Funniest Race Moment: During the 2012 Hy Vee Triathlon in Des Moines I passed a guy during the bike who was riding barefoot on Speed Play clips.  I asked him “Where’s your shoes?” and his reply was that he didn’t want to waste the time putting them on in T1.  I’m glad he was going so slow, otherwise he might have gotten mad at my hysterical laughing.

Name You Gave Your Bike: Lola, My Cervelo Princess.
