HOMETOWN | Lynnfield, MA
BIO | Full enduro mountain biker, but I love it all really! Not afraid of a good climb, or spandex, and I’m hoping to spend more time at the pump track this season.
BIKES | Niner ROS9 singlespeed or 1×12, Ibis Hakkalugi Disc for gravel and dirt road riding, and a Scott Addict for pavement. I’ve ridden 3 versions of the Specialized Stumpjumper over the past 7 or 8 years and I’m in the market for a new trail bike. Perhaps an Ibis HD4, Ripley, or Ripmo?!
WHY DO YOU LOVE OLYMPIC BIKE SHOP? Too many reasons to count… Olympic has offered so much support and guidance throughout the years. I truly believe their customer service trumps that of all others. All the employees are helpful, friendly, funny, AND fun to ride with. Sam Wagner is a mechanical God, and whether it’s a pre-season, mid-season, or pre-race tune, he always dials everything in perfectly. The Olympic back shop also offers the quickest turnaround on fixes, so you’re spending the most time possible on the trails. Lastly, Peter and John are incredibly community minded, and make an effort to be connected with local events and people.
FUN FACTS | I love racing the Downieville Classic on my singlespeed. I’m going to be a new Mom this June!
All Mountain Singlespeed | Racers compete in both the Point to Point Cross Country and the Downieville Downhill, on the SAME bike. Riders must choose their weapons wisely; a bike that climbs efficiently, descends with precision, and can handle a high-speed beat down for 46 miles on the way to victory.
