Most famous person you’ve met

Most embarrassing moment
Attacking George Hincapie in a fun ride in the Caribbean not knowing there is a big hill coming. Long story short, I had to get off and push up that hill cause I was so tired from attacking George and he took pictures and send it to the BMC team. Mind you this was when I was a Yachtie and not a cyclist.

Interesting fact
I use to work on private yachts and I own a clothing brand with two mates one being Brendon Davids from Kargo Pro MTB.

Best advice
If you don’t gain something or learn something then why are you doing it? Champions aren’t made from beer and pizza.
