I clearly remember meeting Troy in Shoup Park. I found him to be extremely friendly and vary inspirational with his bike knowledge and humor. I told him that he has the physical build of a professional bike racer, but I could instantly tell that he would join in conversation and ride with most anyone, including me. Troy replied, I do not compete with anyone in WW Club, I compete with myself, using Strava. He then told me that he likes to start a ride at a slow to moderate pace and then later catch up to the faster D riders. A moment before the start of our ride, Troy's humor put me in the mood to sing a few lyrics, Bob Dylan Two riders were approaching and the wind began to howl. Troy responded with The Doors,  Riders On The Storm. This was my first and last meet with Troy, but I will never forget it.
