Q: Why do you race?

A: I started racing in high school, in the late 80s, and have just never found anything else I like doing more. Even on my bad days, ripping around on a bicycle makes me happy.


Q: Years riding vs years racing?

A: I started riding seriously in 1987, and got my first racing license in 1988 for my 16th birthday. So a really long time.


Q: Favorite postrace meal?

A: Sit down Mexican.


Q: Describe TRP in 4 words

A: Can’t stop without them!

A: because it fixes everything.


Q: Best advice ever received?

A: Do what you can, when you can.


Q: Worst racing advice ever received?

A:  Attack early.


Q: Favorite subject in school?

A: English literature. I have a bachelors in English and African American Studies, and likely would have gone on to teach if cycling hadn’t sidetracked me.
