About Me: John came to Alaska from Seattle as a 100% roadie. After a “warm up” winter to develop something resembling technical riding skills, he started to show some promise as a fat bike racer. While John has yet to climb on to the top of the podium of a fat bike race, he promises his big win is right around the corner (if he could just hold his line through that corner). In 2015, John finished his 16 year career at Microsoft to be a full time stay-at-home dad to his son that was born the same year.
