or Rich as he's better known, began his athletic journey riding BMX at a very early age in Southern California. But thanks to his older brother's influences he moved over into the world of mountain biking and found a whole new playground to master.
Since his early years, Rich has completely rooted and grown in the MTB world. He has been a Pivot Factory rider. He's even competed for a championship place in the Big Mountain Enduro Masters class. And seeing a further utilization for his skills founded the Ride Series MTB Skills Clinic and the Young Aspiring Rider Development (YARD) Program.
