After about 15 years of riding BMX, Rob started riding road bikes and tried racing for the first time in 2002. Since then, Rob steadily progressed to Cat 2 and now rides with the Alto Velo Elite Team. With Bruce Wilford, Rob will be co-managing the team for the 2008 season after achieving successful goals in 2007. Rob's main objective with cycling is to be competitive and to have fun racing with a solid team. For 2008, Rob wants to get his Cat 1 upgrade and to win some races. Outside of cycling, Rob has a BS and MS degree in Mechanical Engineering with expertise in rocketry and nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
