Łukasz Owsian

Rider

  • Birthdate: 24.02.1990
  • Height: 181 cm
  • Weight: 66 kg
  • Nationality: Poland

He was born in Toruń and he still lives there. He grew up in a cycling family, as his dad was his first coach (alongside Wiesław Młodziankiewicz) and his brother, Arkadiusz, was also a professional cyclist.

Early on he was trying all kinds of cycling disciplines – MTB, road and track – and he quickly showcased his talent. He is the same age as world champion, Michał Kwiatkowski, who is also from Toruń, so he had the opportunity to race with him on a regular basis. One season, in the school league, Kwiato was 1st and Łukasz finished just behind him, in 2nd.

27-year old rider with a nickname “Łysy” (“bold”) has been always focused on cycling and never imagined to do something else for a living. Although at school he was quite good at IT and that could be his alternative path.

As a young father he spends his off-bike time playing with his child. Whenever he finds some free moment he enjoys playing video games and watching NBA basketball.

He considers his gold medals in Road Mountains Polish Championship as his biggest achievements in his career, alongside with world and European championships participation.

Owsian has been a CCC Sprandi Polkowice rider his entire professional career.
