At Moots for 20 years…been in Steamboat Springs for 25 years (the longest he’s ever lived anywhere)…hometown – Earth. Jon traveled as a military kid for a large part of his youth…telemark skier and Nordic dork…came to Steamboat for the pursuit of mountain biking and all things that go along with mountains…not sure what his first bike was – “It had two wheels and I was hooked.”…current bicycles include: Moots MX RSL, Moots Vamoots RSL, Moots Psychlo X RSL, Moots Psychlo X, and a Schwinn tandem from the early 70’s…favorite Steamboat Springs rides are a cyclocross tour of town (not on any map) and Emerald Mountain with his kids…way too many favorites outside of the Yampa Valley to list however, Roger Williams Park in Providence, RI is the best CX venue in the US…Dream cycling trip is touring the Netherlands with his family in the summer (oh those canal roads and tulips…)…Jon admires Sven Nys – “He IS the master.”…espresso + oatmeal before a ride, after, a giant burrito…when not on one of his bikes, Jon is thinking about how to get out on a ride…Jon credits his parents for introducing him to cycling – “They taught me how to ride and also took me to BMX races growing up.”
