Louis’ journey began in 2006 as a sedentary American man soon turning 40 years old, faced with the task of losing 50kg and seeded with dreams of state jerseys and UCI international competition.
The daily 5km dashes turned into century charity rides, 25km time trials and weekend stage racing.
Missing the Blue Mountain Village Time Trial event last year due to illness, this year Louis arrived with the resolution and commitment to train and qualify for Perth. Careful training, preparation and planning put him on the start line at the Tour of Cambridgeshire Chrono, earning his spot on the 2016 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships Perth - Time Trial.
It’s with great satisfaction, pride and honour that Louis will wear the USA colors on September 1st, fulfilling his long held dream.
