A nice piece from The New York Times on David Wiens, the man who took on and beat both Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong in the Leadville 100:
Wiens says he is glad for the attention and hopes he inspires people, but he knows next year’s Leadville race will be even more challenging.
After a bike industry convention last month in Las Vegas, he ran into a top pro mountain biker who told him, “I was talking to my manager and saying, ‘Someone’s got to beat Wiens.’ ”
“So, I know they’re coming,” Wiens said. “These are the guys I retired from, because I was tired of getting whupped up by them. I’m going to be a year older, but I’m not going to shy away from them. I’m going to give it a go.”
