Career highlight: 8th in the 2018 Amateur Nationals Criterium. I pulled off my first win as a Cat 1 at the Media Criterium in PA. This summer I finally begin to find confidence in my abilities, training, and experienced based knowledge. My teammate Will and I shared effort and kept the pace just high enough in the winning move. He attacked with 2 laps remaining for the final preem (I leaned over and told him to go for it. He was already planning to!). I followed any chasers wheels until he was caught with one to go. I jumped early into the last turn and took it all the way. Everything came together for a day, and riding aggressive paid off.

Career highlight: Although I didn't actually win the race, my favorite result to date was at the Lake Bluff Criterium, one of the final days of the Intelligentsia Cup in 2017. I bridged solo to a break of 4 within the final 5 laps and once there knew I could ride the short descent on the back half of the course so I attacked the break going into the bell and held them off until the final meters where I got passed to end up 3rd. What adds to the importance of this result was that I had friends and family there to share the experience with me.
First race experience: My first racing experience was racing at the Northbrook Velodrome nearChicago when I was 15 years old on a steel Bianchi Pista I bought while working at a local shop. At thetime, racing wasn't something that took hold of me the way it did when I had my second racingexperience in the Chicago Cross Cup at 20 or 21- also on a steel single speed, coincidentally.
Favorite training road: I live in Asheville, NC so there are no shortage of amazing roads to ride on so thisone isn't easy for me but if I have to choose then I'd pick the Elk Trail climb that connects Elk Mountainto the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's scenic, quiet, curvaceous and just the right grade. It also presents afeeling of exposure which is less common to roads in Western North Carolina than a place like Colorado.
Best post race food: like to start with a banana post race but usually will quickly follow it up with riceand eggs with a bit of soy sauce. Lots of quick sugars, some electrolytes and some protein.
