I have always had good strength in my legs from working out with weights. I have also been riding a bike of some sort for most of my life and have good agility.
The biggest challenge has been simulating a tornado with wind machines and dirt and debris. Right when you walk on the set, you feel the energy of a tornado. But the hardest thing is trying to get dialogue out in all of that.
But I plan on dedicating specific training to track this winter for the next racing season.
I think racing and riding are two different elements of cycling. You either want to or not depending on what you want to get out of it.
After 4 years on NYPD Blue it has been nice to have the summer off and spend time with family and friends. There are a few projects I am interested in and plan to be working this fall.
The first thing I did was a print ad for Century Plaza. I was five.
But my passion is racing cars. It's what I like to do in my off time.
We recycle everything in my house. I'm not into any particular organizations, but I'm doing my part and that makes me feel okay.
I always have this feeling that I'm losing everything, so I'm a real saver.
Road racing at the moment because it's still so new to me. I like the fact that they are longer and teamwork is important. I guess the same is true for track, it's just that I have used track this year as a training device to improve my sprinting in road racing.
I have a hard time watching the shows now. It is like opening up a yearbook when you were in junior high. I think everybody looks back at their photos and cringe, and I get to experience it with everybody else in the world looking at mine.
