Tell us about your greatest cycling achievement.
The one that is close to my heart is my first ever stage win at the Tour of California while riding for Team Hincapie. We were an underdog team at the race and we proved how good our program was, not only by winning a stage but also by having the yellow jersey for a few days.
Who inspires you?
People that overcome themselves. People that ride bikes day in day out. People that find time to stay physically fit while working 9-5 jobs and have other obligations but still find time to get out and ride.
What’s one of your favorite memories from the past year?
Being at the Tour de France and getting the yellow jersey on the team with Giulio Ciccone.
What is your favorite Bontrager or Trek equipment?
I really love my TopFuel mountain bike.
