Selection Committee

Austin Horse

Even among the rough-and-tumble breed of bike messengers, Austin Horse stands out. The New York City rider excels in courier-style street races, where it takes speed, endurance and brains to hit numerous checkpoints on the way to the finish line.

Austin has won the NACCC in both 2006 and 2008 and is a sponsored Red Bull Rider and fills out his busy schedule by jet setting and remaining politically active. He serves on the board of Times Up! an environmental non-profit on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that aims to promote a more sustainable, less toxic city. No matter what happens Austin knows that wherever he’s headed, he’ll be pedaling.
