“I love to see the world on my bike and racing motivates me to be the best I can be at any given moment.”
Sprinting, Time Trials
What inspired you to ride?
Both my older sisters had been cyclists, so I was pretty familiar with the cycling community and sport. I loved to be outside and loved the speed of having wheels underneath me.
Racing obstacle you overcame?
In the months leading up to Rio, I suffered an injury to my shoulder area that might have jeopardized my ability to ride in the summer Olympics. While I was not able to rectify the damage, which eventually required surgery, I was able to manage my training and remain tough mentally and physically.
Favorite cheat meal?
Burger and fries.
Favorite healthy meal or snack?
Smoothies. My latest creation is spinach, cherry/berry mix, almond butter, almond milk and plain yogurt.
Tip for staying healthy?
Get outside and everything in moderation.
What motivates you to ride?
