// Q&A with Shannon
I love being challenged each day in what I do; I get to follow my dream and fulfill my passion; and I love that cycling takes you all over the world, and teaches you so many great lessons about yourself and life.
Anywhere in Italy.
Favorite cycling moment (so far):
Winning the Nationals road race in 2018 and winning stage 2 of the Joe Martin Stage race in 2019, because the team worked so hard for me, and I was so stoked to finish it off for us.
Work hard on and off the bike to prepare myself physically and mentally so I can arrive on race day knowing I have done everything I can do perform at my best. Also, I have a goal to keep making my career fun and enjoyable for me, which is more of a mindset. I ride my bike because I love it, I am passionate and dedicated to my team and this sport, and it is my goal to keep it that way.
When not riding, I like to...:
Sing and play piano; and draw/sketch
Favorite warmup song:
24k magic by Bruno Mars
Favorite post-ride food:
Eggs on toast with mushrooms, avocado, and tomatoes.
Any advice to future // aspiring cyclists?
Love what you do and do what you love! Every day is an opportunity, you have the power to choose what you will do with it.
Little known fact?
My nickname is Dash - short for Dashchund because I have really short legs and a long torso.
