Wes and Bernie Sulzberger have been cyclists for almost their whole lives, but with the exception of a few short-lived composite teams they’ve have never ridden on the same team together in their amateur or professional lives.
After taking very different career paths they’ve both ended up at the same place. Bernie, three years older, took the US, UK and Australian domestic route and Wes has seen international success at the World Championships, FDJ, and Orica-GreenEDGE. Now racing for Drapac Professional Cycling, they’re finally racing together and happy to be doing so. I had a chat with them after the Drapac team launch to see what makes these guys tick and how they get on as brothers and bike racers.
