There’s something about watching your father do something that makes you want to follow in his footsteps. I started racing bikes when I was 14 years old. In the beginning, I just wanted to be on a bike and all I did was ride. I’d race my brothers and kids in my neighborhood. I got a kick out of pushing myself. Cycling wasn’t like any other sport I had done and that really got my attention.
After a while, I fell deeply in love with the sport and when I started doing well I knew it was what I was meant to do. To escape from my surroundings as an inner city kid, I focused on a future traveling the world. I look forward to my chance at racing against the best in the world.
