Janier Alexis Acevedo Calle was born in Medellin, Columbia and started racing at age 19 with no previous knowledge of bike racing nor any family or descendants in the field of competitive cycling.  Despite the fact Janier had no direct influences to get into cycling, he fell in love with it anyways.  At first, his bike was just a way to get to school...then, it became much, much more!  Now Janier stands on podiums with the most elite cyclists in the world.  This past 2013 season he won stages at the Tour of the Gila, Tour of California, Tour of Utah, and the USA Pro Challenge.  He placed 3rd overall in both the Tour of California and Tour of Utah over some of the biggest Pro Tour riders in the world.
