Taylor Phinney

Today was a good day. All three presenters were totally engaging. We studied overuse injuries, goal setting, and Taylor Phinney's amazing rise to a world class athlete and American Cycling's great hope. That kid is fucking amazing. He will quite possibly be the greatest American cyclist ever. No offense to those other two ego freaks, well maybe a little offense, but that kid appears to have it all. And he seems charming and humble to boot. I guess winning big races is de rigueur when you grow up in a family like that. And his 14 year old sister is apparently a badass cross country skier that may just find her way to the bike as well. The number one rule of sport is pick your parents well.
