Mike's info

I'm a Colorado native, and basically plan on spending the entire summer on two wheels. I'm training hard for long distance technical XC racing, and am always looking for for fellow people who enjoy riding great trails, but also don't mind putting on the Lycra from time to time.

Mike's preferred sports:

Mountain Biking
At this point I can ride just about anything. I prefer earning my turns through epic big mountain landscapes. Favorite trails include Doctor Park, Porcupine Rim, White Ranch, Horsetheif Bench Loop, and Hall Ranch. Since racing the Growler, The Ridge and Rattlesnake may also be favorites.
Running
Nursing a heel injury, but was running 18-20 miles on trail without too many problems. Now I'm happy doing about a 10k if my heel doesn't hurt at the end. Stupid running...

Hiking and Camping
I wan't to go find somewhere where the world is shaped by nature and not humans. Whether that's on top of a peak or in a natural canyon, it doesn't intimidate me. Longest trip to date is 42 miles over 4 days, no resupply.
