We recently asked Robbie Ventura a few questions!  Check out the Tour de Smokies event here at Blackberry Farm!


What time of day do you like to exercise?
The morning for sure.  The best way to start your day is a good workout.
The best energy is in the morning and it is a great way to kick start your metabolism as well.

Besides “cycling” how else do you like to work up a sweat?

I love all water sports including wake boarding, surfing and skiing.  One of my favorite things is pushing my limits as I age by trying new tricks on my wakeboard.
If you need some energy, what do you do for it?
When I need energy, I try to change up my environment.  If I am starting to drag mid-day, I go outside or run an errand.  Sometimes just a change of atmosphere does the trick.

What would be your ultimate adventure?
I want to white water raft the CO river, and surf decent size waves in Costa Rica!
Most challenging experience?
By far and away balancing work and family!!!
The second was finishing the Tour of Mexico early in my cycling career.
