Best Moment in Your Cycling Career: Anytime the whole team comes together and delivers on the team goal...a sprint win, a GC result, etc. Those are the moments I race for.
Any Race Day Habits: I like to generally pack my bag and set aside all my race day items the night before, even if it's a night race, so I know I have what I need. It lets my mind relax. The rest of the race prep was done a long time ago with training! :-P
Favorite Race: Tulsa Tough, even though I'm not a sprinter. It's the best race to duke it out and deliver your sprinter to the line.
Goals for 2019: A GC podium.
Favorite Non-Cycling Activity: Being a home chef and anything in the mountains.
Biggest Fear: Heights.
Must-Haves for Traveling: A new book and an aeropress!
