This season, the Fiera Race Blog is introducing a new feature: the racer profile. This is your chance to meet members of the Race Team, and learn a little bit about what makes them so darn fast.
Our inaugural Racer Profile is on the one and only Jan Plavec. This is the second season that Jan has been with the Fiera Race Team, and he has been one of our most enthusiastic, fun(ny), and fast racers. This year he graciously volunteered to be the “Fiera Rides Coordinator for Western Canada and Northern Territories” (thanks Jan!) and he is set up to take the Alberta cycling scene by storm, after having purchased both a cyclocross and mountain bike in the last 8 months. Watch for him on the podium this year, as this guy can seriously crank out the watts!!
