Dreaming of the Tour De France, that is. I’d seen Paulo and young Gian Carlos riding at a good clip several times on the trail, sometimes Paulo in front, sometimes Gian leading. Interesting.
We chatted. They came down from Orlando to get in some good long rides along the Legacy trail. “Gian is 9 years old and loves to ride his bike and the science of training. Most days, we ride 30 to 60 miles together, and Gian has done a 90 mile ride. Gian can safely get in some long rides on the trail as there’s no cars. He wears a heart rate monitor to stay in his training zone.” Here’s to seeing him on the podium some day, Gian Carlos!
