Strength

Punchy and long courses that play out to be races of attrition, and time trialing.

Animal

I would want to be a Quokka. They are adorable little marsupials about the size of a house cat native to islands off the western coast of Australia, and because they have no natural predators, they are comfortable around humans and even approach them. They have since become internet famous. Google it. You will not be disappointed.

​What would/do you do to save the planet?

I try to do little things as much as I can, because if everyone did those little things, it would add. I recycle whatever I can, I turn the lights/heat off in the house when I don’t need them, I buy sustainably-sourced ingredients for whatever I want to cook, I ride my bike to get to where I need to go as much as possibly, and I pick up track along trails or in the neighborhood when I see it.
