Early Memory

At age 3, I insisted that my parents take the training wheels off my bike so I could keep up with my 5-year-old friend. I remember loving the feeling of speed and freedom. The training wheels never went back on.

Bio

My name is Andre Gagnon and I am an athlete specializing in Road Cycling from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Road Cycling is a multi-dimensional sport that is a good fit for my diverse athletic interests. It provides the challenge I need to stay focused while enabling me to build upon the mental and physical skills I attain as a committed and life-long athlete.

Last summer, my uncle gave me a heavy steel road bike and said, “Go knock yourself out!” This gift enabled me to discover a new passion and a year later, I was competing in a 115km race on that same bike!
The great thing about cycling is that it combines health related fitness with skill related fitness – It challenges me to get better.

The key to success in road cycling is to be open minded, adventurous and optimistic.
