ABOUT ME

RANDY CATRON

"So, I just finished a 60-mile gravel race with several of my good friends. That's why I'm smiling and have dirt on my face. The only thing better than me riding and racing is helping others learn to have as much fun as me!"

I have been "seriously" having fun on my bike since I was a teenager and started doing centuries, and riding RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). I started racing in 1994 doing crits, road races, time trials, cyclocross, and an occasional mountain bike race. I still compete, participate in charity and tour rides, and most importantly have an opportunity to help others have as much fun on their bike(s) as me. 

I have a special desire to help develop junior riders. My race team in Iowa trained

 numerous junior riders who developed into high category (Cat. 1-2) riders, and also had opportunities to attend college at cycling-oriented schools such as Marian University  

Belmont Abbey College and Ft . Lewis College .

The definition of cycling success varies. Often it is measured by winning medals or awards. But for many of us, success means finishing a ride or event, reaching a goal like not getting dropped from a ride group, increasing our power output, or just feeling healthier and better about ourselves. Many riders do not want to race, but most have a personal cycling-related goal they are working toward.
