Matson is a second generation cyclist. His older brother biked in 2007 so he naturally needs to follow up with his own coast to coast run. You can always count on Matson to make the group laugh and at the end of the day he’ll be the first person to be looking for a swimming pool or trying to get a game of basketball.
Matson brings a decent amount previous experience to the trip. He traveled through Central America last summer and sailed at BSA’s seabase the summer before. That combined with the threat of taunting from his old brother, Matson is a shoe in for a successful ride.
