Racing mountain bikes for few years at professional level played an important role in my life. Learning about dedication, hard work, injuries and yourself. Overcoming your fears and go above and beyond your abilities. After few crashes that were hard on my body I decided to stop racing at World Cup level and just enjoy riding with friends. Riding will always be part of my life, it's something I absolutely love, it's a lifestyle and makes me the most happy. My bikes take me to places that I wouldn't normally go. Riding with friends and still challenging myself keeps me in good shape technically and mentally which keeps me satisfied. I did realized I have more fun riding with friends as the pressure is not there than racing but I do miss it sometimes. I do few races to have purpose of training. Last year I raced DH at Sea otter which is always fun race to do, see my old friends and be competitive with my self.
Two years ago I started to work with a professional road cycling teams as a soigneur and that give's me a different outlook on life and appreciation. It's a hard work but also very rewarding. It gives me opportunity to stay in the biking community, still ride my bike and meet cool people.
Being ambassador for Lezyne is something I am very thankful for. Their support and love is outstanding. Even though I am not racing as much they still support me with their amazing products. I love everything I have, I am like a collector of tools. I was never interested in tools and fixing my bike ( I am not really good at it) I would rather be doing my make up but to be honest design and quality and easy handling of Lezyne tools makes me want to work on my bike. It's actually pretty simple. Thank you to Lezyne for everything, their hospitality, professionalism and beautiful products.
