Bite the dust, then reach for the stars

Here is an excerpt from an article that Michael Barry has written for VeloNews. We found it interesting because it talks about the trials and tribulations during his races.

“Dozens of riders will cross the finish line covered in blood. After scrubbing the wounds with brushes and antiseptics the team doctors will patch us up. Some riders will go to hospital for X-rays. Others, knowing they may have broken bones, will continue regardless. Knowing a bone is broken will not change their decision to start again. Few want to quit the Tour de France, or any major event, unless forced. The race is too grand and our desire too intense.”
