“People are quick to under value your worth so you have to have confidence in what you are doing and continue to draw something positive about your experiences.”
What inspired you to ride?
As a kid bikes gave me the freedom to explore.
Racing obstacle you overcame?
Two years into my pro career I had to sit out an entire season with chronic fatigue syndrome. It was very difficult coming back with all of the strength I had lost.
Favorite cheat meal?
My favorite is spicy Italian sausage sautéed until crispy and thrown into an arrabbiata tomato sauce and al dente pasta. The on the side, a loaf of hot bread with salted butter.
Favorite healthy meal or snack?
Use a rice cooker for oatmeal and set the delay timer on all of your ingredients. It saves a lot of morning prep work and you get to sleep in a few extra minutes!
Tip for staying healthy?
Shop often and plan. It's easy to fall into bad eating habits when you are unprepared.
