Am I the only one who read about the 27 year old ex-pro MTB who won the College x-country nationals from Ft. Lewis by 6 minutes over his teammate as reported in Velonews and thought:
Apparently he already competed for 4 years in x-country skiing for U of Alaska, now is doing a year or two more of beating up 18-22 year olds.
He is excited to ride the college road series this year as a 27/28 year old 5/6/7th year junior/senior.
He must be so proud.
The pic they had in Velonews had the usual winning hands up glee, and I thought "how pathetic"
Am I way off base, I didn't pick up a bike until well after college, how do our collegiate riders feel about this yahoo?
Edit: Just re-read the title of the thread, maybe I should have spent more time in college : )
