This is probably one of the most powerful and inspirational stories of unconditional love and a father's unwaivering devotion to his son despite the overwhelming odds against them. This video left me speachless and searching for tissues.
It is great that he put the son at the front of the bike so he would cross the finish line first. What an amazing person. He has all my respect.
and at 65 years old and over 911 competitive events, he's earned it. Not to mention the overwhelming fact that it's all about his son. We ought all seek to live to his standard of unwaivering devotion.

I am a pure blooded cynic. The first thing I thought was "What a show-off!". Half way through the second video I almost got choked up, too. That father is a champion for his son. That guy is my new hero.
I have never felt that way about a story of inspiration. Thanks for posting those vids Witmaster.

when i was holding my daughter the first time it dawned on me that love isn't what someone is going to do for you or make you feel... it's simply what you are willing to do for someone else. that is love in it's purest form. i really think what that man does he does for his child and not himself at all.
you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for
