Wounded Warriors: Special Stories
Every athlete at the first ever W100K had a great story and was more than happy to share. It was a very special few days.
“It was a once in a lifetime experience,” admits Hernandez.
And he’s right. Every one of the troops that made up Peloton One is dealing every single day with the mental and physical trauma that comes along with being seriously injured. Some of those wounds are visible, but some are not. The W100K was all about providing a venue for mentoring, sharing, riding, biffing and, ultimately, recovering and moving on.
