What was, is not always what is.
This is true in cycling as it is in medicine.
Seeing such change takes some observational skill.
Looking back on life (‘retrospectively’ is how we term it in the medical world), it is easy to identify such chapter breaks. Far more challenging, though, is to note the moment of change as it happens in real time.
When our eyes met we both grinned in unison. The feeling of his hand touching mine lingers with me, longer than I would have guessed. Parents ache for such joy from their children. And at such triumphant moments we yearn for the ‘pause’ button.
A new chapter in a bike racers life surely begins when this…
feels far better than this.
