From – Silver City, NM

Started mountain biking in with grade as part of the high school team racing in the Arizona NICA league.  The First year they did not let me race I could only practice with the team. I grew to love the sport and began racing races outside of the high school league on mountain bikes and road. I am a senior this year and will be racing at the Varsity level.
