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...

Peer Visits

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...

Paralympic Cycling Trials

The time trial for the opportunity to represent Team USA in Tokyo at the Paralympic Games is finally here. It has been a long journey and a lot of my friends and family have sacrificed so much for me to be able to go for this goal.

Hard Work

Whats the reward for hard work? More hard work. After having a pretty successful Swamp Classic and getting some of the rust from the lack of racing knocked off, there is no time for celebrations or for time off. This is not one of the goals from this 2021 year. The ultimate goal is the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Since this is the goal, I need to get back to my training sessions right away. Racing is fun and, honestly, the...
