Kevin OwensCategory: Road Cat 4

Best Achievement: Training over the winter to reduce my GranFondo Whistler time from 4hr 15mins to 3hrs 36mins.

Goals for 2014: Be competitive in some Cat 3 WTNC finishes, survive the UBC Grand Prix Cat 3/4 criterium and finish in the front group of the GranFondo Whistler.

What makes you smile while riding your bike: The feeling at the last switch back of a Seymour or Cypress climb when you know that you have beaten the voice of pain in your head.  Mid-ride coffee stops also never fail to put a smile on my face.

What is your spirit animal: The anatomically similar (ignore the extra legs) Stick Insect.

If you could ride with 3 people (alive or dead) who would it be: The eclectic mix of Geraint Thomas, Richard Branson and Russell Brand.
