Jose Manuel “Chepe” Garcia from the Spanish team Caisse D’Epargne in the Cancer Council Helpline Classic. Tour Down Under warm up stage.
A fast, aggressive rider and mid-mountain specialist, he races to win and is not easily intimidated. He grew up watching his father, an amateur cyclist in Mexico. Like his father, he is a fierce competitor. For Garcia, earning a spot on the Toyota-United roster with some of the world’s top cyclists means only one thing – responsibility – to do what’s asked of him and give his all on every ride to make his team the best.
