Although cross is my main focus right now…I am also really proud of the women’s road team I manage and ride for. Be nice and follow our blog.
Anonymous asked: What is the most memorable heckle you received racing cross this year?
I usually tune out most of the heckles….I mean I half hear them at the time but forget most of what was said about 2 seconds later due to exhaustion. Most common heckles I get; “steel is real”, “go pigtails”, “I like your glasses.”
Hotellin’ it like it is.
Anonymous asked: Your logic is unimpeachable. It's not worth breaking the glasses. Carry on *sniff*
I’ve broken glasses a few times before…once by sitting on them, once by dropping a computer on them, once by riding my bike into the back of a parked car on a dark, rainy night…none of these were enjoyable experiences.
Anonymous asked: What if i were to shrink you and put you on my shoulder instead? that way you can enjoy the ride with me and you wouldn't have to worry about your glasses breaking. Though i would have to make a tiny seat-buckle to keep you from falling off.
Living in a doll house would be pretty cool.
Anonymous asked: You are adorable and I want to put you and your red glasses in my pocket. And also I want to stretch your road and cross bikes out to my size and ride them everywhere because they are sexy as hell. You won't need them in my pocket.
But I don’t want you to break my glasses… that could happen in your pocket.
Anonymous asked: Did you have any initial fears when you started racing? What were they?
Since I started with allycat street races then moved to track, then road , then cx….I think it has been a gradual change from no fear at all to may more fears. I was pretty ballsy but I think mostly due to being unaware….now I would say I am more careful, or at least have better intuition and take only more calculated risks based on years of accumulated fears learned.
Anonymous asked: how has cycling changed your life?
It, and related subject matter, take up basically all of my time…one would assume i did nothing before bikes existed in my life… (far from the truth.)…
