After many years of traveling the world on the pro race circuit, I came to understand something. This all happened because I started somewhere that made me fall in love with this sport. The travel, the bikes, the exploring—these were the things that got to my heart. Now I have a new focus. I’m going back to my roots to be that guy who rides bikes, all kinds of bikes, simply to see new places, have new experiences and meet new people along the way.
