Meet the Athlete

Robbie got started biking when he lived in Chicago at about age four. Neighborhood kids were biking on the sidewalk without training wheels and he decided he could do that. All of a sudden, to his parents’ amazement, he took off without any help. Eventually, he got into competitive sports through swimming. He exclusively swam, until he discovered triathlons, through his dad. He began racing Xterra (swim, mountain bike, trail run) Triathlons following in his dad’s footsteps. At the same time, he was competing in swimming and triathlons, he was also mountain biking for cross-training. It wasn’t until his first year of high school that he began racing mountain bikes through his high school league. After some success at racing in the Colorado High School league, he decided to try mountain biking at the national level. He started his first national-level race in Soldier Hollow in 2019 with the help of his parents. He continued on the national circuit with races and USA Cycling Talent ID Camps and the 2019 Mountain Bike National Championships. He managed 2nd place in the Junior UCI category and launched myself into international racing by qualifying for the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships. He was even able to cap off the 2019 season by winning Xterra World Championships for the 15-18 age group.

Growing up, how did youth sports impact who you are today?

I would have never got started in mountain bike racing without the the Colorado High School Cycling League. It provided me a great place to enter the sport and progress. It connected me with future teammates and great competitors.

What is your favorite post-ride meal?

I always enjoy myself a bowl of rice of fried rice with eggs and vegetables with sweet chili sauce after I ride.

What are your pre-race rituals?

Before every race I have a few habits I participate in. When I wake up I shave my face, so I can look clean in race photos. Before my warm-up, I stretch and activate muscles while listening to pump up music.
