In case you haven’t heard local guy (Marietta/Athens) John Murphy has had a really good season with OUCH which culminated in the US National Crit Championship.
This season he signed with BMC and is now team mates with George Hincapie.
I raced with John Murphy for several seasons, and he is a unique indiviual with a keen sense of humor!
I got a chance to chat with him at the Winter Bike League ride on January 2nd, and something that stuck out that he said was… ‘you gotta take the good with the bad’. It was apparent that he realized this related to life more than just cycling. He is a grounded young talent, I look forward to his continued success in the peloton.
