I have been on a bike since I first got one at age 12. I raced for the first time in 1994 on a steel bike down tube (non-indexed) shifters. I tried cross country bike and downhill bike but then tried the track for the first time in 2007 and got hooked. I went on to win 3 national titles in 2010, sprint, keirin and kilo in the masters 30-39 category. Whatever happens in my life, a bike is never too far. It’s not all about racing either.
