When did you first start riding bikes? hmm, as a child I learned, but I didn't really get into riding riding bikes until high school/college.
What is your most memorable accomplishment in the sport so far? Racing Qinghai Lake stage race in China was unforgettable. I earned my first UCI points in a field sprint there, and racing a 13 stage race in the highland plateau between China, Mongolia, and Nepal is something I will never forget. The food, people, landscapes and culture were astounding, and when you pair them with the high-altitude racing and jaw-dropping climbs and descents, it's pretty powerful stuff.
Where is your favorite place to ride? Near my grandmother's house in Palo Alto, California. The locals refer to this area as "The Peninsula," and there is phenomenal riding you can do.
What is your nickname? Depends on whether I have a beard or not...
What is your favorite Honey Stinger product? Mmmm, the caramel waffles!
What do you listen to while warming up (music)? I love all music, but recently I've got a playlist heavily featuring Spank Rock, Major Lazer, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Hudson Mohawk.
