Lucas Euser won the 2008 Univest Grand Prix in torrential conditions which showed how tough a racer he could be. However, it wasn’t just a race that showed his physical toughness.
In 2009 while out training Lucas Euser of Garmin-Transitions (now Garmin-Sharp) hit a car, breaking two ribs and shattering his patella. After months of rehabilitation he was once again racing his bike. During the off-season he transferred to the Canadian team SpiderTech. At the time he was still on the road to recovery and the squad allowed him the opportunity to come back to full strength with the goal of racing, once again, in Europe.
2011 Euser returned to an early season European campaign in Italy and France before returning to the States for the Tour of Utah and the USA Pro Cycling Challenge where he finished in 24th place on the general classification. The 2012 season again started in Europe with races in France, Spain and Italy. An addition to his European racing calendar was the Amgen Tour of California. During the Queen stage of Mt Baldy, Euser got into a large break that contained defending champion Chris Horner. Ultimately the break was caught but it showed that Euser was again riding strong.
With USA Pro Cycling Challenge in his home state and with a stage finishing in his hometown of Boulder, Euser will be motivated to ride.
