Jordan Cheyne's career as a pro cyclist ended suddenly and unexpectedly when a training crash had him fighting for his life. His wins at top North America races like Beauce and White Rock, racing internationally and against some of the World Tour's best riders would become chapters in his past, as figuring out life after racing may be his toughest challenge yet.
The Tour of the Gila is on this weekend in New Mexico. Diana Carolina of DNA Pro Cycling team, took a few minutes to share some thoughts on what makes this race event special.
Jordan Cheyne is in his first season with the Project Echelon Racing team after 6 seasons as a professional, including 2 with Jelly Belly and 3 with Elevate/KHS. Jordan is an old friend of PEZ and is back to give us an update on his career and the up-and-coming Tour of the Gila.
After Jason Saltzman's hit and miss 2020 season in Austria, he has bounced back with a new team, Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling, and managed to kick-off 2021 with a good block of training and racing in Turkey. Thinks are looking up for the PEZ blogger.
Season 2020 part 2 was about to kick in, but our man in Austria, Jason Saltzman, made an early start with the Slovenian National time trial championships and the Palten-Ennstal Tour. Racing at last!
Rider Blog - Catching up with Jordan Cheyne: This year was never going to be normal for me, that was decided well before the words “Corona Virus” were ever mentioned on CNN. Last December, I had my big one, the devastating crash that it seems like every professional cyclist endures at least once in their careers.
After what could have been a great Euro season for Jason Saltzman, but we all know what happened, he's back in the US and enjoying his off-season at the beach, in the mountains and with burritos. But it hasn't all been relaxation, work needed to be done and a new team found.
After some ups and down for Jason Saltzman over the last five months in Austria, it's time for a change, or to move on. In this case it's back to California to see what comes up next... and get a burrito. Not the end for Jason, but the start of the next phase.
