The guy's name is Jerry, he lives in Santa Clarita. He is the one responsible for getting me into riding. He had polio at the age of 2, has ridden bikes since he was little, while he was a teenager, he started working in his dad's bicycle shop. He is a purist, he rides tubulars, Campy equiped bikes, he has several including a fixie.
When riding with a guy that is doing all his cycling with one leg, you have no excuse for not finishing, when you have two good legs.
I feel that way a lot when running. I'm dying, trying to convince myself not to stop and lie down when someone with no legs flies past me on prosthetics. Here I am whining to myself that I'm tired and I have two legs!
What do you call a bike racer that only shaves one leg? Scott!! He is a local racer who has trained with the olympic team. See him at the Rose bowl and on La Tuna canyon every once in a while when he is in town. Very strong rider.
