My first Fuji was…

a present to myself for getting my first job out of college. One of my good friends owns a bike shop that sells Fujis, and the perfect frame showed up, a Roubaix RC. We spent weeks sourcing components and building it, and it was my race bike for years unti l I updated to an SL Disc.

What kind of impact did cycling have on your life?

I started cycling when I was 13, after watching the Tour de France religiously during the summer. I road biked for years and enjoyed the freedom of exploring the area. Cycling took a backseat during college, but then I stumbled across a Fuji dealer who treated me like family at Beverly Bikes, and I started cycling like mad once again.

Nowadays I ride mostly off - road, exploring the rocky singletracks on my Auric, or training and racing cyclocross on my Altamira 1.1. Cycling got me out of a lot of tough times in the past few years, and even though my riding time varies, I know my Fujis are always there for me, including the 1984 Team Fuji I rebuilt and restored.
