As a participant in local road races and marathons Joel had no exposure to cycling until he was recovering from a knee injury. A friend suggested he take up cycling and was immediately taken by the feel of lycra and the company of other middle aged men. Having survived some hammerfests Joel decided to try racing. He is looking forward to competing in cyclocross and gravel in the near future.
Outside of cycling, he is also married and a father of 2 teenaged boys.
