A small race? Maybe?
A very small race?
Not at all! I have one in my head for years, and if I can get the right words, it can get us into the first of the 12-round boxing shows.
A long-distance race where your rider needs to ride all the way to a finish line to break the all-time World record?
That seems like a great idea!
An event where the rider needs to run out all the way back to the starting line to win?
That is a great idea! We did our first track world-record event in 1985 and then held them at the end of the season; we thought it would be great to have all the riders get in some crosswind-driven racing, as that is part of the sport. We had some guys ride to the finish line on a bike, for example, in the same way any of us running a track race is going to ride all the way back to the start line. That’s part of the sport, and they won. And a couple of riders had an unbelievable effort that went right to the finish line.
What’s the history of what you’re doing and trying to do?
I used to teach high school chemistry and I’ve been a track coach since 1978, and I have used a number of different forms of sports (track, rowing) to teach. I am trying out the sports of my mind on this because everything else seems to be going so well. I was able to get into all of those sports in a very competitive way so that’s been interesting.
Do you ever think you might have to take a break from your life as a teacher or student or just move on and go do something else?
Not this year. I have one more term to finish before I head off for Mexico in a few weeks. The thing I am most looking forward to, however, is the new race series that is being developed right now. I have been working with my colleagues at the school board on something to get them excited about, but unfortunately I will be gone for the coming year because I am going to be racing this racing season.
Did the World Boxing Championships change your approach to racing a horse?
They helped me understand a lot more what I am doing, the concept of pacing races, and how to organize the racing. I had no clue about what I was doing to be honest with you.
