Bryan’s athletic career started as a member of his middle school’s state winning cross country team, he was hooked on endurance sports. Competing in cross country, indoor and outdoor track for 10 years, his running culminated with three years of division one racing at Virginia Tech. He then switched from running to road cycling in 2007 and was key in his team’s successful pursuit of the ACC championship. After graduating college in 2008 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, he further cut his teeth racing in Belgium before returning to race the Pro/Am Domestic circuit, traveling the US for another 6 years. As a contributing member and cycling correspondent of Chicago Athlete since the summer of 2014, Bryan has also recently been concentrating on his artistic and commercial photography practices in Chicago and beyond.
