Questions for Coach Reem:

What do you like most about coaching Paris?

There are so many amazing things about working with Paris.  I love that he sets big goals and goes after them.  During our first call this year, he told me that he wanted to ride 250 miles in one day.  So, we built the season around that.  He put in long miles, week after week.  He listened and learned how to get the most out of his body.  I was so excited to see him finish that day with a huge smile on his face.  

What is one thing which stands out most about Paris?

He is not afraid of a challenge.  When he makes a commitment, he sticks to it.
