Favorite Ride: Front range. My house-Bear Creek Park-Mt. Falcon-Lair of the Bear-My house.
Favorite Drink: Coffee, lots of it.
Most stitches at once & where: Who knows. My favorite stitches? Two-years-old, hanging from the springs of one of those springy jumping horses. The spring went straight through my hand so . . . I just hung quietly until my mom found me.
Worst Race: World Cup in Napa Cali. I tear up just thinkig about it. I flew out to Cali at the ripe age of 18 and got a hotel about 10 miles from the race venue. I was sooo broke. I actually wrode around town for hours the night before the race trying to find a Walmart for cheap food. The race course was really mudy. I wrecked on the first of three laps, broke my seat and tore a huge hole in my shin. Fortunately (I guess) mud packed the hole and stopped most of the bleeding. I finished the race with no seat, in the rain, crossing an empty finishline. After riding back to the hotel and cleaning up as best as possible, I rode my broken self and bike to the ER.
Best Race: Mercury Tour. Collin M is right. That race was great. Three days of racing, cash purses, huge turnouts . . ..
I race bikes because: I look really good in spandex . . . and because I can’t jump.
