Meet the Athlete

Joey's dad had been riding and racing since he was born, so that gave him a natural introduction to bicycles and, once he was a little older, a natural mentor into the sport of racing. From his first endurance rides on B.R.A.G. (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia), to his first interval sessions with Decatur's 6am-at-the-Arches group, he just did his best to keep getting faster from there on out. After racing his way up through the ranks of different teams over the past 15 years, he is most proud of claiming victory in the time trial at the US National Championships, twice. His other racing highlights include top 10 placings in time trials in all three Grand Tours. Joey admits that this sport has been a constant learning process, and he strives to not ever forget to learn, make changes, and improve, year after year.

What is something you would tell your younger self if you could go back in time?

Listen to the old guys that have been successful (in any aspect of life). There's a reason they've made it this far.
