With Trek Bicycle in my hometown I basically grew up with bikes my entire life. However, the only time I rode them was when I would visit my grandparents about 500 feet down the road and to go fishing near the local river.
I did sports my entire life. As kid I competed in the local pedal powered tractor pulls and in high school I ran cross country and track. It wasn’t until I was 24 that the glory of the bike attracted me. I was hanging out with some high schools friends in Sun Prairie, WI. They were big time commuters and we wanted to meet up with some other friends in Madison. Naturally I assumed we would hop in our cars. WRONG! They gave me a bike and we pedaled. I was never as tired in my life…but I held onto their wheels (though I think they slowed for me). At that point I was hooked. I got myself a hybrid bike and started commuting. A year later I upgraded to a road bike and wanted to get into the racing scene. The rest is history.
My name is Badger and I like to party and SPRINT!
