Cycling Achievements: I got 4th place in my very first bike race, 2011 sugar bottom scramble, ever since I have been hooked. One of the craziest events happened to me at the Iowa City Road Race in 2013. On the final lap a person crashed into me causing my rear derailleur hanger to break. I was out of the race but the individual TT was still later that afternoon. My bike would not shift, so with the help of a few friends we made my road bike a single speed. 53x14. I got 3rd place on a 13 mile ITT. I WAS HAPPY. The past two years I have raced road collegiately as well as USAC. I have never won a race, but I have gotten 3rd 7 times! My best results on the road are 3rd place 2 Iowa State RR Cat 4 and3rd Place Cat 4 2013 Quad Cities Criterium.
