2011 Team Announcement- MOOTS!

For 2011 I will be part of the Grass Moots Racing Team. I've been a Moots fan since I first saw the YBB in Mountain Bike Action in 1997, and I've always wanted to be on a grassroots factory race squad, so being able to race for Moots is really a dream come true. With opportunity comes responsibility...and I better be in shape when the season starts so I don't embarass myself.

With the new year comes a new bike, and I'll be adding a Mooto X RSL 29er to the stable when they start shipping in March. I'll be holding onto the YBB and will keep riding that too, but it will be great to have different bike options to suit different courses.


  1. Sweet, I need to order up some of the new clothing too!

    Skate skiing is kicking me back in to pseudo shape already!

  2. The design is subtle, which I think is awesome. It also looks dope with my preferred white helmet and white RXL shoes.

    Fortunately I feel like I've started to get my ski groove back and was able to get out for 90 minutes yesterday.

    I'll post some pictures and details of my winter workouts in the upcoming weeks.

    Believe it or not, I'm digging winter right now, and I think a lot of it has to do with being really psyched about racing in 2011.

  3. I really need to talk and plan some events out. Right now 2011 is an open slate and I need to find some clarity, Thinking about a winter triathlon for fun. Signed on to do a American Cancer Society ski fund raiser at Trapps. Now to think about bikes in the new year.
