Always eager to make an impact for his teammates, Sean Quinn is excited to don the Hagens Berman Axeon colors again for his second year.
“Joining Hagens Berman Axeon and turning professional marked an important step in my career as a bike racer,” said Quinn. “Joining one of the top development programs in the world meant that I would have incredible support to improve as a rider.”
In 2018, he earned a 9th place finish at LVM Saarland Trofeo and two 7th place finishes at Tour du Pays de Vaud and Course de la Paix Juniors. Since Quinn capped off the season with a top 10 result at the Junior World Road Race Championships in Innsbruck, Austria, he has continued to set his sights higher.
In 2019, the 19-year-old from Los Angeles, California placed 2nd in the youth classification at both Le Triptyque des Monts et Châteaux and the Giro Ciclistico d'Italia. Quinn also earned a place on the podium on stage 3 at Circuit des Ardennes International. He went on to an impressive overall finish at the Tour of Yorkshire finishing 23 overall against some of the World Tour’s best.
“I hope to improve my capacity so that I can begin to compete while also helping the team in longer races,” said Quinn. “I want to gain as much high level racing experience as I can. I’d say that the race I am looking forward to the most in 2020 is the baby Giro and I also just look forward to spending a lot of time with the squad at the races. It is always super fun.”
