All about Dr. Josh

I grew up as most kids do riding bikes all over the neighborhood gaining inspiration from Cru and his boys in the movie "RAD". 

I started racing BMX bikes until my bike was stolen and put an end to that hobby due to lack of funds.  I then moved on to road bikes and after one year of riding stairs and stuff on the campus of Texas A&M, I decided the Centurion road bike should probably give way to a mountain bike. 

I traded my road bike for a Mongoose Rockadile hardtail with no front suspension and rode the heck out of it.  I finally decided I would swap in a set of RockShox Judy XC forks and was happy with that.  Then comes in NB and the Land Rover addiction. 

NB and I spent many hours building our rigs to our liking, and many other things as well.  On a trip to Moab in the Land Rovers, we took a day and rode part of the Slickrock trail.  After that ride, I realized my headtube had cracked, and it was spiraling down around the top tube weld.  We are still working on getting that frame welded up, so for now I am riding a Gary Fisher Joshua Z that shaggy let me borrow a couple of years ago when I moved to California. 

NB and I then decided Adventure motorcycling was the direction we wanted to head, and I bought a KLR, and he bought the F650.  Needless to say, we have spent some time together, and it was a natural transition to Adventure Racing. 

After the first race (even though I was still so out of shape) we knew we wanted to continue running, riding, paddling, etc. so here we go...
