Last month, Stephen Hyde invited us to his hotel room in Madison to chat about the personalized designs for the Cannondale SuperX triplets he is riding this year. You can read more about those bikes in the three-in-one profile we posted on Thursday.

Since we had a few extra minutes with Hyde before what was supposed to be his big weekend in Waterloo, we took advantage of the opportunity to ask him some more questions about being the twice-defending champ and racing with the Stars-and-Stripes jersey. We also asked him about his goals for the next few years, and his roommate Spencer Petrov also makes an appearance.

You can watch the full enhanced video interview below. If you want to take it to go, it is also available via our Soundcloud page.
