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.
I started rocking TriRig’s Omni bike during the 2019 season and have been loving it! I’ve not only recorded my fastest bike splits to date, but have been more comfortable doing it. They have thoroughly thought out anything a high performing triathlete would need and put it into practice on the Omni, making for a amazingly fast bike that is user friendly and super easy to wrench on. TriRig also sells many accessories separate from their Omni bike, including aerobars, aero skewers, aero brakes, and a ton more. All of their products show their attention to detail and practicality. Let me know if you have any questions about Omni or any other of their products!
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.
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.
For 2021 I am joining the BASE Performance team and will be using all of their nutrition products for training and racing. They have an electric team that I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing at many races in the past years. Their nutritional products have also gotten me out of a few pickles in the past in critical situations, especially their BASE electrolyte salt vials! I’m very excited to dial in my nutritional race plan using BASE products and join their team at races and training camps in the near future!
I’ve been using Squirt lube for the past 5 years on every bike I’ve owned. Their lube is shown to be one of the fastest and longest lasting options on the market. And since it’s wax based there is no need to degrease between applications. I’m happy to be adding the rest of Squirt’s products to my routine including their bike wash, tire sealant, and barrier balm.
