Pro Tip
During a race --- Drink before you're thirsty and eat before you're hungry!
Best Tactical Advice
Be aggressive. Don't watch the race play while you're sitting in the back of the peleton. Attack and force the selection yourself. (Even if you don't belong there!)
Best Way To Recover
Grab a recovery shake IMMEDIATELY after a hard workout.
Best Training Advice
Limit the junk miles. If you're training to race, don't JRA (just ride around).
Craziest Place Slept For A Bike Race
The back of my '96 Corolla in a high school parking lot before the Leesville Gap Road Race. I woke up to the cops tapping on my window at 3:30AM.
Favorite Jakroo Detail
The small zipper pockets in all the jerseys. I store my house key and credit card in there before every ride!
