An accomplished cross-country skier from El Jebel, CO, Keegan has also been featured in multiple parkour videos. He beat Lance Armstrong at the 2012 Power of Four mountain bike race in Snowmass. His albino gecko, Geico, has been with him since second grade. Unfortunately, Keegan is still suffering repercussions of a recently sustained head injury and he will not be able to be race in this year’s USA Pro Challenge.
Fun Facts with Keegan
Favorite Movie/Video Game:
American Pie Reunion
Making a wish at 11:11. (Klaus Note: Numerologists believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than can be explained by chance or coincidence.)
If you weren't a cyclist, what would you be?
Chilling in Boulder with the homies.
What do you do when you're bored?
I'm bored a lot. I usually hit up TBS for some Seinfeld and King of Queens.
Gecko, sister, mum, dad and a dog.
Let's say you sign a Pro Tour contract. What's your first financial splurge?
I'd keep my spending pretty light. Perhaps a couple trips to Cici's Pizza Buffet? Only 5.99 for all-you-can-eat pizza and tons of sick desserts. It's quality stuff, we're not talking Little Caesar's cardboard. (Klaus Note: There are approximately 500 franchised and corporately owned Little Caesar’s in 35 states.)
Pizza and ice cream.
My gecko, Geico. <3
If you were a superhero, what would your power be?
What's most surprising about you?
I'm very quiet. Keep to myself most of the time.
The blonde girl (Vicky I believe) from American Pie.
Celebrity Role Model:
Allowing myself to sit on the computer all day, doing nothing.
“If an opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
What's your favorite smoothie!!!???
Ha. Bad idea!
Parkour and filmmaking.
Things you want to ask Axel about his dad, but are too afraid to ask:
Nothing I’m too afraid to ask, but I’d certainly like to hear about any secret training/racing ideas he had back in his day that propelled him to being a god. Or if he was just a freak of nature?
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.
