Do you train solo or with friend or teammates?

That’s a tough one.

Do you use a razor, electric, or wax?
Razor when I get around to it.

What race are you most proud of?
I had the greatest time of my life at Fitchburg Stage Race in 2010. I felt invincible. Thanks Colin!

If you could go on a ride with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be?
A well dressed, beautiful blonde girl, possibly with a European accent. She would probably be riding a dutch grandma bike, and I a matte black English racer.
