Nathan Haas Reading Shelf

December 4, 2011

In tonight’s TourChats with guest Jonathan Vaughters, Nathan Haas’ name appeared a few times in the chat room. Team Garmin-Cervélo fans might be asking: “And who is Nathan Haas?”

Nathan’s Australian, 22 years-old, and previously competed in mountain biking. He burned up the roads in Australia and Japan in 2011, facing off against top riders as part of the UCI continental Genesys Wealth Advisors Team, in what Nathan called, “essentially my first full-time year on the bike.” In 2012 Nathan will ride for Team Garmin-Cervélo.

After winning this year’s Jayco Herald Sun Tour in Australia, Haas told the Herald Sun, “It’s a really special moment. I don’t feel as if I’m a spectacular rider, but I am part of a spectacular team.” Sounds like he’s made a great match with Garmin-Cervélo.

Learn about Nathan by perusing the following links. Follow him on Twitter, @NathanPeterHaas.

None of these links mention that Haas plays the tenor sax. His favorite jazz musician? “I have to mention Charlie Parker,” he said, at the Garmin-Cervélo 2012 team presentation in Boulder, “and I’d say Grover Washington Junior.” Last link: a short interview with Haas at the team presentation.

Finally, someone is going to have to ask him about the origin of this nickname, “Nate Dizzle.”
