Bio:

When Z was just a pup he rode his BMX bike all over the place. But he never mastered the "kick out" "table top" or "doubles" like the other cool dogs so he put his tail between his legs and took up running and chasing girls. Years later when he became an adult dog he bought his first mountain bike. It was a 1991 Dorado Sherpa. Z-dog quickly became infatuated with his new bike and the whole cycling scene. In '95 he got a job as a part time sales guy at a bike shop. Two years later he was managing the place and racing mountain, cross, and road 40-50 times a year! Soon the credit card debt was out of control and his bike collection soared to 18 bikes (all for a different purpose of course). Retail burnout caused him to leave the shop, but he's still loosely tied to the industry making bike racks for buses. Present day sees this ol' dog with just 10 bikes and primarily racing in the Masters fields on the road. 2005 was the first year in a decade that Z didn't race and hardly even rode. The time was spent trying to heal a chronic back problem. Unfortunately, it didn't really work, but he's out on the road again. The occasional mountain bike and track race still happens and the dog even ventured into the world of Triathlon's last summer doing 3 sprint distance events. Born with "anti-cycling genetics" Z has never excelled at this sport taking a decade to upgrade to Cat 3. He is now content being the slow dog all winter and spring and then having a rare summer day in top form when he gets asked by the fast guys, "Where'd ya get your 'juice'?" And, "Man, who's your doctor?"  Most of all he enjoys riding/working for his teammates that have a shot at the podium!
