The family circle of Taylor Phinney’s cycling career

June 21, 2012

Some would say his cycling career began during an intimate moment between two Olympians.

Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing Team) says his career pretty much started with a conversation at the 2005 Tour de France when he was 15 years-old.

Fresh from a training ride on June 20, 2012, in the video below Phinney describes his ride and how he started racing bikes. Then he uses a time-honored shape to illustrate the influence of his parents and sister Kelsey on him and vice-versa.

The only thing missing is the collection of funny faces Phinney made before the video started.

Something like this to the left but much more dramatic.
