Clara Hughes: An Insipring Ride
This past weekend's, world championship of cycling, elite women's road race proved to the world that women's cycling can be just as exciting as the men's. I was on the edge my seat watching a "gutsy" and daring late stage solo breakaway by Clara Hughes. I really thought and hoped, she was going to pull it off. I was heart broken when she was caught right before the finish, so I can't imagine how gutted she must have felt. Regardless, I'm proud of Clara and her late break move, as it certainly put Canadian Cycling on the map. With her gritted teeth, and determined style in her solo break, reminded me of the days of Hinault or Bauer. I loved it. Clara, Thank you for an inspiring ride.
