RYAN AITCHESON SIGNS WITH FIRST IN­TER­NET BANK P/B K S EN­ERGY

Pedal Magazine - - Out In Front -

Ryan Aitcheson will ride with the First In­ter­net Bank p/b K S En­ergy team. Aitcheson be­came the first Cana­dian to win the USA Crits Se­ries over­all af­ter a suc­cess­ful 2016 cam­paign. The move fol­lows the an­nounce­ment ear­lier this sea­son that Aitcheson's as­so­ci­a­tion with Astel­las Pro Cycling would not be con­tin­u­ing past the con­clu­sion of the 2016 sea­son.

“I talked with many teams – a pro­gram with top ath­letes fo­cus­ing on hit­ting the top Crits is ac­tu­ally hard to find. I looked and found a smaller team with great guys, great ath­letes who have the drive to race 70+ times a year at Crits. Couldn't be more ex­cited to join a pro­gram like that,” said Aitcheson.

First In­ter­net Bank p/b K S En­ergy is an Elite am­a­teur-cycling team based in Fish­ers, Ind. with a ros­ter of rid­ers from across the Mid­west. The squad is cap­tained by rid­ers Paul Martin and Ryan Knapp, whom Aitcheson had been team­mates with be­fore while racing for the Pan­ther p/b Com­pet­i­tive Cy­clist pro­gram.
