“In cyclocross, I focused only myself – my training, my racing, my results. In the WorldTour, my mindset changed completely. All my efforts go into helping my team leader. When I think about myself, it’s in a ‘what can I do to set him up for the finishes?’ kind of way.”

Logan Owen became the first American to win the U23 Liège-Bastogne-Liège in 2017. A 10-time cyclocross national champion, Logan gave up ‘cross in 2016 in pursuit of a WorldTour contract.

His approach earned him a spot on EF Education First–Drapac p/b Cannondale last season. Team boss Jonathan Vaughters was attracted to Logan’s ability to win races creatively and with tactical intelligence rather than pure strength.

Logan considers himself a classics specialist and dreams of one day winning the elite Liège-Bastogne-Liège. In the meantime, he’s happy to soak up every experience he’s offered during his sophomore WorldTour season.
