Do you have a favorite cyclocross course in the United States and Europe?
In the U.S., Trek Cup is for sure my favorite. … The course is so much fun, and Trek knows how to put on a cyclocross party.
In Europe, I’m still trying to decide what my favorite course. Namur is iconic.
How do you evaluate tire pressure?
That is something I am getting more and more accustomed to with different terrain and different tracks. For cyclocross that is important.
You rode bikes with former NBA star Reggie Miller, right? What was that like as both a cyclist and basketball player yourself?
He’s so wonderful, such good energy! He had done a breast cancer ride out of Indianapolis and invited to be on his team for it. It was roughly 100-mile ride…. He took us to the Pacers practice facility, and we got to shoot around. He was like, ‘OK, Ray, you ready? We’re gonna play a game of HORSE. Also, a sidebar, Larry Bird was there watching. I had not shot a basketball in a while, but it was game-mode, and I’m nailing all my shots. I am almost to E for the game of HORSE, and he’s training these baseline three-pointers, and I’m matching him. Then we go to the free throw line, and he makes a free throw, and I miss on a free throw! It’s really cool to have someone like that come in from another sport and just be a really cool voice for the sport of cycling.
