    Hi everyone,

    The DC Tri Club March book discussion is on a cycling book, “Heroes, Villains & Velodromes: Chris Hoy and Britain’s Tracy Cycling Revolution” in case anyone would like to join.

    While many Americans are familiar with road cycling races, far fewer know much about track cycling. The same was true in the United Kingdom until summer 2008. That’s when British track cyclist Chris Hoy (now age 47 and retired from professional cycling) won 3 gold medals in the 2008 Olympics to become the then most successful Olympic cyclist of all time.

    In Heroes, Villains & Velodromes, author Richard Moore—who is a retired elite cyclist and a British investigative journalist—delivers a fly-on-the-wall story of Chris Hoy’s breakout training season that contributed to his monumental athletic achievement in Beijing in the 2008 Olympics. Although Chris is the story’s focus, the author expands the story to include other key members of the successful British cycling team. The author also includes important support staff (e.g., coaches, psychiatrists, doctors) and other significant behind-the-scenes people.

    We’ll be meeting on Zoom on Tue, March 26.
