In 2004, while riding for TIAA–CREF – then a small team on the US circuit that would later grow to be one of the world's biggest, currently known as Cannondale–Drapac – Lewis was gravely injured when he was struck by a car during an individual time trial at the Tour de Georgia. He lost consciousness, punctured both lungs, suffered severe internal bleeding, and fractured dozens of bones. After months of rehab and physical therapy, and multiple surgeries, Lewis eventually made a full recovery.
After failing to earn a contract for the 2014 season, Lewis retired in February 2014.
