Quotes from Pro Panel at Rev3 Knoxville

My friendship with Matty goes up and down based on how we are racing and training. We're still friends now, but we'll see how tomorrow goes.

The professional field is stacked for the Rev3 Knoxville race held on May 15, 2011. Here are a few quotes from the pro Q&A.

Dealing with adversity

Magali Tisseyre: I slipped over a railroad track this morning and I’ll just have to wait and see how my muscles do for tomorrow. The best thing is to stay positive.

Family

Tisseyre: My mom is always there for me and comes to a lot of my races.

Matty Reed: My family is getting a little into biking, so I have that tag along thing going

Trash talking

Julie Dibens: I expect Leanda to be pretty fast and no excuses from her.

Cameron Dye: My friendship with Matty goes up and down based on how we are racing and training. We’re still friends now, but we’ll see how tomorrow goes.

Reed: Even though I’m his (Dye) friend, I still want to beat him. I’d love to defend my title from last year. It’s a pretty good field.

Redlining

Richie Cunningham: I redline the whole way. I can’t give up any seconds. If you give up 10 seconds, you spend the rest of the race chasing. If you don’t redline, you don’t have a chance to win it.

Tisseyre: For me, redline is based on perceived exertion.

Dye: In a sprint, it’s anaerobic. Olympic is based on perceived exertion. If you don’t finish a race with everything you had, you’re not going to win.

Nutrition

Dye: Pre-race nutrition is most important

Tisseyre: Caffeine is a good thing, for me at least

Weather

Dye: With rain, hammer everything but the corners
