On Monday March 12, USA Cycling USA Cycling made the announcement that one of our own was selected to represent the good ole US of A at the 2012 Pan American Continental Championships the first week of April 2012 in Puebla, Mexico. Team BGB-Mountain Khakis Pro Max Morgan will be joining an all-star Team USA cast as one of six including Neko Mulally, Brian Buell, Logan Mulally, Joey Schusler, and J.D. Swanguen.

"I am very thankful for this opportunity and am I am looking forward to meeting new people and having a good time. It will be a great experience to race with some of our nation's best and I hope I can put in a solid result."

Max, at the ripe young age of 19, is moving into his second year both as a Pro and as a member of Team BGB-Mountain Khakis. “I have been riding bikes for as long as I can remember. The first day rode a bike of any kind, I ended up ripping my training wheels off. That same day, my mom tells me a built a jump in the driveway and showed no fear.” Fast forward 15 years, “I have raced one full season in the Pro Category after moving up from the junior ranks. I am looking forward to a successful season in 2012…… what better way to get the ball rolling this season then to race the Continental Championships in Mexico.”

When not shreddin, Max is student of Mechanical Engineering at Elon University and also has two other “passions in life”: cars and hockey. “I grew up loving all types of cars. My dad is the original owner of a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle that’s he’s owned since he was 16. I think I love that car just as much as he does and I hope that someday it will become mine. Also, when I was 9 years old I started playing hockey with my younger brother Sam and haven't looked back since. I have been lucky enough to travel across the US getting some great opportunities to play in all levels of roller hockey tournaments. Currently, I play Division II club ice hockey at Elon University. I really enjoy it and our team had a great year in 2011.”

We will all be rooting for Max wearing his stars and stripes from afar….. We wish we all could be there. Rip It My Friend!
