The Beginning of the beginning (1988)
I have been a WISPORT member since Jim started it in 88/89. WISPORT gave me an opportunity to race without the USCF requirements as well as the unwelcome attitude toward an older rider. My first race at age 44. Today USA Cycling has changed for the better, but still does not have age groups on a regular basis which accommodate older racers as does WISPORT. WISPORT allows for great camaraderie, before, during and after the race. I have made many friends through WISPORT. WISPORT allows me to play and have fun competing. WISPORT has been the "push" to keep riding. My average miles for 26 years is 5000 miles per year. WISPORT says to all KEEP PEDALING, as in life and on the bike, you only fall off if you stop pedaling.

I started racing because I had taken up bike riding as a way to stay active with cardio due to the fact that I had knee pain that would not allow me to run. I found out about WISPORT and bike racing at the first Flambeau 40. Due to my competitive nature I dove into Bike racing headfirst and have never looked back. WISPORT means everything to me. I cannot imagine not racing in the series.
