What's your favourite bike and why?
Anthem Pro 0 29er because it is easy to ride in the descent as well as during climbing. I also like the geometry and the general handling
What's your favourite place to ride and why?
East Burke in Vermont USA because there are numerous trails with flow. This is one of the best places where I can really enjoy my bike.
What's your must-have cycling accessory and why?
It think the power meter is the must-have cycling accessory because it makes it easy to quantify the intensity of the effort during a big training or a race. I own several power meters, and it would be difficult to train efficiently without them.
What's your favourite bike discipline and why?
Cross-country because I like the effort it takes and all the physical, technical, tactical and psychological challenges it represents.
Other than biking and attending school, I've been doing short track speed skating for several years, and I liked it very much. Also, during my rare spare time, I like to go out to watch a theatre movie and hang around with friends.
Get a good job in mechanical engineering and riding my bike every day
