IF THE TEAM HAD A MASCOT, IT WOULD BE …

GB: A bumblebee. Not only because of our team colors, but also because we’re all hard workers and always loyal to whoever our “queen” may be on a given day.
BB: A kangaroo with a bottle of Mitchelton wine

FAVORITE RACE

GB: The Vårgårda Road Race. I have good memories from this race, because each time I ride in it, I feel like it marks a big step in my development.

TEAM JOKESTER

GB: Me! I may be biased, but I think my jokes are pretty good.
BB: Alex Edmonson

FAVORITE SNACKS/MEALS

GB: Smoked salmon and avocado on toast

FAVORITE PRERACE SONG

BB: Whatever our resident DJs cue up. Usually something with a strong beat and some energy, but not too wild.

FAVORITE MOMENT IN HISTORY

GB: All the big and small moments in feminist history that mean women today have the freedom to follow our dreams.
BB: The birth of my son Waylon

CAUSES

GB: I feel pretty strongly about and try to do my bit for the environment. I also care a lot about the fight for basic human rights around the world.
BB: Environmental conservation, especially in our home region of the Appalachian mountains. We support the Southern Appalachian Highland Conservancy through the Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo.

GROWING UP, I WANTED TO BE …

GB: A foreign diplomat, because I wanted to be involved in the world.
BB: A professional skier or a doctor.

HOW MANY CALORIES DO YOU EAT DAILY DURING TRAINING?

GB: About 150-200 calories per hour of training
BB: Usually just enough to get through training and not gain any weight. Maybe 2,500-4,500 calories.

WHAT DO YOU DO ON REST DAYS?

BB: Rest! I also need to do day-to-day chores — like laundry, prepare ride food, etc. — so my training days can be quality and focused on training. Ideally, I’ll go for a little walk or an easy MTB ride.

STRANGEST THING THAT’S HAPPENED DURING A RACE

GB: Last year at The Women’s Tour of Britain, our race was neutralised because a man had a heart attack on the side of the road just as the race convoy was passing. The race ambulance had to take him to a hospital.
