+ What inspires you every day to get on your bike?
The thing that gets me on the bike at the moment is becoming a symbol of change and hope for kids like me. It’s hard to reach for the stars when no one in the sky looks like you.
+ How do you use data for your training and racing?
Data from my training usually means nothing when I’m racing. It does help with controlling some efforts but racing is raw. You can usually push so much deeper when you’re in the heat of battle and you should trust your instincts.
+ What does technology bring into bike racing?
Technology is the future, I could write a ten page paper on why that is but we don’t have that kind of time. People want to connect with there favorite riders, they want hear what they have to say. People want to see the data and effort of there a favorite athletes to compare it to others and themselves.
+ If you have a college degree, (or currently in the process) what is it in?
I went to college to study graphic design. It ended up not being something I wanted to do but I 100% encourage everyone to give school a chance. If nothing else the experiences you’ll gain will be worth your time and effort.
+ If you could do one thing with AI (artificial intelligence) besides fight malware, what would it be?
I would use artificial intelligence to help me build a business empire. Having the advantage of a thing that doesn’t sleep, doesn’t feel, and gets things done would be a huge advantage in bringing ideas to life. Or maybe just have it Google things…
+ What is your super power?
My super power is uncorrupted imagination.
