SPECIALITY: TECH / CRITERIUM
Since the gift
Since the gift of his first mountain bike at age 8, Evan Hartig hasn’t gotten off two wheels. A product of the Midwestern U.S. racing scene, he’ll be undertaking his debut Red Hook season after taking the line at countless mountain bike, cyclocross, criterium and road races over the past 15 years. The 2016 season saw Hartig take top 10’s on stages of the Tour of the Gila and the North Star Grand Prix, followed by a 2017 national championship win in the Collegiate Criterium. An athlete who excels in technical and sketchy races, his initiation into fixed gear racing should be one to watch. An unrelenting diesel, watch for him up the road in breakaways and riding in support of his sprinters Brandon Feehery and Jake Silverberg.
