About Austin Carroll

Hey, here are some things that you need to know about ME. Austin Carroll is my name and I am a professional cyclist. I live in the OC in a town called Orange I have been riding bikes for as long as I can remember. I started BMX when I was a little guy, but it all really started out on the road when I was 12. I would go on road rides with my grandma and uncle. My grandma still rides to this day, kool huh!! Fast Forward a year or so. At the end of 8th grade I got a job at Switchback a bike shop near my house. This is where I learned how to race MTB every Tuesday and Thursday. The owner Tim would push me around showing me what a bike can really do. Tim is a good friend that helps me all the time. FF, around the end of 9th and beginning of 10th I got on Devo/Balance Bar. I raced for John Kemp for 3 years. After my first elite tracks nats I signed with RockRacing. That’s the short version about me.This blog is for Family,Friends and THE FANS. you will read my latest races,stories,adventures!

Thank you

    Looks like Rock Racing is the best pro team to race for in terms of perks. Who the hell wants free Liquigas or Discovery Channel DVDs??

  6. Chris says:

    Hey man,

    Saw you guys at the CSC. Congrats on the successes you and the team are having. You’re definitely getting noticed for both yor riding and the way you roll.

    So like everyone else is asking – Where the hell can I get a jersey?

  11. Hi Austin!
    You “cool” grandma was just on our Holland Bike and Barge trip and I think I know where you get your “good” genes from!
    She is a terrific cyclist and not to mention very nice lady.
    Anyway- she always talks about you and it’s quite evident that she’s extremely proud of your accomplishment. She told us to look-up your blog- so here we are for a visit and to give you kudos for making it on the pro-Euro racing circuit!

    Hey Austin – Looks like life is treating you pretty well these days! You look great. Allyson says Hi She still wants you to come to school so you can talk to her class! The family picture is still in her bedroom. We would love to come see you race sometime let us know your schedule and if close by MI or IL we could probably make it. Is that Pete’s dog in the picture? We are very proud of you and hope to hear from you soon. Our home e-mail address is: madonnac4@comcast.net. Take care of yourself and stay healthy! Madonna, Brian and Allyson
