We thought we knew Taylor Phinney.
It turns out we didn't know Taylor Phinney.
Taylor used to race bikes, he was one of the best the USA has ever produced, yet he abruptly pulled the pin on his professional career in 2019 as a 29yr old. He hasn't stopped riding bikes, in fact he's discovered a style of cycling that is about as far removed from racing as is possible, and in the process he's found himself.
Mikkel B. Rasmussen and David Millar interview Taylor separately: Mikkel from Copenhagen and David atop a hill, next to a chapel, near Girona while on a mountain bike ride.
