What I really care about is winning races and winning money. I couldn't race bicycles just because I like it recreationally. This is my profession. I also do it because I like it but that can't be the only reason.1 I wouldn’t have a way to live, a way to support myself, a way to get ahead.

I know that I have the ability, I just need the opportunity to move forward.

In the next 5 years I want to get to a World Tour team. I know I have the skills; all I need is someone to help me get to the teams. Once I am on a team, I know I alone can support myself and adapt to the lifestyle there.—Carlos Eduardo Alzate Escobar
