ZippCast catches up with American Alexis Ryan of Canyon-SRAM Racing to talk about her life as a pro cyclist. Her dog Smoke even joins us, though she is more interested in napping than cycling. We met with Alexis while in Tennessee for the recent US Pro Road Championships. She breaks down cycling strategy and how a year away from competition during the pandemic rekindled her passion for pro cycling. Alexis also contrasts racing in America vs. Europe and reveals what makes a cyclist savvy. She also tells us her favorite Zipp wheel. There's something for every cycling fan in this podcast.
