I am honored and excited to be presented this trophy from the owner of Dumonde Tech, Rod Faulkner. They created this trophy to recognize my finishing as the top american in the 2013 Solo Race Across America.  I have used Dumonde tech oils since I started bike racing years ago. Now to get the opportunity to help test new oils and learn more about the roll they play in our performance is incredible. Thank you to Rod and everyone at Dumonde Tech. Also a huge thank you to Urs Koenig from Redpoint coaching the tittle sponsor of my solo Race Across America. And to Bob Brudvik my crew chief for RAAM. Both of them came out to be a part of this special presentation.
