Mike has been riding bikes for as long as he can remember. It started with his Dad getting his brother and him girls bikes that he painted blue and put BMX handlebars on. John, nor he knew any better. They learned to ride on those bikes. More importantly, he learned the basic bike skills he needed to keep him off the ground - like jumpng curbs, endos, bunny hops, skidding, etc. He graduated from the girls bike to a true BMX bike - a steel Mag-wheeled Huffy. With that bike he learned to tear a bike apart and put it back together.
The next phase was mountain bikes. He and his brother had the first MTB bikes in the neighborhood. He went through a Diamond Back, Haro and a GT Mtn bike. He raced the GT occasionally through college. His focus was on lacrosse until my early 30's when he realized I couldn't keep up any longer. He was in San Diego and would see large groups of cyclists on Saturdays so he decided to hang the 'stick' up and get a road bike with the idea of doing some triathlons. He bought a Lemond Buenes Aires and started riding. This lead to me into triathlons and getting a Felt Time Trial bike. He completed Ironman Coure d'Alene in 2004. That was kind of the end of his 'Tri' career. After that he focused on just riding and started Road Racing.
He currently is a Cat 3 road and Cat 2 Mountain Bike racer. He can hang pretty tough in most Cat 3 races and run real strong in the mtn. bike races. He also dabbled in Cyclocross races. It's all about having fun.
