Hello Juventus,

 

I’m going to try to keep this update short; since unlike some of the other Juventus+ racers, I’ve mainly spent my past few months either slogging it out on the indoor trainer at the clubhouse, or into gale force Alberta headwinds, just like most of you - instead of travelling to exotic locations. However, I can’t complain too much because I did get the chance in early February to travel to Palm Springs for a week long team training camp. I got a chance to meet most of my new teammates, and put in over 1000 kilometres of base while I was there.

 

For those of you who don’t know, I will be racing with the Giant-Langley / SMARTSAVVY cycling project this upcoming season - a U23 development team based out of BC. I am very proud to be able to represent the team this year.

 

The majority of my racing will be at the larger events in BC, but I will still be returning to Alberta for a few events, as well as travelling to races in Quebec, Washington, and Oregon. My biggest goals for the year will be to put in strong rides at Road Nationals and BC Superweek. During my past couple of seasons, I’ve struggled with injuries; this year, so far, I’ve had a very healthy start to the season and the plan is to translate that into results!

 

 

When it comes to my activities off the bike, I try to rest as much as possible; however, I am still going to school full-time. I am in my second year at the University of Alberta in the Faculty of Business.

 

Finally, I need to give a huge thanks of support to all the Juventus members, whether it be the Trackies, the Juniors, or the Masters – all the members I have had the chance to interact with. You have made the riding culture within the club absolutely amazing for a youth rider learning to love racing. I can say with 100% certainty that without the Juventus Cycling Club I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Thanks again for the support,

Lukas
