Ride to Winn

Canadian champion cyclist makes Union College his home


As for Winn’s personal cycling goals, he wants to win another college national championship in either the cross-country or short track event.

Winn said that being a U.S. champion cyclist means as much as it would to be a Canadian champion.

He explained, “It takes a lot of work to win a national championship.” Winn continued, “Canadian schools don’t offer scholarships for sports, so being able to play any sport at a school in the States is a big deal.”

Winn does compete in Canadian cycling events in addition to U.S. events. He races in the Ontario Cup series, and the Canada Cup series. No matter where he races, he looks to his favorite professional cyclists Tom Boonen and Fabian Cancellara for inspiration.
