Get To Know Astellas Cycling Team... Max Korus

New for 2014, we are proud to sponsor Astellas Cycling in the team's first year as domestic professionals. Get to know the team: 

Name: Max Korus

Age: 25

Hometown: Elkins Park, Pa

When did you start cycling?

I began cycling competitively in 2010. I was a walk on to the track team at the University of Pennsylvania, but I suffered repeated stress fractures in both of my feet. My roommate at the time was the president of the cycling club and he suggested I give the sport a try.

What do you like about cycling?

I enjoy the competition and the camaraderie.

What do you do outside of cycling? Jobs, hobbies, family? 

In the offseason I work odd jobs, ranging from construction to college admissions consulting. I ski and surf when I have the chance.

When did you start riding with Astellas? 

This will be my second season with the team (I joined in 2013).

How do you feel about becoming a Professional domestic team this year? 

I’m very excited about it. I think the team will have a lot of great opportunities.

What type of racing is your “specialty?” 

Time Trial/ All around.

What races are you excited for this year? 

I’m really looking forward to just about every race the team has on the schedule. If I had to single one out, it would be the Tour de Beauce.

What bike will you be riding this year?
