R.I.P. Carla Swart
Even though we rarely spoke, I’ve thought about her a lot these last couple months. She had proved to me that someone I knew, someone my age could ride for HTC. She was my role model.
I still can’t believe she’s gone, but I’m thankful that I was able to tell her “congrats” on her accomplishment before she passed. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I’ll miss you, Carla. You would have been one of the few people I knew in Qatar.
