Cycling achievement

I have compiled a fairly comprehensive dossier of achievements in racing while maintaining an executive career and raising a family.  This  includes nearly 100 wins, 5 National Championships (3 gold medals & 2 Best-All-Round titles).  I am a two time USA Cycling 'All American' and was the No.1 ranked Cat 1 criterium rider two years in a row


I started racing on a local team sponsored by Kodak in Washington DC and was mentored by 18 time National Champion Jim Montgomery.  Under Jim's guidance I became a Cat 1 in less than a year.  Soon after this  World TEAM offered me a spot on their semi-pro team which meant racing alongside my mentor Jim, Paul Curley (25-time National Champion), Jason Snow (35+ World Champion), and Brian McDonough (SAAB Professional and multi-time track National Champion).  These guys taught me the ins-and-outs of American racing and I went on to win the Mid-Atlantic BAR, Best All-Round Rider, that year and also set the 25mile individual time trial  record of 50:54.   In 2000-2001  I moved to Lincoln, Massachusetts and raced for CCB, the nation’s No. 1-ranked amateur team at the time.  On CCB I won the New England Pro/Am Criterium Championships in Burlington, VT.  The following year,  I raced for Trek Regional / North East Factory Team and won the Wall Street Crit in Manhattan, NYC and was USA Cycling's No. 1-ranked Cat 1 crit racer in 2002 and 2003. 


From 2004 to 2011, my focus was  building a start-up company but I managed to win another Masters National Crit Championship in 2007 while my training was primarily commuting to work.  In 2011,  I was on the winning six-man team at the RAPHA North American Gentlemen Race (124 miles on-off road).  In 2012 & 2013 I rode for the master's TIME FACTORY Team  in Los Angeles, CA and won the New England Masters Criterium Championships both years.
