About one year ago I was a rehab patient at Athletico South Loop: Michigan Avenue in Chicago following a surgical reconstruction of my ACL by Dr. Michael Terry.

One of my rehab goals was to lay a foundation for return to elite level performance in cycling for the 2017 season. To make a long story short, a few weeks ago I ended my cycling season by winning the Best All-Around Rider status at the UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships. It was an awesome experience.

I owe my successful season in part to the rehab plan and efforts I underwent at Athletico’s offices with my physical therapist, Michael Morrow. After all, literally one year ago post ACL surgery I could barely walk.

My son created an admittedly dramatic, but fun short video that memorializes my pursuit. I wanted to share my story along with the video with Athletico, as your organization is also a principal sponsor of our cycling team – xXx Racing-Athletico: https://youtu.be/6PPlImQQDag
