Last summer SoCalCycling.com interviewed Matthew Carinio right after his win in the 40-44 Masters National Road Championships and he had some great insights on training, racing and the Master’s race scene. In 2013, Carinio will be riding along side a strong roster on the ArtsCyclery.com Masters Cycling Team, which is one of the top Masters cycling teams on the West Coast.
