At the moment, “Coffee” by Sylvan Esso is in my head a lot. My mate was playing it over and over a few weeks back and it’s stuck up there it seems.

Favorite Movie/Video Game:

The original The Italian Job was a favorite for my brother and I growing up.

Throughout the 2015 USA Pro Challenge, Manual for Speed will be following the Axeon Cycling junior development team because we think cycling development is critically important and woefully under appreciated, especially in the United States. In order to help you familiarize yourself with these young bucks, we spent some time with the guys before the race asking questions and taking photos in their finely appointed Steamboat Springs condos.
