Nooks asked me to join PRT in 2018. I was reluctant to join because I was intimidated…but I joined not knowing how I’d fit into the team. Everyone was welcoming and offered words of encouragement. Whenever I had a question, whoever I asked, they always responded with sound advice. Through months of developing my cycling skill with the help of PRT, I found myself in my first Cat 5 race in January. I wouldn’t have been able to grasp the idea of crit racing at 45 years old if it wasn’t for the team. I find myself looking forward to each ride, to give my absolute best effort to represent PRT.
