It is always fun when you finally figure out something new. In my case, it was during my last cyclocross race when I finally learned how to 'leap' back on the bike after barriers. And even better when someone captures the event on camera!
I am a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UC Santa Barbara. My research is in the area of MEMS (more at www.engr.ucsb.edu/~tmems), and my hobbies are all things dog (I have 2 setters) and my newly found passion for bike racing!
