“We do things differently here at EF Education First, and for me that’s the biggest draw. I love being part of a team that sets itself apart from the rest of the pack.”
Lawson calls his cycling specialty the ability to suffer. He sustained a high-profile scapula fracture on the opening stage of the 2018 Tour de France, and captivated audiences worldwide as he raced all the way to the Tour’s conclusion in Paris as the race’s Lanterne Rouge. En route to Paris, he raised $350,000+ for Houston’s Hurricane Harvey battered Alkek Velodrome, where he first learned to race. These days, Lawson has a new source of inspiration, his one-year-old daughter CJ.
