Sports: Cycling (Road and Cyclocross) Favorite Event: Time trials, CX (the late, lamented Plymouth North course) Strengths: Finishing OTB (Off The Back) with panache Entry into endurance sports: 23 years running cross country, road races and marathons, heel spur surgery hastened entry into bike “racing”. (I have an annual race license; I pay the race entry fee and then am allowed to pretend I’m “racing”) Years competing in endurance sports: 33
Sports: Cycling Favorite Event: D2R2 (check it out here) Strengths: Is getting dropped by stronger riders considered a “strength”? Getting dropped with style! Entry into endurance sports: I began riding a Univega Nuovo Sport while living on a relatively remote horse farm in NJ. I had no other way to get around, and soon figured out that with a bike (and complete lack of parental supervision) I could cover miles and miles. Still just doing it to get away. Years competing in endurance sports: “Competing” is a strong word. Pulled my first USAC license in ’01.
