Pro Cycling on $10 a Day

From Fat Kid to Euro Pro - Phil Gaimon


Phil Gaimon has no business being a professional cyclist.

Inexplicably abandoning his former life as a couch potato and gamer, Gaimon begin riding a bicycle in 2004 with the grand ambition of shedding a few pounds. By sheer accident, he discovered he was a natural, advancing so rapidly through the amateur ranks that he entered the pro peloton utterly ignorant of a century of cycling etiquette.

During the 2013 season, Gaimon was recruited from the minor leagues to join Team Garmin-Sharp, the moneyball-style, ragtag cycling team of anti-doping advocates that rides at the topmost levels of elite cycling.

In his story Pro Cycling on $10 a Day, Gaimon wields the full powers of his sardonic wit to present a witty, hand-me-down guide to American bike racing.

Phil Gaimon is a professional cyclist who rides for Team Garmin-Sharp. He is a writer and entrepreneur who retired from laziness and computer games in 2004 in favour of riding a bike to lose weight. Gaimon maintains a blog,, on which he chronicles his ceaseless pursuit of the best cookies and milk in America.
