Crohn’s Disease patient who started serious road riding in July 2005 as a way to aid recovery and get in shape. Did first century ride the next month, unsupported and “by accident.”
Had a paper route and rode my bike all over during school, High School & College. Then got into riding railtrails (I`m a railroad history buff). Got my first road/racing bike as a 10th anniversary present and got into racing to fulfill a long-time dream.
Started racing May 2006 and participating in the East Hartford Criterium Training Series.
To highlight the health and social benefits of cycling, especially for those overcoming illness. Would also like to develop advanced racing skills and become more competitive.
