Volkswagen is sponsoring six-times Cyclocross National Champion Tim Johnson, working with him to "support cycling beyond racing."
"VW - and Cyclocross - are about the simple joy of the journey," says Johnson, "I think the reason why Cyclocross especially resonates with me is because you're riding the bike in a way that it isn't really designed for. It's like every kid's dream of leaving their neighborhood and going through that vacant lot... to get to another place."
Beyond VW performance lies a simple premise: love the ride. From cycling to driving, bikes to vehicles, VW makes it more than the race. In the words of Tim Johnson, "I know myself, that the end-all, be-all isn't that result, it's the race."
