You think you have it tough

So there I am, attending a small midwestern University and I never thought it would happen to me...sorry wrong story. I was riding up Edworthy last week and bemoaning the fact that I'm out of shape and have alder tree fluff stuck in my nose, when up ahead I see a one legged cyclist. Not a word of a lie. Not on some weird retro-fitted one-legged bike contraption, but on a regular bike. He had his right leg clipped in and the other went only part way to the top tube where he had it fixed to the bike. AND HE WAS ROCKING IT. I was very impressed. I asked him if I could have his right quad.

FYI - he raced the banff Crit this past weekend in Cat 5 I think. Impressive!

He beat me in my very first tt ever, a sign of things to come really.

Spun with him for about 10km at Pigeon this year. Amazing kid, and would even stand on the hills if his cadence dropped off. Humbling to say the least.

I was in the Cat 5 crit with him. He was nearer the back than the front (don't ask how I know that) but he was holding his own.
