“Everyday is a test in how much you can handle. Not one moment stands out. My hardest day will be when I have to hang up my wheels, but I'm pretty tough, so I doubt that will happen."
Brad Huff’s career on a bicycle started as a child at Spokes BMX track in Springfield, Missouri. After his first ride down the large start ramp and rolling through the first turn he was hooked for life. After getting “humbled” in high school track and field meets, Huff bought a mountain bike and started commuting to school to build his endurance. Although his running times got a little better, it was the on the bike that Huff excelled. The 2017 season is Huff’s 11th year as professional and he remains one of the fastest sprinters in the domestic peloton. https://rallycycling.com/
