“The difference between recreational riding and racing is a quantum leap in terms of both ability and fitness,” explained Schusterman. “After I got to the top of the recreational pack, my coach said, ‘Why not race?’ So I did.”
Schusterman became interested in cycling in high school in Louisville, Ky., but his bike was stolen the first week in college at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga. Because he could not afford another, he started running and didn’t stop for 20 years.
“I liked running to stay fit, although I was always getting injured, especially my ankles. When I hit my 40s, I simply could not run anymore, so I went back to cycling and I’ve been on my bike ever since.”
