There’s been a lot of negativity with performance enhancing drugs, this takes the negativity out of the sport and focuses on people being proud of riding clean
Mesa, AZ (Vocus) June 9, 2010
Dan McGehee is in the news again. McGehee’s attempt at the 100-mile world track record is garnering attention for more than his athletic prowess. This is a story of a man who refuses to fail. This Saturday, June 12th,marks McGehee’s third try for the record. His last attempt brought him in only 9 seconds short of the record, currently held by Australian Rod Evans at 3:47:26. “After my last attempt, it was a long time before I even thought about trying it again,” says McGehee.
The wear and tear on the body has effects that are felt up to two weeks after the race. This time around, he’s determined to break the record. “The largest muscle in Dan McGehee’s body is between his ears. He has a mental toughness - he can accomplish anything he wants because he refuses to fail,” says RideClean Cycling Team manager Marty Ryerson.
Doctor Finders became involved with McGehee after they found out he was a full time optometrist with strong family values. His giving doesn’t end at home. McGehee’s volunteer efforts as an optometrist include donating time to do eye care exams for underprivileged – both locally and regionally in the Men’s Center in Mesa and also in Mexico.
He’s also a member of RideClean an organization that focuses on the purity of cycling. “There’s been a lot of negativity with performance enhancing drugs, this takes the negativity out of the sport and focuses on people being proud of riding clean,” says McGehee. “We’ve never had a member test positive for performance enhancing drugs.”
Despite his busy schedule, McGehee makes time to visit schools and talk about cycling. “It really gets kid’s attention when they see a time trial bike and how it works. It has an impact on kids,” says McGehee. “We chose to support Dan because he embodies the purity of the sport and represents what human beings can do with will power instead of drugs,” says Clint Ethington of Doctor Finders.
