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.
