Career Highlights: Horner will make his first Olympic appearance as the oldest member of the U.S. Cycling team. He’s won 18 stage races during his long and successful career and finished 10th in the 2010 Tour de France _ bettering his previous-best finish of 15th in 2007. A three-time USA Cycling national racing calendar champion from 2002-2004, Horner brings plenty of big-race experience to this year’s national squad despite having never taken part in Olympic competition. After finishing as the overall winner at the Amgen Tour of California in 2011, Horner placed eighth in the same event this year and was second at the 2012 Tirreno-Adriatico. His best finish on the international world championship scene came in 2004 when he was eighth in the road race. Though Horner may be up in age, he is one of the more popular members of Team USA because of his animated nature and knack for being a free spirit.
