In the 2017 season, he was thrilled to make it from Cat 5 to Cat 3!

Luiz discovered cycling in 2013 after a friend who was visiting took him to a bike shop in Brooklyn. He decided to give it try and bought a bike a few weeks later. He then did his first grand fondo in support of people with MS (multiple sclerosis) that year and was completely hooked after that. Luiz started racing in 2016 and is now a category 2 racer who just loves to go hard on the bike (even though he still blames his friend for not being a runner as buying a sneaker would have been much cheaper ...).

Cyrus was at a dinner party with friends where everyone was complaining about their bodies getting fat, weak, and breaking down. He decided that very night that enough was enough. There would be no more wine and cheese, no more cake and ice cream. It only remained, in the dawn hours of that dark night of the soul, to find a pursuit worthy of his degree of commitment, deprivation, and self-hatred. So he bought a bike. He immediately began racing in that spring of 2014 and never looked back. He's a founding member of NYCC Racing and loves his team!
