A Boulder native, Pearce set the US hour record in 1995 riding for GS Ciao (then sponsored by Taya Chain) in Colorado Springs. He rode 50.191km and set the 10km, 20km and 50km records along the way. A year later he turned professional with Shaklee and rode to over 125 victories in his career in road, cyclocross, track and MTB events. He finished 14th in the Olympic points race in 2004 and won the track world cup overall in 2003 (points race). Pearce stopped racing in 2005 to take a job as USA Cycling Track Endurance Coach, where he was responsible for all international team selection and training. In 2007 he returned to racing full time. He still lives in Boulder with his wife and daughter, and now runs a coaching business.
