Dave has been riding mountain bikes for a long time; he never had an interest in racing until his wife introduced him to Chuy, who had been racing cyclocross for a few years.
Dave caught the fever and the rest is history. He has certainty had growing pains: there was a period of time when he couldn’t get through a race (or a ride) without a crash. It was almost expected. Luckily, those days are behind him and he can now focus on keeping up with those 50+ cat 2 guys, they just keep getting faster!
Dave has had several podium finishes in both cross-country mountain bike races, and cyclocross races, including a victory at Balboa Park in San Diego.
