    Q&A with Andrew

  • What is your favorite music to listen to?

    Whatever fits my mood. Country, Rap, Alternative, you name it I listen to it.

  • What do you listen to for your TT warmup?

    Varies depending on what I’m liking at the moment

  • Do you have any unique pre-race routines or lucky charms?

    I always message my wife before I head out of the bus, whether it’s a road race or TT.

  • What food do you miss most when you are traveling away from home?

    Mexican

  • What is the first memory you have of riding a bicycle?

    Learning to ride in the dead end street near my house. And loving it.

  • What was your first professional race and how did it go?

    Tour Mediteranean in France. We climbed Mont Faron, a well known climb in the area, I got 4th on the day and 4th overall.

  • What is your favorite race and why?

    I love Paris Nice, but I will have to say Dauphine, and not just because I won it. I like the courses, it’s always a strong field, and serves as the perfect final preparation for the Tour de France.

  • What is your proudest accomplishment thus far?

    Winning the Dauphine.

  • What do you like to do when you have time at home that is not cycling?

    Spend time with my friends, with my wife. Just enjoy the routine of normal day to day life, enjoy not being on the road, enjoy my wife’s cooking.

  • What career would you have pursued if not for cycling? Or, what was your favorite subject in school?

    Definitely Journalism. That or I would have ended up living by the beach teaching surf lessons in Maui. I love to surf.

  • What would you like fans to know about you?

    That I promise to always compete in this sport clean. I think that is the best thing I can do to give back to the sport and give back to the people who support me, and all the fans of cycling. They can take confidence in knowing that when I get a result it will be something they can believe in.
