You guys think he can do it?
So how 'bout Chris Horner?
Chris Horner, turning 42 shortly, is the oldest-ever Grand Tour winner.
His chief rival at the Vuelta a Espana, Italian Vincenzo Nibail (team Astana) at age 28 and winner of the 2013 Giro, has spoken of Horner (like Horner’s teammate Jens Voigt, 41) as changing the game for pro cyclists (or any athlete) considering extending a highly competitive career.
Having had a chance to meet and have short discussions with both Chris and Jens – I have great belief they’re clean. With that, they are demonstrating for me that age and associated physiological changes can be offset with wisdom, vision and determination.
I feel younger today ;)
BTW, Chris Horner won the first cycling race I ever watched live, so I have a soft spot for the guy.
