Introducing Two of my Astellas Teammates


Ryan Aitcheson is 25, and from Kitchener, Ontario (Canada). He is one of the best criterium racers in North America. He is also my longest standing teammate, it’s been four years now.

You’d never guess what he was capable of doing in a race if you met him on the street or just out riding. He’s stop, say hi, invite you for coffee and probably pay for it for you too.

Actually there is a caveat there; he’d only pay if he deemed the coffee good enough. If Ryan has one flaw, it’s that he’s a coffee snob! He’ll be the first to tell you.

There are great roads right in front of my apartment in Mojacar, Spain. But there are (and I don’t say this lightly) some of the world’s best roads about one hour’s drive away. In particular, a climb called Velefique.
