Over the past two weeks, my Team Exergy teammates and I have ridden many miles along the ocean, climbed large mountains and have learned the language basics of Spanish, Russian, Italian and English..why? Well because 6 of the 16 riders are foreign riders! Do you know where Columbia is? How about Moldova? Switzerland? I hope you know where Canada is!
We have to learn the basics of one other's language to communicate during the races. We even have a set of twins...but they are telepathic so they don't need to talk! Just kidding.
This past weekend we raced as a team and after four days of riding, came away with a victory! We raced for a total of 10 hours over four days, over 240 miles. Everyone's hard work paid off but it took an entire team of 8 riders and 5 staff members to deliver 1 rider to the podium.
That's cycling; all for one, one for all!
