Year Racing and How you got into cycling: 2; No longer compete on field related sports (i.e soccer) but always enjoyed endurance and anaerobic aspects to training. Like to participate in winter sports and indoor cycling became a way to stay fit. Started to work on and build up my own bikes. Began to get a more in depth perspective into bike racing with greater participation in the training aspect of the sport which prompted me to try my hand at racing. 2014 was the first year that I committed to a racing program and I got hooked. I had raced 1 to 3 races per year for three years prior to that.

Goals for 2015: Top 10, improved race times, multiday stage races completion
