Our riders are a few of Monterey Peninsula's most dedicated cyclists. Weekly training starts at 5:30 a.m.
Here’s a sample of the talent on the team:
Andy Leisner - President
Andy Leisner is President of Ghost Tree Racing and races Masters road, mountain and cyclocross events. A former professional motorcycle racer, Leisner enjoys bicycle racing for competition, fitness and fun. 2011 will see Leisner compete in the CCCX Cross Country Series, Northern California road events including the Sea Otter Classic as well as the CCCX and Surf City Cyclocross Series.
