MacDonald quit her job as a dental hygienist as Sanders’ career took off and now works full-time as his manager, arranging all logistics of his racing and training, managing sponsor contracts and travelling with him around the world to his races. Sanders has said that he “just shows up to races. Erin does the rest.”

We congratulate Sanders and MacDonald and wish them a lifetime of happiness.
