Kevin Hernandez USAC #392832
Residence: Winnetka, CA USA
Racing age: 15-16
Occupation: full time student
RD:04 TK:04 CX:04
Objective: This 2013 my goal is to learn all rules and regulation of track and road cycling and to learn to be a successful rider and a team member. To participate in events locally and to take trips to special events.
My track bike is used daily for training, if not on the track then warming up on the rollers at home. The road bike is used primarily to gain endurance for the long track events. Eventually I will join my team and help them on road races. The coach will let me know when the time comes for me to join the road team.
Outside the track and road cycling I enjoy teaching and getting other kids my age join a healthy challenging sport.

Objectives; since joining the team Lux/Specialized by Cynergy my main goal is to fully integrate and be a team player and start my road career while keeping up with track in my schedule to be a more successful cyclist.
