At 57, Dave is a longtime mountain bike rider of 35 years. He was part of the racing scene as a Team GT rider in the late ’80s to early ‘90s. Currently, he mostly rides outside of racing; adventure type rides in remote places and freeriding on the local trails in Orange County, California. Dave's favorite type of riding is remote, steep, narrow and bushwhacky singletrack. His specialty is leading rides that push people past their comfort zone. Over the years he has hosted numerous grassroots style races and rides as part of that specialty. Beyond cycling, Dave has a long history of mountain sports including rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, dirt bike riding, and hiking.
