About Emerson

What inspired you to ride?

Watching VHS tapes of the 1999 Tour de France got me immediately hooked on the sport.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

Not having the confidence to know I was a strong rider was something that actually held me back quite a bit. It’s only been in the last few years that I’ve been able to get rid of those doubts.

Favorite cheat meal?

Cinnamon buns or donuts.

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

A fairly common dessert of mine is Greek yogurt and frozen fruit with a bit of cinnamon and honey. It takes two seconds to make and is a nice way to finish off dinner.

Tip for staying healthy?

Being healthy is a lifestyle and not a trend that lasts a few days or weeks. Find a diet and exercise routine that works with your life and do your best to incorporate it day-in, day-out.

What motivates you to ride?

Over the years this answer has changed a lot but currently I’m motivated by competition and wanting to make the most of the opportunities I have in this sport.
