John Howard has one incredible cycling resume: an Olympian in 1968, 1972 and 1976; winner of the Pan American Games road race in 1971; and a 10-year member of the U.S. National Team. He’s also done some crazy stuff such as setting the bicycle-speed record by riding 152.2 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1985 and set the world 24-hour cycling distance record of 593 miles 1987. These days, Howard – who at 6-foot-2, 163 pounds, is pretty darn close to his racing weight from the 1970s – lives in California and runs his coaching and bike-fitting business, John Howard Performance Sports.
Howard recently released Mastering Cycling and he sat down with PezCycling News to talk about his book. Click here to read the full article.
