The Owens Healthcare Cycling Team Newsletter is back from its extended vacation!


This edition brings you up-to-date with what the Owens Healthcare Cycling Team has been doing, and features our youngest, most successful rider who has been tearing up the roads and trails in 2013.


We hope you are having a wonderful summer, and enjoying the trails and roads on your two-wheeled, self-propelled vehicles. 


And as always, keep the rubber side down!

  Team Happenings 
Crit Monsters Mike and Wild Bill
Once again, Tour de France organizers missed their opportunity to have the Blue Train grace the roads of France during July, leaving Sky and Chris Froome without a serious challenger. But their loss is the Northstate's gain, as Owens riders turned in many excellent performances in the region.
Ride info, race updates, and more are posted regularly.

Featured Rider and Up-and-Coming Star


Jordan Anderson is the Owens Healthcare Cycling Team's youngest and most promising member. Jordan
 started cycling in middle school, riding the westside trails with friends. Hooked by the adrenaline rush, and enjoying staying in shape while having fun, he has been cycling ever since. 
Jordan has shown exceptional talent in several cycling disci plines, including mountain biking, cyclocross, and on the road (cross racing is his current favorite). Throughout 2013, he has had stellar results in races as different as the Landpark Criterium and the Downieville Downhill. Peter Sagan - watch out!

Besides having a blast cycling and seeing where it takes him, Jordan plans to earn Bachelors degree in a medical field, and eventually become a firefighter. He enjoys almost any outside activity (especially if it involves wheels or a board), and hanging out with friends.
Jordan thanks his family and friends, Owens Healthcare and its cycling team members, and Chain Gang Bike Shop for their support.
Favorite quote: "Never look back, and never think twice."
