KATE COURTNEY: Reggie is such a great friend and mentor to me. We connected over the mountain bike, and I think that really speaks to the way that I think cycling connects people and is a sport that's more accessible. And I love how much Reggie loves riding his mountain bike, but I think in spending time together and being able to ride together, I've really gained a lot of appreciation for not only how dominant he was in his sport, but how long he was dominant for. And we kind of became friends just as I reached that top level for the first time. And I think Reggie has been a great source of advice and inspiration and mentorship in terms of understanding what it means to stay at the top, which I think is, in my mind, the true mark of a champion.
