BOULDER, CO (BRAIN) — Competitor Group Inc. has promoted Caley Fretz to tech editor for Velo magazine and VeloNews.com.
Fretz has worked at Velo since September 2010, most recently as associate technical editor. He began as an intern in spring 2009 while still attending Colorado State University, where he was president of the collegiate cycling team.
"Caley's passion for the technical aspect of bike racing is unmatched," said Neal Rogers, Velo's editor in chief. "He brings a depth of knowledge that our readers already recognize and appreciate, as well as a writing style that is inspired and original. His good-natured personality and keen attention to detail will serve him well in this new leadership role."
Fretz now splits his time between Boulder, Colorado, and Annecy, France. Beyond his journalistic pursuits, he is a Category 1 road and cyclocross racer. He also holds a professional cross-country mountain bike license.
