If you read only one story this week, you should read about Taylor Phinney‘s remarkable last-place finish in a stage of the recent Tirreno-Adriatico stage race.

We know what you’re thinking: “What’s so remarkable about a last-place finish?”

On most days, nothing. On this day, everything. Because on this day Taylor wasn’t just racing for himself or his team. As he soldiered on through the rain and cold on his own — after the group he was in abandoned — Taylor found himself riding for his father, cycling legend Davis Phinney, who has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for much of his life.

It’s the sort of stuff that makes a chilling ride a heartwarming read you will not forget. Read it now.
