My family and I moved back to the seacoast in February of 2010, I was born and raised here.
Before reconnecting with my roots, I lived in Colorado Springs for 2 years, and most recently in Seattle for 13. It was in Colorado that I discovered mountain biking and road riding, and Seattle where I discovered my competitive streak. I started mountain bike racing when I moved to Seattle and was racing at Expert level by my third year. I spent many training hours on my road bike so I decided to join a team and give road racing a try too. I am currently ranked as a Category 3 but haven't competed in a road race since the birth of my first child in 2004. (Except for a time trail here and there.)
I started cyclocross racing in 2002 and it's the one cycling event I continue to compete in. It's fun, challenging and fast! While in Seattle I worked for Craig Undum at Cycle University. CycleU is a group of coaches who provide instruction for all things related to bike riding and racing. I worked for Craig for 4 years and taught skills clinics for road and cyclocross and lead indoor cycling workouts. I am excited to share my enthusiasm and knowledge through Gus' to the seacoast cycling community.
Here at Gus' you'll find me working in the shop, leading road rides and teaching skills clinics.
