Tiago has figured out how to strike a good life/work balance. Here's the secret: it’s not all about training and racing; it's also about enjoying the act of riding a bike with friends.
What's your favourite race?
How did you get into cycling?
My father rode a bike and enjoyed cycling, I liked what I saw so I began cycling and decided to try out the competitive aspect.
How do you train for racing?
I always try to train with maximum dedication —I stay focused on my goals but I also try to enjoy the companionship and take pleasure in what I do.
What was your best result?
4th place overall in the Tour of Loulé
Tell us about your best race.
I think my best race was the Volta a Portugal do Futuro, not because of my individual results, but because I enjoyed each stage to the maximum with my teammates.
What do you do in your free time?
Relax, read, play video games, cook, and hang out with family and friends.
