Well, I reside in a very urban setting of Kansas City, Missouri. I work for a bike shop called, BikeSource. I currently ride a new Specialized CruX Pro Carbon. I love this bike. I also have a few odd ball bikes. I'm going to start racing 'cross this fall. The scene is huge out here.
I totally forgot to answer this, I’m so sorry!!!
I’m so jealous of your CX scene!! SoCal cx is slowly getting larger and larger, I cant wait to try it out. I’m definitely nervous, I’m not the most graceful person in the world haha I can imagine getting a face full of mud my first race hahahaha
Congratulations, you are the first person to down right shower me with flattery via tumblr. But seriously. I'm glad you like it.
Ok three questions...
1. Coke or Pepsi?
2. What part of the country are you pedaling your bike in?
3. Favorite mid-ride pastry?
1. Diet Coke, but Pepsi if there is none in sight. I was raised on DC and am now trying desperately to cut down my consumption. However, nothing beats a cold soda after a long ride.
2. I’m from southern California, born and raised.
3. I don’t normally eat pastries while on the bike. For longer rides, I usually have a blueberry wheat waffle with a layer of nutella and slices of strawberry. I adapted it from what I sometimes hand out to the guys in the feed zone (waffle, almond butter, drizzled honey and banana slices)
basically, i need to find someone who is as busy as me.
I don’t need to find anyone, but it would be nice if a guy came along who had a busy schedule just like me, that I could connect with. That way, when we both actually have spare time, we could appreciate each other’s company a lot more. Every guy I meet cannot seem to understand/be able to deal with me being constantly on the go. It’s not always about you. Gosh.
Still debating on my trip to Arziona this weekend. Dana Point, one of the only NRC races in Southern California, is this Sunday and I’d hate to miss it. Last year, some majot drama happened, and I know this year will be full of revenge and great racing. However, this weekend is also a great weekend to go out to AZ before it gets way too hot to even do anything, and there’s also an alleycat going down on Saturday that everyone will be at.
You know you are a part of a truly solid relationship when your boyfriend is in a grumpy mood, so you make him go for a bike ride by himself.
Solo rides solve everything.
I wish I had a boyfriend who understood this concept. I dated a guy two years ago who didn’t understand why I always went out to ride when I was in a bad mood. He didn’t understand anything when it came to me and riding. He wanted me to chose him over the bike and the races. I told him to find a new girlfriend.
Yea I know you from Austin's facebook actually. I saw you post something, and then you started appearing in his vlogs. Saw him as well yesterday going towards the starting line, didn't want to bother him though.
If I wasn't racing, soigneur is what I would probably want to do.
Austin and I have been friends for a little bit over a year now. I was in his vlogs last year around Jan/Feb but ended up working a lot and we kinda lost touch. When he told me he was going to riding for MM, I was stoked. I’ve been helping with the team since the beginning of the season and having him on the team now makes it even more fun because we are now working together with the filming of his vlogs. Austin is a great guy and so much fun. He doesn’t bite, either! So next time you see him, say hi!
Saw you working the feed zone today at Devil's Punch Bowl, while I was riding by you I was going to yell "HI PAGE!" but then I'm sure you would've thought I was a freak hahah.
I would’ve said hi! I’m not trying to sound stuck up or like mrs-cool-girl, but I’m at that point where when I go to races, people say hi to me that I don’t even know, or barely recognize but I can’t remember their name or where I met them from. I’m pretty sure this will become more frequent because of Austin Carroll’s vlogs, but I don’t really mind it. I’m a friendly person, you should’ve just said hi. If I give you a weird look, it’s I’m trying to think of who you are, I tend to make weird faces when I’m thinking hahah And if I’m a bit short if you come up to me, it’s more than likely because I’m working. My brain overloads when I’m in the feed zone or, basically doing anything at a race. The Redlands Bicycle Classic and San Dimas Stage Race are great examples haha
