Why does Annie like cycling?
Annie loves the fact that to be successful you must be physically and mentally strong, not just one or the other, but both. Cycling challenges her to think and react in very short periods of time, which can result in winning or losing. She also likes that it is a team sport, involving great feelings when you have helped to contribute to somebody else’s success or they have done so for you

What will Annie do after cycling?
After being a professional cyclist and competing successfully at the Olympics, she wants to become a investment manager or intelligence analyst
