Shayne began his athletic career as a cross-country and middle distance runner competing in many Massachusetts State Meets as well as New England All State Meets. His specialties for running included the 5k, 1 mile, 1000m, 800m, and 4x400m relay team.

In college, Shayne transitioned to triathlon and competed in elite sprint and Olympic distances. Triathlon is where he really found his passion for cycling and within a few years he became a fulltime racing cyclist. Shayne began bicycle road racing in 2011 and competes as a Cat 3 in both road racing and cyclocross.  He races for Comprehensive Racing, based in Salem, MA.

In 2012 he joined forces with the North Shore’s premier training facility, B&S Fitness Companies in Salem, MA. There he created and launched P2, an indoor coached computraining program.

Since he was passionate about the sport and wanted to help others realize their cycling and athletic goals, he began to study for his USA Cycling coach exam. He passed the level 3 exam in 2012 and his level 2 exam in 2013. Since then he has helped many people attain their goals whether it be upgrading racing categories, finishing their first century, or completing their first organized bike ride!
