Most stitches at once & where: Cycling = blown apart collar bone that required a plate to fix hold it together from over jumping a double in Fort Collins. Non Cycling = my tongue when I was 4 from falling down with my tongue out. Almost bit the whole thing off!
Worst Race: 1998 Collegiate MTB Championships – Reno, Nevada – It was my last collegiate race and I was sitting in 11th place feeling good, and broke my chain! Without a chain tool, I had to DNF my last race in college. 😦 10 years later, I won’t do a ride without a chain tool…
Best Race: 1994 Chapman Hill Climb in Durango – I knew I was hooked!
I race bikes because: I love being outdoors and being in the moment!
