Another Comeback for Craig Lewis

6

I saw this article and it makes me wonder about and respect Craig Lewis. He might be best known for his accident in the Tour of Georgia when a car pulled out in front of him on a time trial stage. According to Craig's blog, he broke 47 bones and punctured both lungs. Now he is coming back from a broken femur at the Giro that required a second surgery because the leg was not fully healing. He is going to ride with Champion Systems next year which is a new Pro Continental Team. It just seems to me that he has been through a great deal to be 26 and that he must really love racing his bike. I hope he keeps the rubber side down and has a great year. I'd love to see an interview with him where he explains his motivation for racing and what it is like to come back from such severe injuries.
