I wouldn’t be able to pursue my dreams in this sport if it weren’t for the help of countless friends and family. I have made many valued friendships through this sport which has given me continued motivation to get out there to train and race day in and day out. Triathlon is by no means cheap when you have to consider the cost of equipment, nutrition, race entries, travel expenses, time investments, etc.
I would like to recognize the following organizations that make me pursuing my goals of racing as a Professional Triathlete possible.
New for 2021 I am part of the BASE Team using all of their nutrition products! I have met many members of the BASE team over the past few years and am excited to meet many more of them in the near future. BASE is super inviting to new and experience athletes alike and if you ha e any questions about their products or joining their team then let me know!
I started working with DT Swiss for the 2020 season and have been incredibly impressed with the quality and build of their wheels. I personally bought my first DT Swiss wheel set for my gravel bike which have gone through their fair share of abuse! For 2020 racing I’ll be rocking wheels from the DT Swiss ARC 1100 line up which leaves no stone unturned when it comes to aerodynamic performance.
Rebekah and I joined Rooted Gypsy Farms shortly after arriving to Grand Junction, CO. Rooted Gypsy provides a weekly box of local meat and produce to members of the community which is always super fresh and delicious! They not only offer food that they have at their own farm, but include foods from other farms that they partner with. It’s been great receiving our weekly box of goodies throughout the season and we’re looking forward to many more deliveries to come. Knowing that the people behind Rooted Gypsy Farms share the same Christian and family values as us has only made us love them more! For 20% off your first box with Rooted Gypsy, just mention me or Rebekah when you sign up.
Epix Gear creates fantastic custom triathlon clothing for racing and training. I’ve worked with them since my time at the University of South Carolina where they produced our racing kits. Both Epix Gear and I have come a long way in the sport since then and they now produce some of the best triathlon gear in the market. Their gear fits well, is comfortable, breathable, affordable, and most importantly looks awesome. If you are looking for a new tri suit or other tri clothing then I wouldn’t hesitate to pick Epix Gear!
Rebekah and I are excited to have worked with Trisha Whittington of Re/Max 4000 in finding out permanent home in Grand Junction, CO. Check out this video to learn more about how our relationship started and why Rebekah and I chose Grand Junction! And if you’re looking for a house then don’t hesitate to reach out.
Speed Hound came on board for 2021 and I’ve been utilizing their Pro Performance recovery system with compression garments for my legs, hips, and arms. It’s been helping my body and muscles recover much better day to day with training, racing, and travel.
I’ve been using Squirt lube for years and am happy to now have them as an official sponsor! Their US headquarters is based just a few miles down the road from me in Grand Junction and have a great presence locally. Combined with being the best wax based lube available along with their amazing cleaning products and barrier balm makes for a perfect fit!
Berk Composites makes some of the best quality and lightest cycling saddles in the world. I’ve been riding the 140mm Dila saddle since the beginning of 2019 and have been loving it! It’s carried me to some fast bike splits by allowing me to get into the best position for me while not adding any unnecessary extra weight.
On race day I switch over to an ICE Friction Tech chain to gain every last watt. They are super fast, last through super rough conditions, and look absolutely awesome!
