This is a story for those who have battled cancer. For those who have watched a loved one fight through the pain. For parents who have walked the unbearable line of watching their child lose their vibrancy years too soon. For those who have experienced the joy, the challenge, the safe haven, community, and growth that mountain biking has brought them. This is a story about a simple idea to use the thread of a yellow jersey to bring together the world’s best mountain bikers into one place for something bigger than each of them.
