Team Byte Technology | GTR

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

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.

From his motorcycle racing days, Leisner has a total right hip replacement, and he has been a Type 1 diabetic since age 10. He chronicles his experiences as a diabetic elite athlete at www.andyleisner.com.

Leisner is a partner in motorsports management firm Hardcard, as well as co-owner of timing and scoring company Hardcard Systems. He resides in Pebble Beach with his wife and three children.

Terry Low

Terry Low - Vice President

Terry has been on the GTR team since 2009 and quickly become a morning regular on the training rides. His first race was Ghost Tree Racing's signature Butterfly Criterium followed by a local CCCX Cat 5 circuit race in which he came in 8th. He also ranked 53rd out of 910 at the 2011 Gran Fondo San Diego. Terry represents GTR both in Pebble Beach and Skakopee, Minnesota.

Terry currently serves as 2011 Vice President and both built and manages the official Ghost Tree Racing website.
