In 2014, Jimmy Day became the first Masters Racer age 50+ to compete in all UCI World Championships and USA Cycling National Championships* in a single year. Racing a different type of bicycle and utilizing a different method of training for each of five disciplines, Jimmy has established himself as a ‘Jack-of-All-Trades’ cyclist, competitive at a national and world level.
Pitting himself against ex-professionals, ex-Olympians, and champions, Jimmy considers himself a member of ‘Team Fred’—just a normal guy who started riding his road bike around the neighborhood a few years ago and got hooked.
Competing in the age sixty to sixty-four bracket, he placed in the top ten in his first four races of this challenge: UCI Masters World Cyclo-Cross, USAC Masters Cyclo-Cross, UCI Tour of Winston-Salem, and USAC Cross-Country Mountain Biking National Championships. He placed 11th in the UCI Masters World Mountain Biking Championships (Lillehammer, Norway); 20th in the UCI Masters World Time Trial Championships, and 39th in the UCI Masters Road Championships (both in Ljubljana, Slovenia). And, back in the USA, another top ten finish: 7th place in the USAC National World Time Trial Championships; 14th in the USAC Masters Road Championships; and 17th in the USAC Criterium Championships (all in Ogden, Utah).
On this website, Jimmy will be blogging about his adventures from time to time. It’s a decathlon!
*Including a qualifier.
