Adam Jamieson has always loved riding his bike and over time he started to believe he could do it for a living. That dream has begun to come to fruition. He achieved a career highlight in 2013 when he won the Youth Classification at Le Trophée Centre Morbihan, a stage race that was part of the UCI Junior Nations Cup. After competing at the UCI World Junior Road Championships in 2013, he went to the 2014 UCI World Junior Track Championships where he was part of the team pursuit that finished eighth. Jamieson is a member of Cycling Canada’s NextGen Track Endurance program. Similar to programs already in use by track cycling powerhouses Australia and Great Britain, the goal is to create a men’s endurance program that will be ready to compete for medals at the 2020 Olympic Games.
