Q&A

Name: Gary & Deby Ogden City and country: Jacksonville, FL Age: "Spring chickens, in our late 30's" Occupation: Gary, retired contractor. Deby, HR director at bank Do you follow bicycle racing? We are so excited to be here! This is our first experience! How many races do you attend a year? We've heard about races like these, but haven't actually taken time out to get the full experience. Do you have a favorite rider? All of them are truly inspirational to us, but of course we are rooting for team USA. How did you get involved in the sport? Sometimes we ride our bikes together during beach trips, we see how hard it is to be a cyclist. What’s the farthest you have traveled to watch a race? From Florida to New York for our daughters half marathon. What other sports do you follow? Football, golf, baseball, and we enjoy the Olympics. Do your friends or family think you are nuts? DUH! All of our family think we're crazy for making this trip. What are your impressions of Richmond? It seems very cool and fresh. There are a lot of sites to see, and the people are really friendly. I think Richmond prepped well for the race.
