Someone give me an answer as to who this interview is from. Unlike Miah, they are not PAF.
I started riding a bike for sport in team triathlons with my mom and little brother in 1998. After I purchased my first road bike, I trained hard to ride the 40 mile Corporate Cycling Challenge in 2001. In 2002 I attempted an early season crit in which I got dropped instantly. I had never been competitive in sports before, but I realized after this race that I was in for the long haul.
How long have you been at it?
I've been racing competitively for 5 years.
Why do you do it?
The camaraderie, health benefits, and bike technology are why I love this sport.
