Knitting. Keep it quiet please.
Tell us about your greatest cycling achievement.
World Championships Time Trial win in 2013. My goal was to be a world champion once. The whole year I was the best time trialist, but I was extremely nervous before the biggest race of the year. I couldn't sleep the night before, I had breathing problems, and maybe it wasn't even my best time trial of the year. But I managed to be the best that day. At the finish line, I fell in the arms of my family. It was really special.
Who inspires you? Why?
My family. Because they show me what's really important in life, that there's more in life than cycling.
What is your favorite Bontrager or Trek equipment?
My new custom made Bontrager saddle. And the Speed Concept.
