“I have been preparing well. I’ve had a great summer run out in the U.S. riding criteriums and Mister Glen Flowers, threw a practice race for us yesterday and I was the only the only female to line up with the elite guys. I was in every break, all day, right up there with the guys, all the way down to the finish. I had a very interesting race, a very good run; it definitely boosted my morale. After that race, I definitely feel like you can do this; if you are in shape to race with the elite guys, you are in shape to race with the pro-women.”

“Your anticipation?”

“They will have big teams out there, so riding the race by myself will definitely be a challenge. However, there will be a lot of station prizes, lucrative as well.  I have a very fast sprint and I think that in the beginning of the race I can definitely go for these and get into some of that action. Winning the race is farfetched, but for me, nothing is too grand. I am going out there, going to give it my best shot. Recently, in the U.S., I did I’d say quite an amazing job in the seventeen international races that I’ve done this summer, I won a silver medal at Dominican Republic for the Caribbean Cycling Championship so I’ve been quite on a roll and I think that I am in the condition that I need to be to be able to do something at this race.”
