Jared is a cat 5 cyclist who began his racing career a mere 4 weeks ago. A corporal in the United States Marine Corps, Jared fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan during his service. In Afghanistan during the summer of 2009, Jared’s vehicle was directly hit by IEDs on two separate occasions earning him two Purple Hearts. Jared began cycling as part of his rehab for the wounds he sustained in the blasts and has fallen in love with the sport. He is very excited to race as a member of the Jimenez Velo Sport team this season.
