Name: Jason Fackler
Location: Cardiff, CA
Disciplines/ Current Categories: CX/4, MTB, Road/4
Goals for the upcoming season: Get CX upgrade in the first few races of the season. But overall get my three this season and have fun.
First Race Story: 12 Hours of Temecula in November of 2006. Slept in the back of my 4-Runner the night before and almost froze to death. I was on a three man team with a guy who was an experienced racer and a former Olympic skier who was three times my age (and 100% faster). Getting screamed at by a Norwegian guy at ten o’clock at night for being slow is a hoot.
1st Bicycle: He-Man Huffy circa 1984. 1st “real” bike was a Redline 420 BMX rig.
Current bikes: CX/Focus Mares, MTB/Felt 29er, Road/Focus Izalco (Campy) and Steel Masi Single Speed.
Favorite Bicycle story: Heft on Wheels. Not my story, but a good one none the less.
Bicycle superstitions: More of a bad habit, over tightening every single bolt on my bike.
Dumbest thing you've done on a bike: Please refer to first race story.
Special Talents? I was a golf professional for ten long agonizing years.
Strengths: Not giving up.
Final words of wisdom? Don’t think, it’ll only hurt the ballclub.
