My name is Tyler Jordan and I am a thirty-year-old multi-sport athlete from the small town of Jasper, GA. I’m a fan of beer, bikes, burritos, and outdoor activities. I’m always up for an adventure; especially if it involves some sort of cycling or running in a new place. My days usually start with a good coffee, exploring new places on two wheels with friends, and ends with a cold beer.
My cycling background started in BMX when I was just a little kid. In high school, I got my first “high end” mountain bike where I cruised the local trails in Georgia building up my bike handling skills. In college, while pursuing a cross country scholarship, I got injured and found my way back to the bike. My employer, Lifetime Bikes, saw potential and hooked me up with another mountain bike. I started racing the local and regional scene winning most of the events.
It wasn’t until college that I attended my first triathlon as a spectator. The drive to compete in the sport set in and I tried lap swimming for the first time at the age of 22 in 2010. I ended up having great success racing as an “Age Grouper” throughout the first three years and received my Pro-License in 2014. Fast forward to 2015 where I moved across the country to Arizona to expand my race portfolio on the West coast and explore my relationship with my now wife.
