Matt Lee got started early on two wheels, racing motocross in his native Georgia as a teenager. After college, he bought his first mountain bike in order to improve endurance for races. The focus quickly shifted to mountain bike racing in 2010, and road racing soon followed. While in graduate school at Georgia Tech, Matt raced mountain, road, and cyclocross on the Georgia Tech Cycling Team. He still feels most at home in the dirt, especially going as fast as possible down a mountain. Matt just relocated to the D.C. area in Jan. 2013, and will be racing his first season with Gripped Racing.
