Yay! I have a question for him. Being a white middle-aged dude, I want to know how to help without being a jerk. One idea: I would start last in the BWR, and would raise money for the legal defense fund and L39ion for every person I pass. Someone has done this sort of thing for Leadville.
The question is, is it presumptuous for me to do this? Should I just lean in to support others in their fundraising efforts? Or is it good to create more opportunities to provide support?
Again, looking for ways to help without being an insensitive poop.
I met Justin in Mallorca last November with Rapha. Real nice guy, relaxed, loves talking about bikes and his team and as you’d expect an exception bike handler. He wasn’t so much of a fan of the Mallorca hills - he’s no slouch when climbing though! Looking forward to this one.
Yea GCN covered that pretty well in their nearly 25 minute highlight of LE9ION. I’m sure there will be talks about diversity in the sport, as there should be, but also hoping to hear more about their training and strategy and past experiences as POC in what’s fair to call a “white guy sport” more so than opinions on current events that don’t necessarily relate to cycling.
