Rider Comments:
I have ridden with jjfox many times over the last couple of years. He is a dream to ride with. He is very strong on the hills and mountains and lightening fast on the flats. He is a very courteous rider, since he always waits for me to crest each hill or mountain. He has great routes around the Laurel Highlands of PA. He is a real gentleman and encouraged me to re-enter the racing scene. He has a very quick wit and an excellent sense of humor, which comes in handy when he's killing you on a mountainous century. I call him a genuine friend and a great man to have as a friend.
