The Outspoken Cyclist – 08/03/2013

Here we stand at the intersection of July and August, and I can see the light in the opposite direction has gone from green to yellow, which means it’s time to get a foot clipped in and be ready to push off on green. It also means there are just two months left for U.S. cyclists to log miles for the National Bike Challenge. Rolling!

If you need a bit of inspiration to get you moving, here’s much more than a bit: George Thomas joins us this week for the first half of the show. George is a solo and team Race Across America finisher, director of the Race Across Oregon, and host and producer at Over the Top Productions. But his story is much deeper than those accomplishments. After being hit by a drunk driver, he had to learn how to walk again, and then overcome debilitating seizures before he could become an ultracycling legend.

After a break and a trip through the week’s news, Diane is joined by Sean Petty, Chief Operating Officer of USA Cycling, to talk about the USA Pro Challenge, which is coming up August 19-25 in Colorado. The 2013 Pro Challenge will feature top pro teams and riders, including, it appears, TdF winner Chris Froome and Richie Porte of Team Sky!
