Mountain Bike Season Wrap-Up: Breaking out and Reaching Higher

Taking the UET Series Win
The mountain bike season has been a brilliant one. It started in Arizona, took me to California, twice, Idaho, twice and on a tour of Oregon.

I raced well throughout the season, and really nailed my priority races. I won the USA Cycling UET series, stood on the podium at Marathon Mountain Bike Nationals, chugged my way to third place at Blitz 2 The Barrel, and won the High Cascade 100, Pickett's Charge, and the Cascade Gran Fondo.

I was surrounded and supported by an overwhelming community of friends, family and amazing sponsors. A special thanks goes out to Erik Eastland, All Access Racing, Giant Bicycles, CLIF Bar & Company, Smith Optics, Sunnyside Sports, and of course, my #1, Ben.
