Biography

"<strong>He may have earned a bronze medal at last year's junior world time trial championships, but Ian Garrison will tell you he can do more than just excel in races against the clock.</strong>

"The time trial is where I have had most of my success," he said, "but I like to think I am an all-arounder. I can climb fairly well. I have won a sprint stage. So I consider myself an all-arounder."

As one of eight riders new to the [Axeon Cycling] team and being in his first Under 23 season, Garrison said he will be anxious to take on a learning role. But he also has a few goals in mind.

"As a first-year rider in the U23 ranks, you usually grow into bigger races," he said. "The Tour of Utah would be something I would like to do, or really any and all of the big American races. Plus, the "Baby Giro" in Italy (Girobio) is back. So I want to learn from the races I get to do."
