I started swimming first. I didn’t start riding until I was 14. My dad was a cyclist, so he got me into it.

I like the adrenaline rush you get from cycling. It’s also nice to be on a team. Last year was my first year on the team and it was super cool … and crazy, but I like crazy.

This year, I want to help our team win, no matter what that means—whether I serve as more of a domestique, or if I’m the one who wins it for the team. All I know is that I’m going to try my best, work really hard, and have a lot of fun.
