|Tim Johnson is a six-time national cyclocross champion, having won three elite national championships, a pair of Espoirs national championships and a junior national championship. Tim was the first ever American rider to stand on a UCI World Championships podium when he earned a silver medal at the 1999 World Championships in Poprad, Slovakia.
Tim has been a key member of the Cannondale prepared by Cyclocrossworld.com team since its inception, and has been working with Managing Director Stu Thorne since his first days in cyclocross. Johnson has a US Gran Prix of Cyclocross overall title to his name and won three-straight national championships between 1998 and 2000. In his first attempt as an elite rider, in 2000, Johnson earned his first elite national championship.
Johnson is an accomplished road racer, having raced previously for powerhouse American road teams, including Healthnet and Jittery Joes, and even plied his trade across the Atlantic, racing for Saunier Duval for a season. Johnson has since devoted himself purely to cyclocross, becoming the first rider of his generation to call himself primarily a cyclocross racer.
