I began my international racing career on
Cervélo with the HotTubes Junior Development team, so its nice to come full circle with them.”

King’s Palmares include Best Young Rider, Tour of Beijing (2011); 9th National TT Championships (2011); 1st, National Professional Road Race Championships (2010) 1st, National U23 Road Race Championships (2010), 1st, National U23 Criterium Championships (2010), 1st Panamerican Road Championships (2010); 1st Panamerican Time Trial Championships (2010) and 3rd overall at the Coupe des Nations (2010).
