Zoe and Chloe Dygert will probably have fun as two native English speakers who can put down some big watts.
Zoe's always looked up to Chloe and always looked at the times she's been doing on the velodrome, like the 2km individual pursuit as a junior. That is what she was chasing after. We're only a month into being with the team, and there's already that friendly rivalry and a bit of competition between the two. When you get two athletes who can push each other, that can only be good in the long term.
As a professional rider yourself, your most prominent achievement was winning the 2004 Paris-Roubaix.
Yes, that will always stay with me as the biggest day on a bike in my life.
What was your mindset that day?
I woke up that morning, and I felt that there was something different. There was that kind of vibe in the air. I just felt everything was right…. When we got to the start, Rolf Sorenson, who was my agent at the time, came up to me and said, 'My dad is a betting man. Who should he put his money onto?" And I said me. Rolf said, 'What, to win?' He was almost taken aback by it. We got racing, and I could feel that everything was just—I didn't touch the pedals for the first 200 kilometers. It was just something completely different.
