Matti grew up in Wisconsin on the Packers, casserole, and cross country skiing. He took his skinny skis with him to St. Olaf College and spent 4 years traveling the midwest racing circuit while studying biology and exercise physiology. Diploma in hand, he headed West towards the mountains, jumped in his first bike race and has been shaving his legs ever since.
