FAVORITE NUTRITION HACK: Carry extra drink mix (or hydration tabs) in a Ziploc bag on long rides – you can just fill up with water at the gas station and keep using the drink mix you love ;)
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
Seeing more people out enjoying riding bikes, and showing that you can still have fun while being a professional racer. I stopped racing after college but came back motivated after seeing my dad’s progression and journey with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to race at the highest level while I’m still young. I love the competition of racing as well as engaging with other people who share a love of cycling!
HOW ARE YOU DOING GOOD IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
In 2022 I started Rocket Sloth Co, a company centered around going fast but keeping it chill. We aim to raise money and awareness for MS through fun merch and good times. We’re still growing, but would love to incorporate more event activations and increase people’s ability to ride bikes, however that may look, for people living with MS.
