This outstanding cyclist developed his riding skills as a member of his high school cycling team and the Thunder Bay Cycling Club, going on to represent his hometown and his country with distinction at racing competitions around the world.

The overall cadet division winner at the 1982 Ontario Provincial Cycling championships, he went on to win the Thunder Bay Championship junior title and earn a second place showing in the senior event, and placed a close second in the junior 50km event in the Kenora Grand Prix, a race featuring riders from across Canada and the US.

Named to the 1983 Ontario Junior Road Cycling Team, he collected a number of victories including the Ontario Junior Time Trial title, the Junior Men's Team Time Trial gold medal at the Canadian Road Cycling Championships, and the 4000m Team Pursuit title at the National Track Championships.

Named captain of the Junior National team in 1984, he represented his country with distinction in races held in the US and throughout Europe, earning various stage victories competing against the finest cyclists in the world. At the Junior World Championships, he helped the Canadian team earn a 19th place finish out of 45 countries. Moving up to the senior team in 1985, he continued his development, earning a number of top-5 finishes.

As the 1986 Provincial Road Cycling champion in the Men's 40km Time Trial event, he competed in the Coors Canada Cup tour, winning the 50km Road event in the Tour of Manitoba and the King of the Hill Road event in the Niagara Classic, and earned a spot on the Canadian team that competed at the World Championships.

As a member of the 1987 National cycling 'A' Team, he put in a number of top-5 finishes including a 4th place showing in the highly competitive Foster's race in Toronto and competed at the World Championships in Vienna. In 1988, he became an Olympian, earning a spot on the Canadian Time Trial team for the Seoul Games.
