// Q&A with Ingrid 

Why cycling? 

I love the feeling of being free on the bike, the adrenaline and having time for yourself. 


What's your motivation to train on those extra tough, cold-weather days?

 

The compromise I have with myself to be better everyday. Cycling is a tough sport that challenges you a lot, and I love challenges. 


Favorite ride:

 

Somewhere new, in the middle of nowhere with great scenery and friends.


Career highlight:

8 x elite national champ, TT Pan-American Champion, and London Olympian. 


2019 goals:

 

National Championships, Pan-American medalists, be better at the World tour level and help the team achieve all of our goals. 
 

When not riding, I like to...:

Bake, spend time with friends, family and my husband. 

Favorite warmup song:

I like to shuffle play on whatever is trending at the moment. =)


Favorite post-ride food:

If it's a long hard ride I love the Mexican chilaquiles!


Any advice to future // aspiring cyclists? 

If you want something train for it, be patient and never give up!
