Sidestepping threats and jeers, the Afghan women on the country’s national cycling team are risking their lives to compete and doing their part to help women’s rights race forward in the war-torn nation. NBC’s Mike Taibbi reports.
This video is both tragic and inspirational. The adversity these women must overcome would seem insurmountable to most people. I applaud these cyclists for their courage and tenacity. Please take 2 minutes and watch this clip. It’s absolutely worth watching.
I am honored to be a part this amazing amateur women’s cycling team in NYC. We have support from some incredible sponsors, including Stan’s NoTubes, Hutchinson Tires, enduranceWERX, Amrita Health Foods, iFIXBYX, Fearless Chocolates and OSMO Nutrition. Look out for us on the road!
