I’m mid-way through my ride along PCH this morning when who should overtake me but David Zabriskie. Wow! How cool is that? I was still basking in the glory of riding the same piece of tarmac as the current US time-trial champion when, on a slight hill, another rider flashed past me.
Now, it’s one thing to be overtaken by a rider half your age who’s worn the coveted Yellow Jersey at the Tour de France and won stages in all three grand tours, but it’s another to be overtaken by a guy who’s obviously a few years older than me…and only has one leg!
Pride comes before a….OUCH!
