Brian Albright doing what he loves


Ever since I moved from Missouri, I have had only one thing that keeps me going from day to day. I started cycling at the age of twelve and instantly fell in love with the sport.

It gives me a way to escape from my day to day life and explore the world. I was introduced to cycling when a man named Ian Dille moved across the street from me. I asked him if I could go on a ride with him around the block and now today I go miles on my bike without stopping.

I love that the sport is competitive if you want it to be, or you can just go out and enjoy a ride. When I am competing in a race, I am given a way to let out my energy in a way that I would not be able to go without cycling.

I am thankful that I have a supportive family when I race and a friend to ride with.

The first time I competed in a race, I quickly fell behind and started getting lapped. However I train a lot, and I’ve learned that my practice improves my skill.

I ride every week in order to ensure that I better myself in the cycling community.

I hope that one day my hard work pays off and I see my name on the winning ballot.

I also hope to one day advance my cycling skills enough to race in bigger competitions rather than just compete in local events.

One day, I hope to even race the Tour de France.

When I am training for a race, I always think about how I can improve myself in the future and be able to do better in my next race. While I am racing, I think about how I can stay in the race no matter what, even when the pain is hurting and I do not want to continue.

One of the best rides I have ever gone on is when I rode over 50 miles on a group ride. It was a hard ride and I felt worn out toward the middle of the ride but toward the end, I had enough self-discipline to finish hard with the rest of the group. I have never ridden that hard and that fast until that day.

It is one of the best feelings when I cross a finish line. When I cross the line, I feel like I accomplished something and that my hard work paid off. I train to someday get the feeling of pride as I finish a race and see my name on the scoreboard.
