Most embarrassing moment:
Probably when I crashed my bike into a pavement in front of the entire school in grade 8.
From travelling so much, I have stopped unpacking my toiletry bag; I just continue to use it as if I’m away from home.
Keep focused, every day and every ride needs to have a purpose and a plan. Every ride needs to have a goal.
