    Life in general feels a bit like your observations Adam. It’s like a multi-faceted moment, and we see glimpses of it in the shifting light.

    • That’s true! Usually memory is a bit like that too.

    Excellent writing! A very enjoyable read.

    I got into cycling after spending my life training and playing another sport (lacrosse) here in the U.S. I played at the top college level and by the end, had my fill. Time for a new sport. Cycling has filled the void, been an avid pedaleur since 2003. I now ride daily and follow the pro tour. In the past I wondered what might have been if I’d started cycling at age 7, not lacrosse. Who knows?

    However, reading this, and the other books and stories, the life of a professional cyclist is a tough one. For me, I’ll keep my day job and ride bikes I love for fun. As for Mr. Phelan, enjoy the ride while it lasts, I’m sure it’ll be over before you know it, which is how life seems to go.

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Thanks! It can be tough at times, but on whole it’s an amazing experience! I love that I get the chance to do what I do :)

    Well try travelling for professional work… Many travellers are not on holiday. At least you get a chance to exercise! :)

    • Yeah, that’s what I hope I got across in the article: that it may not be a holiday for us, but there is still so much you can gain from being away racing! It’s mostly awesome. Cheers :)

    Great Read Adam, I think I would still give up the mundane day to day work I do to have a shot at this!
    Enjoying the videos :)

    • Cheers. Yes, I am definitely going to keep this racing stuff up for as long as I can :) Thanks for the feedback!

    Amazing writing! I enjoyed reading very much.

    I worked last year as a team guide of Drapac in tour de korea 2014 so in Seoul (final stage of 2015) I visited Drapac team booth to see Peter and Keith. Shame that I could not say hi to you and other riders.

    I hope to see other videos and writings of yours. Good luck!

    • Cheers! Awesome, sorry we missed seeing you! Yeah, plan to have a few more :)
