Did the Most Animal Prime motivate you to win the race? Was it the five hundred dollars, and/or was is the Most Animal title that motivated you?

“Racing aggressively for my Supermint Teammates was the #1 Goal. With that said, winning Most Animal was amazing and the $500 cash was a special bonus. Also, I kept going and even got the seconnd preem for an additional $200!!”

How did you spend the five hundred dollars?

“Most of the cash went into the team purse for the weekend so we could purchase more Tazzina coffee. Aaaannd I kept some so I could pay my expensive rent in California.”

Before winning the Most Animal Prime, had you ever heard of Manual for Speed?

If you had to describe Manual for Speed to someone who does not ride bikes or care about bike stuff, how would you describe us, what would you say?

“While cycling may have a different meaning to everyone, MFS makes it REAL. Also MFS shows how cyclists need to risk losing in order to win. Whether winning means racing, fame, photo opportunities or whatever. I love this!”

“Saturday night when I won the preems, it was a huge highlight for me, I have not been able to go off the front of a race for that long and hold it, I always get caught quickly. This season has been inspiring with great teammates selling out for each other and a director that has us racing in an aggressive fashion which I like!”

Did the Most Animal Prime motivate you to win the race? Was it the five hundred dollars, and/or was is the Most Animal title that motivated you?

“You ALWAYS go out with the intention to to win the bike race. Otherwise, you’re cheating yourself and wasting your reg fee. And if you can snag a prime along the way, that’s pretty rad. If you can snag THE prime along the way, even radder. The cash was great but “Most Animal” is a pretty sweet title, it’s definitely going on my resume. ”

How did you spend the five hundred dollars?

“Ideal scenario: paying for a roundtrip flight to see @dani.da.dog in CA so we can ride bikes all over the place. In reality: forking it over for rent so I don’t have to sleep on the streets this month. ”

Do you want us to send you some Most Animal socks?

“Pretty please.”

“It’s kinda like ESPN™, but instead of reports on all those lame ball sports, there’s coverage of legendary races, bikes, and the guys and gals who pedal them reaaaaaal well. Some real ‘boots on the ground’ sports journalism shit.”
