BMC Racing Team–Camp Diary - Today with Kaycee Evans

14. January 2009

Santa Rosa

It's funny how things come together.  This is my first year working with the BMC Racing Team, though before this I was working with another American Continental team.  I didn't exactly aspire to become a soigneur for a cycling team, but I absolutely love my job.  For me, this is really the perfect job.  Coming from Durango, Colorado, I always rode a lot myself, so I have that interest in the sport.  My mom is a massage therapist, so for a long time I have also been interested in that side of the job.  Now joining this team means that I have the opportunity to learn the particulars of a whole new set of legs, arms, backs, and that is very interesting for me. Last year, the team I worked for raced in the US, Australia and New Zealand.  

This year I will have the chance to travel with BMC to Europe as well as all around the USA and that is a huge perk of this job.  When we're travelling, we are definitely working hard, but just to be able to see these beautiful places is such a bonus.  In fact, during the 2008 season, I was on the road so much I really didn't have a permanent home anywhere.  Now after a year of living out of a suitcase I have settled here in Santa Rosa and am so happy to be living in Northern California.  I have only been living here since the New Year, so I basically just know the roads between the warehouse and headquarters and my home.  The riding is amazing too.  Now that we are in the middle of our January training camp, it is crazy that we are enjoying 60 and 70 degree sunny days.  The guys were complaining that they hadn't thought to bring short sleeve jerseys - no one believed they would need them in January!
