Riding and racing:
2015 plans:

This year is going to be about rebuilding and learning how to race and ride as a parent of two children.  I was able to use some parental leave (thanks, Belgium!) to make some extra time to train last season.  This year I will have to try to find some form while juggling my work as a solar physicist and my VeloNews race coverage alongside being a good father to my kids.  Training will probably be a lot shorter and higher intensity, but I’ll be chasing bigger adventures on the bike whenever it’s possible.  As usual, my race focus is cyclocross.

Why MOOTS:
“I love the idea that my bike was made by people who care about bikes and have some personal investment in the company and the product.  I love that I have something made in the USA.  And I love how my Moots ride, smooth and fast and able to stand up to the beating they take from Belgian mud and cobbles and everything else I subject them to.”

When not riding:
Usually in the Flemish mud, taking pictures of and writing about cyclocross races for VeloNews.

Fav ride(s):
The Schauinsland climb from Oberrried, Black Forest, Germany and anything on dirt in the Sonian Forest outside of Brussels, Belgium.

Fav food/books/movies/music:
Food: Pizza, of course.
Book: I love many books. “Matterhorn” by Karl Marlantes really blew me away, most recently.
Movie: I really enjoyed Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” recently, but “Back To The Future” has been my favorite for 30 years.
Song: I love a lot of different music.  I don’t have a favorite song, but my three year old son is obsessed with “Ophelia” by The Band and “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk (which he calls the ‘Robot Song’), so I listen to those A LOT.
