Jelly Belly’s Nick Reistad running for Rider Representative position

Editor's Note: In the last two weeks, VeloNews.com has published letters from pro racer Fred Rodriguez, urging his fellow pros to vote for Michael Ball for the position of at-large member of the USPRO Board of Trustees and a letter from Team Type 1 director Ed Beamon, who is running against Ball for the position. Today we are publishing a letter from Nick Reistad of the Jelly Belly team, who is running for the USPRO rider representative position. Other candidates and supporters are welcome to submit letters.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

By the end of this week, voting closes for your new USA Cycling Board of Trustees. I am running for the USPro Rider Representative so I can bring about positive change.

By casting your vote for me, you will be saying “I want to help change USA Cycling for the better.”

A time has come to take control of our own careers. I am the voice of change. We need to focus on issues like rider safety, health insurance, and protecting our interests as professional cyclists.
To accomplish these tasks, it will be important to hear your concerns and thoughts on each topic. I am open to different ideas and viewpoints, and want to make decisions armed with all the perspectives I will be representing.

I will achieve my goals by working closely with other members of the Board and with USA Cycling staff to bring about these necessary changes.

For more information on my candidacy, visit youtube.com to watch a brief video.

Voting is easy—simply log onto your account at www.usacycling.org and click on the red VOTE NOW button. Remember, voting ends this Friday, August 15th.

Thank you,
Nick Reistad
Jelly Belly Pro Cycling Team
