To me LIVESTRONG means taking charge of your destiny and living life to the fullest.

I’ve joined with good friend, colleague, and riding partner Dan Loucks, in his fight with testicular cancer.  Some years ago, Dan and I became friends and coworkers at Synthes.  Cycling has
and continues to be a source of inspiration and motivation for both of us.  We
push each other to ride more miles, more often, in more conditions.  Dan will
battle with cancer over the next short few months and win.  He will come back
stronger than before (even faster on the hills!).  I ride with Dan and Team
Livestrong to show support for my friend, committed to push him through this
rough patch and crest the hill stronger than ever…ride on!
