I started riding with my dad when I was 5 or 6. When I wanted to stop playing baseball at 11 my dad said "OK but you have to do something for exercise. Running, swimming or biking but pick something".
I then started riding with his friends group and that led to someone asking me to get on a team.
I joined Tieni Duro because when I was racing against them and watching them I always liked how they were friendly and united as a team. I haven't been disappointed. I really like the "TEAM" atmosphere even in a semi-individual sport.
