A serious threat to the podium at nearly any venue
At 21 years old Cole House grabbed 7th place at the U23 Tour of Flanders. The following 2009 season Cole became the first American ever to win Belgium’s prestigious U23 GP Waregem, thereby solidifying his status as a hardened rider.
After rising through the ranks with the help of USA Cycling’s U23 Development team, Cole earned a spot on BMC Racing’s Pro Team. The invitation to BMC not only made the 22 year-old Wisconsin native a hometown celebrity, but a serious threat to the podium at nearly any venue.
Cole excels in one-day races and can sprint with the best, but never count him out of contention during a grueling stage race or fast-paced circuit race especially over pave in nasty weather. Cole is the first Native American professional cyclist.
