What parts do you change most often?
Laura Smulders: Chain and tyres, need to keep them fresh :)
Who are some of the people who hook you up with parts when you need them?
Laura Smulders: Shimano, Renthal, Tioga our mechanic Jan Segers and of course BMX24Seven.
Do you care about the looks of your bike?
Laura Smulders: Yes, I like my bike to be clean, and without any scratches… That’s pretty hard to keep that up the entire season, but yes I’m pretty careful with my bike :)
Does she have to be clean at all times before you hit the track?
Laura Smulders: Before races my bike is always clean, but between training sessions I don’t always clean it because it would be too much work…
What tire pressure do you run?
Laura Smulders: I stop pumping just before the tire says BOOM :)
Thanks to: Everyone! :) All the people that support me, Team TVE Oegema, sponsors family, friends and fans:)
