“I joined the Squad Cycles team in January of 2015 and hit it off with Patrice right away,” says Kilshaw. “Patrice understands me as an athlete and as a person and has taught me that the two go hand in hand in one’s development. Check out my report on Ironman 70.3 San Juan where I go into more detail on my relationship with Patrice and Squad here.”
