Garmin-Sharp Signs Nathan Brown
garmin-sharplogo Team Garmin-Sharp today announced it has signed two-time American U23 National TT Champion, Nathan Brown, for 2014. The 21-year-old hails from Covington, Tennessee, and in addition to winning the 2013 U23 National TT championship, he finished 2nd in the U23 National Road Race Championship.

“It was a easy decision for me to join Team Garmin-Sharp,” said Brown. “The moment I talked to Jonathan Vaughters I knew this was the team I wanted to be on. Ever since I was a junior I watched his team in the Tour de France, and I knew one day that I wanted to ride for them. It’s a dream come true and I’m so excited to race for Team Garmin-Sharp next season.”

Brown’s goals for next season are focused on learning and being a good teammate: “my goal for next season is to learn as much as I can. There are so many great riders on the team and I am looking forward to any advice they can give me. I would love to come back and possibly do some of the USA races; being a young American that would be an amazing opportunity, but my focus is on learning everything I can and being a good teammate at Garmin-Sharp.”

2013 has been a standout year for Brown, who won the Points and Best Young Rider classifications at the Tour de Beauce in addition to winning the U23 National TT Championships (marking his second time winning the title in three years).

“One of our founding goals is develop the next generation of cycling champions and that makes Nate a perfect fit for our team,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Team Garmin-Sharp. “He is a talented rider on the road and in time trials, and we look forward to working with him next year. He’ll be another great, young addition to our squad.”

2013 1st Overall, Points Classification Champion, Best Young Rider, Tour de Beauce
