In 2008 he completed the Angeles Crest 100-mile endurance run, which was a life changing experience! After a two-year break from cycling to run in the ultra world, the desire to get back on the bike and race returned, which lead him to complete the Leadville “Race Across the Sky” 100-mile mountain bike race in 2012. He has since been racing criteriums and cyclocross as a Cat 3 in the Masters 35+ category.
