Why Sugar Show­down? “This is my sec­ond Sugar Show­down.”

What brought you back? “Ex­cel­lent coach­ing.”

What’s the big­gest bar­rier you’ve over­come? “I would say con­fi­dence; rolling over things that usu­ally scare me.”

What is it about the coach­ing style that gives you con­fi­dence? “I trust that they won’t let me progress to some­thing that I’m not ready for. My goal for to­day is to have a lit­tle more style”

Is there some­thing spe­cial about be­ing in an all-fe­male en­vi­ron­ment? “Th­ese are peo­ple I only get to see once or twice a year so it’s awe­some to re­con­nect with my bike friends that live all over the place. It’s re­ally cool to see a friend that I haven’t seen in a year, to see them progress and hit some­thing they haven’t be­fore. It’s re­ally neat to see girl­friend rid­ers do awe­some stuff.”
