Growing up Kurt was a jack of all trades, focusing mostly on fun; local BMX racing, some old school mountain biking on fully rigid steel frames getting lost in the woods, some local road biking, windsurfing all around New England, skiing, and mixed in, there was the competitive outlet of fencing through high school and college. Upon graduation from college, Kurt got back into mountain biking mostly on the North Shore of MA or along some coastal haunts in CT, just for fun. In 2000, Kurt was convinced to do his first triathlon, a sprint distance race that took place every Thursday night in Nahant. He was immediately hooked! And from there, the rest is history, with races of every distance from sprint to Ironman under his competitive belt!
Kurt has competed and trained athletes in all distances of triathlon from sprint to Ironman, has raced on the road for about 10 years, but his passion for dirt has never wavered. As a triathlete competing in Xterra races, mountain biking and cyclocross, that’s where he is most at home. Currently a Cat 2 XC mountain bike racer and a Cat 3 Master’s cyclocross racer, you can usually recognize him by the dirty smile on his face at the end of every race. In addition to racing, Kurt has actively managed and developed Comprehensive Racing, a multisport, running and cycling team, since 2001.
