that help me get here. My trajectory in snowboarding was much shorter than it had been in triathlon, but it was not by chance or out of nowhere. It took work to get there. Just as it took work to get where I got in triathlon, and one thing lead to the other. It takes passion....

U.S. Paracycling National Team

2021 proved to be a great year for me winning 3 national titles and be selected to my first paracycling world championships but there was still one thing left on my list that I had not yet achieved. Ever since I began racing competitively in 2012 one of my main goals was to be a member of the U.S.A. paracycling national team. I've always wanted the chance to represent my country...

Peer Visits

as an athlete it fills me of great joy to know that while I'm doing what I love to do racing I'm impacting the community around me to see that there is not limits to the things you want to do in life. And it gives them hope to know that there's people out there doing remarkable things that sometimes we think we can't do anymore. No matter who you are where you come from we all have a story to...

2022 PossAbilities Triathlon

Hello folks, after a 2 year hiatus because of covid PossAbilities finally had their Annual Triathlon! It felt good to be there supporting those that have given me so much. For the 1st time, I pushed (stroller) my older daughter Stella on a race; and I only did the 5km run instead of the full triathlon.It was great seeing everyone again, and below knee PossAbilities athlete Zimri smoked me this time, I didn’t stand a chance!What I’ll remember the most...
