Paris-Roubaix.

What is your go-to training meal? 

Oatmeal or bread with peanut butter and banana.

Cows.

What was the best piece of cycling advice you ever received?

That you always need to give your maximum and if you miss nice things like parties, good dinners, eat what you want and not always try to look after your food. The life after the cycling carreer is still long enough to enjoy all this moments. Your carreer is short so just enjoy every single day of it.

Believe in yourself and go for it.

The aero chainrings.
