I have raced for Kona for 16 years and will be part of the Kona Adventure team in 2019. I have been working full time in logging for the past two years and now and strive to keep the bike mileage up anyway I can - including binging on weekends and adventures with Barry and the team. I'm actively involved in the cycling community in my hometown of Sechelt, helping to organize The Coaster XC race and tackling new trail building projects. It’s hard to stay cool the older you get.
