About John

What inspired you to ride?

My brother and the local mountain bike trails. My brother got a mountain bike first, and of course I followed suit. Where I grew up I could ride my mountain bike to the Chattahoochee trails. It was freedom and transportation for me. The rush I get from riding to the top of a big hill and bombing down the other side is still one of my favorite things to do.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

A double fracture of my pelvis in 2007.

Favorite cheat meal?

BBQ Chicken Pizza with my son.

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

Massaman Thai

Tip for staying healthy?

Sweat every day.

What motivates you to ride?

I'm motivated to ride to because I love being outside, being in shape and most of all I love the feeling of winning!
