Now, Joe Cahoon isn't officially a team member for Team TOMS Shoes, but he is what we like to call a Friend of Team TOMS. This guy has the right attitude, loads of talent and is just an all around great guy to get to know. I've had the privilege to ride with him and more importantly, get to know Joe. Joe supports Team TOMS and Team TOMS has much support for Joe!
Joe is an artist and writer who happens to know a lot about breaking bicycles! He makes his living testing bikes and equipment for Specialized Bicycles. Joe also has a very cool line of water bottles and socks..when he gets a website up and running...I'll be sure to link it on the blog.
When I was living, working and riding in Northern California, Joe was one of the first to welcome me there and I feel honored to call Joe a friend. He's one of those people that have really lived life and continues to do so. Not your typical roadie or competitive cyclist, Joe beats his drum to a rhythm that is proprietary to Joe Cahoon.
Joe hit it big this weekend with wins on Saturday and Sunday in the Senior 3 category. If he keeps up his winning ways it won't be long before Joe is rubbing elbows with those Cat 2 Seniors. I'd like to formally congratulate Joe on his successes this past weekend and his successes as a quality human being! Looking forward to following the rest of your season Joe!
