Jonathan Canfield

37 Jahre

Der allererste US-Boy im Team

Ein gewisser Lance Armstrong und „kaputte Knochen“ sind daran schuld, dass Jonathan Canfield heute begeistert Rad fährt. Denn vor über zwölf Jahren zwangen ständige Verletzungen den damals gerade 25-jährigen US-Amerikaner seine Passion, den Straßenlauf, aufzugeben. Und da zu dieser Zeit Armstrong eines der Sportidole in den USA war, kam der Jurist zu seinem neuen Ausdauersport – und ist seitdem süchtig danach. Aktiv wie passiv, denn er verfolgt den Werdegang vieler US-amerikanischer Radprofis und ist auch ein großer, „wenn nicht sogar der größte Fan von Team Katusha Alpecin-Profi Ian Boswell“, wie er selbst betont. Um zu wissen, was die Profis leisten müssen, ist er auch schon mehrmals in Frankreich Rad gefahren und hat mythische Anstiege wie den Col d‘Izoard oder den Mont Ventoux erklommen. Was ihm noch fehlt auf seiner Bucket-List? Die 21 Kehren hinauf nach Alpe d‘Huez und natürlich die L‘Etape du Tour.

  • Big thank you to @chriscarmichael1960 and the whole @cts_trainright crew for the unexpected gift that arrived in the mail today. Honestly, having the opportunity to participate in CTS’s bucket list experience and riding the stages of the @amgentoc before the pros set out each day is truly a once in a lifetime experience. The level of organization and the professionalism of the whole CTS team is second to none - from pre-ride briefings, stage support and post-ride massages - it is really like being a pro for a week!  This certainly won’t be my last bucket list experience with CTS. Anyone down for #parisroubaix next year?! #alpecin #alpecincycling #escapethecake #cycling #cyclinglife #instacycling #bicycle #bicycleporn #letapedutour #teamkatushaalpecin #cyclingteam #bicycle #instabicycle #cyclingphotos #cyclingshots #roadbike #bikestagram #roadcycling #cyclingpics #livetoride #cyclingaddict #bicycling #cyclingphotography #cyclingmotivation #cyclingadventures #canyonbikes #pinarello #cts_trainright #california #sacramento
  • As the 50th anniversary of the #apollo11 launch and #moonlanding are fast approaching, I’ve started to reflect on what this nation and @nasa we’re able to accomplish a half century ago - especially when this country was able to put political differences aside in pursuit of a unified goal of landing a man on the moon before the start of the #1970s. It is really quite incredible when you stop to reflect on the accomplishment - surely one of the greatest feats of #humankind.  I am also the proud owner of a little piece of #rocket history. This Titan launch panel was saved by a former employee of the Martin Company, Mr. Colin “Red” Harrison. Mr. Harrison joined the Martin Marietta Company in Denver, CO after working for the engine integration office for Aerojet.  Mr. Harrison then became test stand manager, chief of test, project manager for the integration of the Titan ICBM into the Strategic Air Command inventory.  In 1961 he was transferred to the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas, to be the company project manager for the Gemini Program.  He was a close personal friend of many of the #projectgemini astronauts and one of the key people responsible for the success of the program. This panel is from the early 1960s and is associated with the Titan 1/Atlas launch systems. #nasa #space #johnsonspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter #apollo11 #rockets  #astronaut #spacetravel #1960s #1969
  • Huge thank you to the 1988 World Champion @mauriziofondriest for autographing the photograph and cycling cards!  Not only is he a #cyclinglegend - besides being World Champion, in 1993 he won Milan–San Remo, La Flèche Wallonne, the Züri-Metzgete, the Giro dell'Emilia, the general classification and two stages of Tirreno–Adriatico, three stages and the general classification of the Grand Prix du Midi Libre, a stage in the Giro d'Italia and the overall World Cup - but Maurizio is also one of the nicest and most generous people you could ever hope to meet or have the opportunity to ride with!  Mille grazie!  #alpecin #alpecincycling #escapethecake #cycling #cyclinglife #instacycling #bicycle #bicycleporn #letapedutour #teamkatushaalpecin #cyclingteam #bicycle #instabicycle #cyclingphotos #cyclingshots #roadbike #bikestagram #roadcycling #cyclingpics #livetoride #cyclingaddict #bicycling #cyclingphotography #cyclingmotivation #cyclingadventures #canyonbikes #fondriestbici #fondriest
  • It was 3 months ago today, after first learning I was one of the lucky few (and the first American) selected by @alpecincycling for the 2019 #teamalpecin, that I began my year living and training like a pro. But Alpecin does so much more than just support both the World Tour @katushacycling team and our amateur offshoot in our cycling endeavors - it also encourages each of us to live a healthier and more active lifestyle, hence the #escapethecake slogan. Since being selected, I’ve tried to make the most out of this once in a lifetime opportunity and really train hard and live better. Under the watchful eye of our coach @flowolfgeyer and director sportif Jörg Ludewig, my tailored training program has really paid off. And the proof is obvious. On April 4 (left side), I was 188lbs. Today (right side), a mere 3 months later, I am 164lbs. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings, but first, bring on L’Étape!  #alpecin #alpecincycling #escapethecake #cycling #cyclinglife #instacycling #bicycle #bicycleporn #letapedutour #teamkatushaalpecin #cyclingteam #bicycle #instabicycle #cyclingphotos #cyclingshots #roadbike #bikestagram #roadcycling #cyclingpics #livetoride #cyclingaddict #bicycling #cyclingphotography #cyclingmotivation #cyclingadventures #canyonbikes #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #weightloss #weightlossjourney

  • Another great weekend of riding around NYC! The more time I spend on the @canyon Endurace CF SLX, the more I love this bike.  Of course, having the @sramroad red 12 speed AXS makes this a beast!  Thanks to @alpecincycling for the never ending support. #teamalpecin #alpecin #alpecincycling #escapethecake #cycling #cyclinglife #instacycling #bicycle #bicycleporn #newyorkcity #teamkatushaalpecin #liveyourdreams #bicycle #instabicycle #cyclingphotos #cyclingshots #roadbike #bikestagram #roadcycling #cyclingpics #livetoride #cyclingaddict #bicycling #cyclingphotography #cyclingmotivation #cyclingadventures #wahoo #wahooligan #nyc #graffiti #gcninspiration
