Danny Houghton – Team Leader
I've been tinkering with bikes since I got a Stingray when I was 9. I competed in my first competitive cycling event, a time trial, in 1974 at the age of 14. over the next 40+ years I raced BMX, road, track, MTB and cyclocross. I have been on lengthy cycle tours and commuted by bicycle in all kinds of weather including hail, freezing rain, ice and snow.
I have worked the bicycle industry in wholesale, retail and on the road with the pros.
I have been building custom wheels since 1978, worked as a mechanic at several Portland area bike stores and was service manager at one store for 13 years. I have worked neutral support at national and local races including Cascade Cycling Classic, Mt Hood Stage Race and Elkhorn. I have been chief mechanic for professional cycling teams in charge of other mechanics, maintaining team vehicles, bikes, parts inventory, getting it all to the race on time in perfect condition and then riding in the team car with spare wheels, bikes and water. I have worked NRC races all over the United States including “Philly week”, San Francisco Grand Prix, Sea Otter and even Vuelta Cyclista El Salvador. I have assembled, washed and tuned bikes in host garages, alleys, hotel parking lots and on the street out of the team truck in good weather and bad. I have even made adjustments leaning out the window of a car at 25 mph on a gravel road.
