THE PERSON

1989-sur-le-podium-de-ce-tour-de-france-89-le-contraste-est

Although Laurent Fignon (above left) is our favorite rider; we are looking more for the temperament displayed in young LeMond (above right).  M. Fignon was brilliant and exciting, he was also temperamental and vain.

LeMond smiled through a lot of adversity, and let’s not forget who won in ’89.

Look, we understand that the list above is pretty long, and very varied, and don’t expect one person to be experienced in all.  That’s where the Old School Work Ethic kicks in.

Send a short statement of why you want the job along with C.V. to [email protected]

*** HELPFUL TIP: please go down the list above and report back ***

Daniel Brazil Jun 05, 2020

As a cyclist (and bike crash attorney), I often worry that I’m placing my life in the hands of motorists each time I hop on my bike. And stories like this one about bike safety recently shared on Outside Online heighten my fears, as cyclist deaths continue to rise across the U.S. even in a […]

Biking After COVID 5
Ann Groninger May 28, 2020

What will biking after COVID be like? Before COVID, it seemed like there was a handful of people in my city who rode bikes to get places, and we all knew each other. We’ve always had a robust recreational road riding community of people who gather after work and on weekends to head out to […]

If you’ve ridden a bike anywhere in Atlanta, chances are you’ve met Atlanta bike advocate Angel Poventud.  If you’ve stopped for a post-ride beer, been to an important advocacy event, or to any major Atlanta gathering, chances are you have met Angel Poventud.   It may only seem that Angel is everywhere, but when you […]
