It seems like only yesterday. Sean showed up to a group ride on a 40 pound 29er, crashed, got lost, and disappeared. He was hooked. Now, he’s one of the fastest riders in the state and has developed a taste for gravel, adventure, and a really good croissant. Whenever he isn’t slinging coffee at Brew, he’s breaking hearts and dropping watts for 3T Q+M. Name: Sean Kickbush
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Years Racing: Five
Best Result in 2018: Cherry-Roubaix. The result doesn’t always reflect the effort, and that was just a brutal race. Belgian Waffle has to be up there, too.
Biggest goal for 2019: Iceman Cometh Challenge.
Favorite riding partner: Juan Mo Time, for all the adventures.
