Jason started racing bikes after moving to the DC area in 1997. Ken Bell hired Jason to work part time for his budding tradeshow company but part of the workday (or night in this case) was fitting in a break to ride mountain bikes. Jason soon began racing and meeting elite professional racers. The world of cycling had a profound effect on Jason and soon he was traveling around the world filming America’s best mountain bikers. The industry contacts he made while filming “Off Road To Athens” led to the formation of GFK – Gripped Films Kenda race team, founded in 2007.
Jason added road racing to the mix and not long after Cyclocross. He manages Gripped Films and Gripped Racing. When he’s not on a bike you can find him kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, fishing, snowboarding or … well just about anything outdoors.
