What inspired you to ride?

A good friend of mine in high school bought road bike to ride, which got me interested. Soon after, a teacher started a cycling club and that is where I started to get serious about cycling.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

I struggled with a few less than stellar years in terms of results before finding a great coach and bouncing back with a really successful season.

Favorite cheat meal?

A good donut always hits the spot on a hard ride.

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

Being form Canada, nothing beats a nice crisp local BC apple along with a slice of sharp cheddar.

Tip for staying healthy?

Find an activity that you really enjoy and can easily integrate into your life. If you can do that, then you will be most likely to stick with it!

What motivates you to ride?

I'm always motivated to keep challenging myself and make improvements. Racing in the WorldTour is the ultimate goal so that is always something that keeps driving me forward.
