I saw the Tour de France in 2002 and thought it looked cool. I did my first race, Cyclefest in West Palm Beach, at the end of 2002 and was hooked.
With Lupus, I had the opportunity to race some of the toughest races in the world like the Tour of Qinghai Lake and the Tour of Alberta. I would not have had those opportunities with any other team, and I am very grateful for all the opportunities Lupus gave me. Sadly at the end of the 2016 season Lupus folded.
I want to see how far I can push my body and the results I can achieve on the bike.

Any tips/tricks as to how to balance work and training?
Don't stress if you miss a workout or are unable to get in a full workout. Consistently putting in the work for most of your workouts is the key to success. I've learned I need to stay consistent with training, diet, and rest. If I do not do those consistently I will not perform well. I have also learned to keep working hard toward your goals even if they seem impossible at times.
My best results to date came at the 2014 Tobago International Cycling Classic where I won the first stage and the overall. I also won the 2015 Rouge Roubaix. In my opinion Tobago and Rouge are equally good results.
