I am a paracyclist, C3 category (upright bicycle) and current silver medalist in the US Paracycling Road Race and Time Trial 2022. Also past US Paracycling National Champion in Time Trial, Road Race and Criterium from 2021. I plan to keep competing though I am currently the oldest male paracycling competitor in the US! I have a spinal cord injury at C3. Incomplete quadriplegia, but able to walk. I use a Stages dual sided L&R crankarm set on one bike to check my leg differences for power output. I could definitely use at least one more dual sided crankset.
I am a member of the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
