What inspired you to ride?

It was my parents that first got me on a bike when I was really young, but I got into racing through a friend in high school.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

I think just deciding to go for it and committing. For myself that commitment involved dropping out college, which was really tough.

Favorite cheat meal?

Ice cream.

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

I don't do a lot of real cooking recipes out of laziness, but I do make a lot of salads, which involves any and every raw vegetable you happen to be in the mood for.

Tip for staying healthy?

Exercise is important, but I think a lot of people neglect their diet. Stay away from processed foods and try to limit refined carbohydrates and sugar, especially when not exercising.

What motivates you to ride?

I am motivated by my love of the sport and competition in general. When times are tough I can get a little extra motivation by thinking back on all the hard work and sacrifices I've made over the years.
