From Aspen, CO, I have lived and trained in Sun Valley, Idaho, Park City, Utah and Hanover, New Hampshire. I race for Ski and Snowboard Club Vail along with Team Madshus. Named to the US Ski Team in 2008 as a junior skier, I worked my way up the development pipeline.
My breakthrough came in 2012 with my first National Championship win and a podium at the Under-23 World Championships. I also had success that year at the international senior level with my first top-30 on the World Cup. During the 2013-14 Olympic Season, I won the third and final stage of the Opening World Cup Tour in Kuusamo, Finland, the first American male since 1983 to win at the World Cup level. I followed it up with the fastest time of the day at the queen stage of the Tour de Ski. At the Olympic Games in Sochi, I skied with the front of the pack for 48 out of 50 kilometers before finishing in 24th place.
I faced numerous setbacks after the 2014 Olympics. In the first race of the 2015 World Championship season, I broke my fibula in a crash in the final kilometers, missing the majority of the season. Thanks to an incredible medical team lead by Dr. Thomas Clanton, I made it back to compete in the Falun 2015 World Championships at the end of February. I rebuilt my training and fitness during the 2015-16 World Cup Season.
Wanting to take the next step, I upped my training by 40% in the summer of 2016. This additional training backfired, and I was over-trained and sick for the majority of the 2016-17 season.
I got back on track during the summer of 2017 and qualified for my second Olympics at the 2018 Games in South Korea.
