Joe Dombrowski – “I’ll be taking my time with any decisions”


Joe Dombrowski (Bontrager Livestrong & USA) first came to our attention in 2011 when he won a stage and was second on GC in the Valle d’Aosta U23 stage race in Italy.

Aosta, along with the Tour de l’Avenir and Baby Giro are the equivalent of eBay for the professional talent scouts – where quality goods can be picked up at good prices.

Dombrowski’s excellent performances were no flash in the pan; this spring he took third in the tough, high altitude Tour of the Gila in New Mexico and was fourth on the ‘queen’ Mount Baldy stage of the Tour of California – fifth was Tom Danielson and sixth Chris Horner. We interviewed him recently about his ride on Mount Baldy.

But the ride which has really made the emails and phone calls from the big teams start to appear came last week when the 21 year-old from Marshall, Virginia won the GiroBio – or ‘Baby Giro.’

VeloVeritas was on the phone to the man who we think is headed for the very top, as soon as he’d had a good night’s sleep in his own bed.
