Insight’s very own Keith Harper — web designer by day, kick-ass cyclist the rest of the time — won the silver medal last night during the USA Cycling masters track national championships at the 7-Eleven Velodrome in Colorado Springs.
And Keith is so modest. He put in a full day at the office before making the two-hour drive to Colorado Springs for the big event, which was at 8 pm Wednesday night. Then, when he came in the office this morning, he didn’t mention the race or the medal until I casually asked him what he did last night.
Keith: “I had a race.”
Beth: “How’d you do?”
Keith: “I finished second.”
Beth: “What was the race?”
Keith: “The national track championships.”
Beth: “You mean you came in second in the whole nation. That’s amazing.”
Keith: Shrugged his shoulders.
So I thought I’d do a little bragging for Keith!
In Wednesday’s points race, Keith’s teammate, Clarke Sheehan – also of the Orange Guy Truss and Fence track team – finished first. On Sunday, the two of them will compete together in the “Madison” team event back at the Velodrome. Don’t know what a Madison is? Find out here. Wish Keith and Clarke luck as they go for gold together.
