RYOKOU - CHAPTER 1: BEGINNING
This video series about Shane Perkins racing Keirin in Japan has been trickling out all week and I finally took the time to sit down and watch all of them. Definitely take a look!
« In this first chapter, we meet Shane Perkins and learn about how and why he started track cycling. We hear from his parents, Daryl and Maureen Perkins about Shane as a young restless kid wanting to try everything and how with an Olympic track cyclist for a Dad, the curiosity grew and grew until a day on the track unveiled “a kid with a bit of go”.
One of the most remarkable quotes is that on his first interstate trip, Shane came back with two Australian records and three Gold Medals and he’d only been riding for 3 months.
