Cycle Sports

At age 12, John started working as a bicycle messenger, delivering goods around the city. He soon got a reputation for being the fastest of the boys, and he could spend hours tuning and tweeking on his messenger bike to improve performance. Inspired by the radio casts from the Tour de France and his hero Fausto Coppi, he raced through town pretending Gino Bartoli was on his tail. Their battles in the French mountains was nailbiting, but Coppi always seemed to come out on top.

Still, every morning John likes to go for a ride on his bike before work.
