I started getting interested in cycling when i was 13 yrs old, when I would see my dad leave on his bike with a local cycling club for hours. I got my first road bike when I was 14 and I was hooked right away. I started riding with my local club on weekends and the adrenalin was great. I started to learn how to do pulls and was getting faster and faster.
Eventually one of the racing officials, Carlos Soto, told me about the early birds in January. I started training hard during the week and started racing right away. Then Carlos also told me about a good team that can help me out, Tieni Duro. So I immediately called our awesome coach, Jason, and he told me about the Sunday rides.
I loved the team and joined and they have helped me out this year tremendously. They provided a lot of support and helped me upgrade from a Cat 5 to a Cat 3 in my first year of racing. Thanks Jason for being a great coach and hauling me around every where. And thank you Elaine and Rick for being friendly and guiding me on my first Sunday rides. I'm looking forward to the 2013 year racing with the team!
