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.

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.
