Mr. Magner has won about a zillion races this year
Asheville, NC – Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends, Foes and Fans of all ages, lend me your ear: The Bookwalter Binge headquarters has confirmed that Ty Magner, not only the fastest man in the U.S., but also the Emperor of Athens, will ride in this year’s Bookwalter Binge. “Tytus,” as he is known on the streets and back alleys of Athens, is winding down a brilliant season riding for UnitedHealthcare’s blue-streaked Pain Train. Magner has racked up wins up and down the East Coast and the West Coast, all over the Midwest, the Southeast, the Southwest, the Northeast–you get the picture. Magner currently sits in first overall in the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour and looks destined to bring home top honors. Tytus is in demand and he’s agreed to waive his standard one-hundred thousand dollar appearance fee to join us at the Bookwalter Gran Fondo.
Tytus, was anointed “Emperor of Athens” after scalding the roads around Athens in the infamous Winter Bike League. Tytus followed his teacher around, John “the Kid” Murphy, on the WBL rides and learned how to grind others to powder and then outsprint them with a dominant horse-kick to the line. He learned the cruel tactic from the master because, after all, Murphy is the doyenne when it comes to making others suffer. Other riders in the WBL- (“Zealots” as they are known) – witnessed Magner’s scintillating turn of speed most recently when he took victories in 2016 and 2015. In 2015, Magner won the WBL’s prestigious Alto World Cup when after 105 miles he unleashed a can of whoopass and rode to victory in epic fashion by dropping his companions one-by-one in the final attack zone. It was on that day that Tytus truly owned the city.
The Griffin, Georgia native began his cycling career after following in the steps of his older brothers, Casey and Brett, who were wiser, meaner, and at the time, faster. But times have changed. Tytus has gone from winning sprints on Athens group rides to winning the biggest criteriums in the States. He’s won not one but TWO U-23 criterium national championships, has won about a zillion races this year, and is poised to take top honors as the top Pro rider in the U.S. Do yourself a favor and plan on attending the Bookwalter Binge this October 27th and ride with Tytus Magner, the Emperor of Athens! Rumor has it he’ll be wearing his crown.
