Here we go, my first attempt at a blog. First, I should introduce myself. My name is Ron Amos and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada with my wife and daughter. I’ve been a firefighter for 28 years and currently a fire station Captain. I have always enjoyed the challenge of competing in endurance sports, transitioning from running to adventure racing to my current interest of road race cycling. My goal is to hold onto my health and fitness for as long as possible as ‘Father Time’ does his thing with me; bicycle racing is my current solution.
This year I joined the Hammer/53×11 45+ Masters Road Race Team. The team’s main sponsor is Hammer Nutrition. The squad has a number of road cycling US State Champions, two American National Champions, and a World Champion. Myself, I was fortunate to claim the Canadian National Time Trial Championship last year as well as the Canadian Criterium Title. To that end, Hammer/53×11 graciously created a unique race kit for me with the Canadian Maple Leaf displayed on the cuffs of the jersey and shorts, an unexpected surprise.
I’m also privileged to be a Hammer Nutrition Canadian Ambassador. Which means I get the opportunity to pass along the added benefits of using Hammer Nutrition products for training and competing in cycling.
