In addition to racing, Meg is the lead instructor for the Alpenrose Track Development classes. She has served on OBRA’s board of directors for the past 9 years.

He carries his passion for cycling, along with his organizational and management skills into Junior Development. In 2009 John created the OBRA Junior Cyclocross Series that has helped lift Oregon up to the highest junior participation levels in the country.

John continues to provide administrative leadership to both the Junior and High School CX series, and is working with OBRA to extend the model into other disciplines. 2015 marks John’s 6th year coaching a Junior Cycling team. He was a co-founder and vice president of the Willamette Valley Cycling team.
