Hey it’s Mac!
I have lived in Benton County since 2001. I started building the Truman Lake Mountain Bike Park in 2002, and it opened in 2008.I love to build trails because they connect communities and give people access to nature and outdoor adventure.
I’ve been putting on mountain bike races since 1996. I love how special events give you a reason to go out and clean trails, and they also give the community something to be proud of. The community also benefits from tourism that the trails draw in.
I loved racing mountain bikes, but love helping getting others involved into the sport even more. When I stopped chasing racing dreams and focused on my bike mechanic skills, I got to travel the world and national pro mountain biking circuit. It was a great experience created through a passion for cycling.
Now I really love coaching kids on trails I built, and I get to keep their bikes in good working order. It’s been fun producing multiple State Championship mountain bike riders.
I also enjoy throwing disc golf on the two beautiful courses we have in Warsaw.
