Personal: Throughout his elementary and middle school years he flew all over the nation with his dad for BMX nationals...At 12 years old, he started racing mountain and road alongside BMX...In 2019, he decided to focus on mountain biking with an eye on Tokyo 2020...His pre-race ritual is to have pancakes and coffee three hours before the start of the race, then he will go back to his hotel room or team trailer to meditate... His older sister Kaylee was also a member of the U.S. National mountain bike team…He writes poetry and makes music…He volunteers at a juvenile hall helping teach a creative writing program…When he was ten he fractured his skull in a BMX crash and lost his hearing permanently in his left ear…He is a huge Lakers fan and rarely misses a game.
