Davis Phinney on Parkinson's Awareness Month and Taylor's Roubaix race

George Thomas caught up with Davis Phinney during his Parkinson's Awareness Month kickoff at Tossa Pizza. Davis talks about the inspiration behind starting his foundation (www.davisphinneyfoundation.org) and his excitement about Taylor riding his first pro level Paris-Roubaix. "...the kid loves the cobbles, that was not my specialty at all..." "...Taylor says when he races the cobbles he comes out of every cobble section better than when he came in..."

Davis is a class act. I met

Davis is a class act. I met him at the Tour of Americas in Florida back in 1988 when I started racing. He was extremely accommodating. Last year at the North Boulder Park Crit I saw Davis walking down the street as I was warming up to race. I stopped and chatted with him.....again, classy as ever. Great guy. I hope the best for him and his fight against Parkinson's.
