Svein Tuft getting ready for a time trial



National Cycling Centre athlete Svein Tuft was the subject of a feature article recently in the New York Times. The article appeared in the February 7, 2009 edition and profiles Tuft's rise in the cycling world from a school drop-out to riding with one of the world's top pro cycling teams.

Those who have heard the tale of Svein Tuft have wondered, could it possibly be true? How he dropped out of school in the 10th grade, lured by the freedom of the outdoors. How he evolved into a barrel-chested woodsman with Paul Bunyan biceps. How he ventured, at 18, from his home in Canada into the wilderness on a $40 thrift-shop bike hooked to a homemade trailer.
