Probably Stigmata by Ministry, but Terrible Lie by Nine Inch Nails is a good one too.

Not really, but my dad and I have the tradition of going to IHOP after the Ontario Criteriums.

My favorite criterium course is the Jurupa Valley Grand Prix, which is now gone, and my favorite race on the Velodrome is the Keirin.

I found out about SDBC through a fellow Junior, Noelle Camanyag. I was looking for a club, and SDBC was the perfect fit.

I’d like to give a special thanks to all of the amazing SDBC Women, with extra kudos to the amazing Pat Murray, Esther Walker, and Angela Lee for being such a huge support to me through the years.
