What do you like to do besides racing bikes?

One of my favorite activities is snowboarding. I grew up on the slopes, starting skiing at age 2 and switching to snowboarding around age 9. As a kid, I always wanted to become a pro freestyle snowboarder. I also love adventures of any sort whether it be hiking to a mountain lake, sledding down sand dunes, surfing, or going on camping trips with friends. I have earned myself a reputation of being the "adventurous kid," which I take a lot of pride in.

 

What’s your happiest place?

The world is my happiest place and I’m lucky to have the opportunity to explore it by bike.

 

What’s your top moment on the bike that’s not a result?

My whole squad in high school liked to bike- mostly dirt jumping. The Halloween of my senior year of high school we all got together and got pumpkins and went to the local bike park. We carved out the pumpkins and put various faces on them. We put the pumpkins on our heads and shredded a couple laps on the smaller line as a whole train. It was awesome.

 

What specialty dish do you like to cook?

I’m not sure about specialty, per se, but one of my favorite meals to cook is avocado toast and eggs. Simple, delicious, nutritious.

 

What other non-biking related fact(s) about yourself would you like to share?

I graduated high school with a 4.5 GPA and a 34 on the ACT while balancing school with racing and friends. I also played soccer competitively all through my childhood and stopped my freshman year after playing for my high school team. It was super fun and I was honored to make the team as a freshman but I decided to stop because I wanted to focus more on cycling.

 

What schooling are you doing next year?

Next year I will continue my education at California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, CA. I am still working on figuring out my field of study, but will most likely be studying Biomedical Engineering.
