CHAIR OF TRAILS DEVELOPMENT & ADVOCACY

Jamie gained a love of biking when he was young, riding bikes around the rural Kentucky roads with his dad and brother.  When he was introduced to mountain biking after dental school he truly had found his passion.  Since then, he’s ridden mountain bikes, road bikes and single speed mountain bikes continuously looking for new challenges.  He’s completed several LOTOJA races, road races, criteriums, The Leadville 100, Park City Point to Point, 24 hour relays, 12 hour relays ICUP races and even managed to get on the occasional podium. 

Jamie also serves as Chairman of the Draper City Parks Trails and Recreation Committee which helps to build and maintain the trails in the Corner Canyon Regional Park.  His biggest accomplishment on that committee was developing the idea and overseeing construction of the “Rush Trail” which is a bikes only flow trail in the canyon.

In 2012, his wife Whitney, also an avid cyclist, started the mountain bike team at Corner Canyon H.S. and Jamie became one of her assistant coaches. That team has had the title of "The largest NICA team in the country" since its inception. Jamie and his wife agree that it’s the most rewarding thing they have ever done on bikes.  “It’s so amazing to see the change in these kids and we are so grateful to be a small part of that change”.   They have 2 daughters that have been on their team and 2 sons who are already shredding the trails in preparation for their high school careers.  Jamie is honored to have been asked to serve on the Utah League Board of Directors and looks forward to doing whatever he can to help put more kids on bikes and introduce them to a lifelong sport.

Jamie earned his Dental degree at the University of Kentucky and subsequently received his Specialty Certificate in Endodontics from Boston University.  He supports his bike habit and garage bike shop as the owner of Redwood Endodontics
