WHY are mountain-bike race pictures so much cooler than any running race pictures I’ve ever gotten??
This is from the race in which Aaron fractured his clavicle. Look how purdy those mountains are!
(The tattoos say “Deeds not words” in Latin [from his family crest] and “Without rules” [the other arm says “until the end”] in Italian. There are lots more tattoos, too. My favorite? On his leg, next to a surgery scar from his broken femur: “It never gets easier, you just go faster.”)
