Senior Mentor Squad

Ryan Pesch

Ryan returns for 2018, his third season with the team. Ryan is a former elite-level sailor, having been a member of the 2013 US National Sailing Team Sperry Topsider where he competed in qualifiers for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He retired from competitive sailing soon after but found a continued competitive outlet in cycling. After finding himself in the lead group on Stage 3 of the 2014 Green Mountain Stage Race, finishing fifth on the stage and seventh overall, he has continued to prove to be a successful rider in multiple disciplines, having completed the grueling Leadville 100 MTB race in Colorado, as well as an invaluable teammate. He is currently a financial analyst for TJX Companies and enjoys the flexibility that the job gives him for riding. Ryan is an avid motorsports fan and golfer, and continues to sail in his free time. He’ll be looking to gain multiple podiums in 2018, both on the road and on dirt and we’re excited to see him return.
