Greg was born in Sylva, NC, a town of 2,500. The town was named after a Danish handyman. The Fugitive and parts of Deliverance were filmed there. Before he focused strictly on road racing he divided his time between cycling, running, and swimming–he was once a triathlete.

Throughout the 2015 USA Pro Challenge, Manual for Speed will be following the Axeon Cycling junior development team because we think cycling development is critically important and woefully under appreciated, especially in the United States. In order to help you familiarize yourself with these young bucks, we spent some time with the guys before the race asking questions and taking photos in their finely appointed Steamboat Springs condos.
