Personal:

Timmy Duggan was born in Boulder, Colo. As just about anybody born in that part of the country, his interests included skiing, hiking and camping. Duggan and his friend Ian MacGregor skied competitively for the Eldora Mountain Club and the Summit Race Team. In those surroundings, Duggan's competitive spirit was born. Their ski coaches, Susan and Brian White, encouraged Duggan and MacGregor into cycling as a means to maintain conditioning during the offseason.

Duggan played a key support role for the U.S. team at the 2011 Road World Championships.

Duggan excelled on the road and upon graduating high school, left the slopes in his rearview mirror. His ability on the bike quickly rose to the surface as he became a regular on the podium at U23 road events. In 2004, Duggan was the runner-up in the time trial and finished third in the road race at the U23 national championships. As a 24-year-old, Duggan placed third in the time trial at the 2007 USA Cycling Professional Road & Time Trial National Championships in Greenville, finishing only eight seconds behind winner Dave Zabriskie.

With a podium appearance in the professional time trial among his palmares, Duggan sought to further establish himself among the elite of the sport in the 2008 season.

Disaster struck as Duggan was contesting the third stage of the 2008 Tour de Georgia. He crashed dramatically, breaking his clavicle and scapula and suffered mild brain hemorrhaging, ending his season. He was back to bike racing in 2009. In 2012, Duggan proved that he was all the way back from his crash by riding solo for approximately 20 kilometers to win the road race at the 2012 Greenville Hospital Systems USA Cycling Professional Road Race and Time Trial National Championships in Greenville, S.C.

Duggan and MacGregor have created the Just Go Harder Foundation to help raise money for kids who can't otherwise afford the opportunity to be a part of the skiing and cycling clubs that played such an integral part in their upbringing.

Duggan is married to Loren. The two of them enjoy spending time with their dog, Karli, hiking, camping and spending quality time with friends.
