Jason Sager is an American cyclist best known for his mountain biking, in which he has scored over 60 career victories. In 1992, aged 17 he became entirely vegan, which served him well as he developed his cycling, turning professional in 2000. Prior to the cycling, Jason was a successful skateboarder, and has also competed successfully in duathlon.
His veganism has helped ensure his diet is balanced and of a good standard: "I find being a vegan athlete is an asset in that so much detail is put into your diet that its only natural for meals to be of the highest quality - something imperative as an athlete." The only addition he makes is taking an iron supplement when training at high altitude for longer periods.
He has been ranked in the US top 10, and has been national duathlon champion, although Jason has relished his opportunity to compete against the best in the world. He has secured some impressive results against all of them. "I've slayed them at least once, sometimes only once, but that's all it takes."
