Before I get into this I just wanted to point out that I am not a journalist. Everything I’m writing here is just my observations from hanging out at the track this summer. I didn’t have conversations with anyone “on the record” hence why I don’t name or quote any riders. I was just having casual conversations with folks about life, racing, and the Olympics. I wasn’t conducting interviews. So take this for what it is, just my glimpse behind the curtain of world-class athletes racing, doing their thing, and trying to make the Olympic dream happen.
Is on display at the LACMA this month in the Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 exhibition. Make sure you check it out. I wonder what the new Los Angeles branding will look like in 2028?
While a nation battles a 20-year continuous war, alongside an active volcano, a group of young cyclists are aiming for Olympic glory. See more at the Olympic Channel.
