Having been an avid runner and gym rat most of her life, Jan discovered cycling about six years ago, and has never looked back.  Part of this love of cycling is joining La Grange, and meeting all the wonderful people who are part of the cycling community.  She believes volunteering for La Grange is a very worthwhile endeavor, and looks forward to working for the club in the future.  Her day job is working as an attorney for the Los Angeles County Public Defenders, but she can occasionally be seen day-dreaming in court about being on her bike, riding with friends.  Contact Jan

Joe has enjoyed road cycling most of his life. In 2007 he had a serious injury while on his road bike. Several years later he decided to get back into cycling, and is very glad he did. Having met so many fine people that make up Velo Club La Grange, he decided it was now time for him to give back to those what they had given to him. He is proud to be a Director of Velo Club La Grange. Contact Joseph

Marco Fantone and Velo Club La Grange came together in 1997 as the result of a skiing accident and group rides haven’t been the same since! A member of the La Grange board of directors since 2001, Marco served as club president from 2009-2012. Always one to sweat the details, Marco has consistently been involved in the design of club clothing, team framesets and the look and feel of La Grange’s signature event, the Brentwood Grand Prix bike race. When he’s not making contributions to his ad agency, you can find this Cat 2 racer competing in Masters 35+ and 45+ races or mixing it up on the weekly club rides. Contact Marco
