Ian's Story

Words: Chad Childers Stripes Date: 10 March 2019

Ian 1

He may have earned a bronze medal at the 2016 Junior World Time Trial Championships, but Ian Garrison will tell you he can do more than just excel in races against the clock. "The time trial is where I have had most of my success," he said, "but I like to think I am an all-arounder. I can climb fairly well. I have won a sprint stage. So I consider myself an all-arounder."

The Georgia native found success in Europe in 2018, earning a podium spot on the final stage of Le Triptyque des Monts et Chateaux as well as 6th place finishes on individual time trial stages at Tour de Beauce and Tour de l’Avenir.

Now in his third year with the team, Garrison said his goals for 2019 are somewhat less than orthodox…

“In 2019, I really want to learn how to do more tricks,” said Garrison. “Top of the list is the wheelie. Once I learn that, I want to win a race, do a wheelie across the line, and post a picture on Instagram. Following that is probably hopping up stairs.

More seriously though, I want to continue developing, learning as much as possible and having fun. We’re competing at high level races and I don’t want to let opportunities go to waste where I can learn how to be a better bike racer and teammate. The time trial is a skill that I want to continue to work on and hopefully come away with some solid results.”
