Larsen raced alongside Lance Armstrong on Team Motorola in the early ’90s, competing in events around the world, including the Giro d’Italia. Then, he moved onto mountain biking, and in 1998 and 2000 won the NORBA National Cross-Country title.

At Sea Otter, his son Massimo was like "you have a shoe named after you," but I was like "hey, your dad has two tires named after you and your sister!" (The Maxxis' Larsen TT is called TT after Larsen's daughter Amalia, while the Maxxis Mimo is the nickname for his son Massimo)
