Men Conclude 2015 Season Atop UCI America Tour Standings

As another year of international racing concludes, the men of Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies celebrate a new achievement – finishing their season as the top-ranked team on the UCI America’s Tour (AT) standings. The AT encompasses the top UCI races in the Western Hemisphere, and is the closest measure of the best teams and athletes in North and South America. Performance Director Jonas Carney called the 2015 season the team’s best ever, with consistency and stand out performances from their first races in Portugal in February and March through a grueling sequence of stage racing in the heat of summer.


What event or person inspired you to take up cycling and why?

My dad, because he couldn't ride himself.

What was your first memorable and meaningful experience on a bike?

Trying to manage my old '80s walk-man and my bike all at the same time, I almost lost two fingers when I fell on the pavement.
