• What got you into riding?
"Besides a love of the outdoors, an early facination with all things mechanical. And then a re-inspiration when my young son wanted a "real" mountain bike. I remember my first bike quite clearly. I wanted a bike that I could use to take my then baby sister for rides. So, my first bike was more of a trike. But I loved that thing."
• What is the best part of being on the LUX team?
"For me the LUX team is so inspiring, on so many levels: team atmosphere, coaching expertise, camaraderie, & adventure. Bottom line: I get so much more than I give."
