Jon began his exposure to bike racing as an overweight, out of shape middle ager. In an effort to reclaim his ability to be active, Jon turned to cycling as a means to lose weight and gain fitness. After descending the scale from almost 250 to 180 pounds, he was introduced to the world of bicycle racing. It only took one cyclocross race for Jon to realize his true passion.

In 2009, Jon contacted Mike Birner and began to train under the Sportif program.  Jon states, “My career as an Major Airline Pilot created a very unique situation for my training.  I spend many nights away from my home and bike and my hotel doesn’t always have good equipment to rely on.  Through my own training I have learned the techniques needed to schedule workouts to fit erratic and ever changing schedules.”  In the first season of cyclocross, after beginning his relationship with Sportif Coaching Group, Jon stood on the podium multiple times and enjoyed a very successful year.

“The knowledge I have gained from creating a new, healthy lifestyle and being part of a guided training program has developed my passion for cycling into a desire to help others.  If you bring the determination and commitment, I will provide the organization and support to help you reach your cycling goals.”

Jon and his wife, Tammy, live in Winchester, VA and are the proud parents of three United States Marine Corp sons, one daughter, two grandsons and two granddaughters.
