One Thing You Do Not Know About Me
I am an adrenaline junkie, like I have to go all out to get the most thrills I can.... Oh, also played Trombone in the San Diego All- City honor band when I was a kid.
Pro Tip
Its okay to take the day off if you arent feeling it. Dont stop living just because your trying to be or you are a pro cyclist. Enjoy everyday as if it is your last.
Best Tactical Advice
In the final few kms of a field sprint race, dont get all agro on people, its much better to go with the flow insead of trying to smash bars with everyone. Your concentration will then be upon the race instead of the dude you just cussed out. Always keep your head up and on a swivel so you have an exit plan if someone in front of you goes down. I cant count the amout of times Ive used that exit.
Best Way To Recover
Recovery shakes are great to get in a quick thousand calories into the system. Then get in a real meal and some rest.
Best Training Advice
If your not having fun, your not doing it right.
