My favorite rides are crazy long and technical loops, racing comes after riding and exploring for me. The Dakar goes from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and across the Andes in the middle, so it is the longest and most hardcore ride I could think of. For me, it was the perfect challenge. 
During the race, we saw every conceivable condition- from below freezing to 120 degrees, and Klim gear kept me safe and comfortable through every condition. The Dakar is an incredible challenge and I feel so lucky to have gotten to live my dream and finish as top American. Klim was with me, literally, every inch of the way, their gear doesn't just promise performance on paper, it delivers it in the real world. 
When I'm not riding the moto, I love cleaning air filters and doing oil changes (not really!), building stuff, riding my mountain bike, and pretending to be domesticated.
