Rider: Michael Boyco 

Age: 27
Profession:
Developmental Chemist Engineer
Class:
Cat 2/Sport 19-29
Bike:
Scott Scale 710

After many years spent as a roadie, a new job and new town forced me to turn my cycling addiction in a new direction. I enjoy mountain bike racing in all its forms, from epic death-march marathons to leg crushing cross country. A desire for something more satisfying for the soul will see me attempt the Huracan 300 as well as return to ORAMM and Fool’s Gold. I also hope to make a bigger splash in the 2014 Florida State XC series.
