I've been in Portland for the past week training and racing with the team. Its been great riding with the other juniors and getting to know each other. Next on the schedule in the team time trial tomorrow which should be hard and fun. We are doing a junior team and seeing if we can win the overall. You can vote for who you think will win over at the cmg junior blog (

Here are some photos of the race last weekend.

Mitchell Ride!!

This past weekend I did one of my favorite rides. We left early Sunday morning and drove to the small town of Mitchell about an hour and a half NE of Bend. There were eleven of us and it was a great group to ride with. The ride is only 66 miles, however you climb over 6,666 feet. It’s the hardest 66 miles that I have ever done. O.B.R.A was going to do a race on this very course earlier in the year however it was cancelled. I think this would be one of the hardest races in Oregon.

It was one of those rides that you will always remember. It was a beautiful day, and the scenery is awesome with the step valleys and canyons. The climbs are long and hard, plus there are few cars out on the roads. Its just a great ride.

Next on the schedule is the rehearsal road race, and following that I will stay the week in P town (Portland) with the Rathe’s and get in so riding with the team.

Good New!

Well I have some good news, my stomach is fine. I have some inflammation in the intestines; however the results for crohn's came back negative. I’m back on a gluten free diet and feeling better.

I did a race a little over a week ago and it went well. Next up is the rehearsal road race up in Woodland Washington. Training has been going good, and I should be riding strong here soon.

My next travel will be back to Kentucky for the world’s trials in mid June. I’ll be heading back with the other juniors on my team Jacob, Marcel, and Austin we are all riding well and should do great. I’m going to be in Portland for a week at the end of this moth to get in some team training and get ready for the team time trial with the other juniors.

I’ll keep you posted
