"I am 23 years old and I am about to finish my 4th season as a road and track cyclist. In 2012, I decided to start racing after watching Elite US Track Nationals in my home town of Rock Hill, SC and watching the Winter European 6 days (Madison track races) on live stream. It wasn't as easy as just buying a bike and racing...weighing 300 pounds I had some life changes I needed to make for this whole racing thing to happen. The bike changed my life completely and began a whole new life style for me. Currently, I weigh 205 pounds. This year was the first year I began to start traveling internationally and it came with a bit of success, along with starting my first professional 6 day event at Fiorenzuola with American 6 day rider Guy East from Hope Sports. I believe this is only the beginning, as my long term goal is to become a National Champion on the track along with possibly making the Olympic squad for 2020 in Tokyo. I am super excited to become apart of the XX2i family and rock my new favorite racing shades, the France2, and my casual Bermuda1 glasses."
