If you could race any cyclist (dead or alive) who would it be and what discipline: Anyone who wants to challenge me to a one block length running sprint.
If you could write the first line for your personal Wikipedia page what would it say: Also known as T-nasty
Toughest race you’ve done and why: Tour of Alberta 2015. The race route was hard but the cold, wet, and unpredictable weather made it one of the most mentally challenging things I’ve done.
What cycling accomplishment are you most proud of? Just in general that I’ve been able to make a “career” out of what I’ve always loved doing. And even though it didn’t go too smoothly for me, racing the Tour of California was pretty amazing.
Any unique pre-race routines or lucky charms? Always wear a watch. Makes warm-ups and getting to the start line on time much easier.
