If you could have dinner with anyone famous, who would it be?

Whitney Houston. Haha!!! Such a shame that will never happen.

Which skill or talent do you have that people don’t know about?

I know all Whitney Houston's songs by heart.

What was your first job?

Cleaning at a small grocery store! Each Saturday for 10 hours, but it made good money. The thought of it still makes my feet hurt!

What’s the longest distance or time you’ve ever ridden on a bike?

I wanted to ride all the climbs in Mallorca in one day and I remember doing 6.5 hours with the Telenet Fidea girls. We didn't have Google maps then, only four girls, and an old fashioned road map...!
