It turns out, the rider's name is Dave Friedman and he was recently featured on a podcast from Inside the Athletic Grind. Dave, a Pittsburgh area rider, is one of three brothers, including Olympian an recently retired professional rider Mike Friedman, and Joel Friedman, who is a former Cat 3 National Champion.
In spite of his family legacy, Dave is relatively new to racing. He has climbed the ranks quickly though and in just two seasons has become a Cat 1 mountain bike racer and is very close to being a Cat 2 road racer.
I hope to see him back on the start line of The Rock Criterium 2015 where he will no doubt leave us with some more memorable racing.
