VN: Is 2016 going to be your final year racing?
LH: Yeah, I think so. I’m going to be 38 — that would probably be the peak of my performance, like Kristin Armstrong. It seems like the time to call it quits. If this [Gent-Wevelgem win] is the best result I ever get, I’m pretty damn happy. I don’t know what to expect from here on out but I look back and I think about how I was with Vera Bradley and Colavita and then you’re just around such amazing athletes, and then with Tibco, they just threw us in the fire in Europe. I remember my first race over here and I just thought, “really? This is what they want me to do?” I thought I had carpal tunnel from breaking so much during those races. You get back to the States and you just want to go back and do it again for some reason. To experience Flanders, La Flèche Wallonne, and some of those races with so much history — it makes you feel like a million bucks. Even if you’re dead last, people are still cheering you on. You really feel like you’re part of something."
