Monster Energy congratulates Monster Army’s Justin Dowell on winning the 2018 UCI Urban World Cycling Championships in Chengdu, China. Heading into the finals, the 18-year-old was a man with a mission, saying he “wanted to win more than anything” and that he had “tricks up his sleeves” that would do the job.
The Virginia Beach native has been traveling Europe and training for this competition for the entire year. After finishing 8th last year in the World Championships he earned himself a spot in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, but was unable to attend the competition. Using that let down as motivation he has his eyes set on the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan and wanted to start that journey with a World Championship title.
