Racing Age: 16 
First off, I'd like to thank Rachel, Ted, and Specialized Bicycles for this opportunity. Since about two years ago, I got my first real road bike. It was a Specialized Allez. Ever since, I've been on a Specialized. 2013 is the first year I've decided to race. So far, I've planned on going to all the Ohio Spring Race Series races and the Races at the Lake. I've only gotten one race in this season at Lake Hope. I took it more as a learning experience because it was my first race ever. I was proud of my 2nd though. Since then, I've decided to step up my training. I try to get on the road any day I can (even when it's freezing) and I've taken off the aero bars to replicate racing. I like to train on hills but I feel that I am a good all-rounder. I'm either running, riding, or in our home gym. I hope all my hard work will pay off.

Who knows, I could be on the pro peloton some day.
