Personal Notes: Came into cycling during the Greg Lemond era in 1985. Have had two cycling careers, from 1985 to 1994, then drove race cars and returned to cycling in 2001. It has since become my profession with my coaching business. Enjoy traveling and watching my beautiful wife Jen, tear up time trials all around the area.
