We owe everything, everything, to this man. He was my first real coach. He set me up in Switzerland the first time I went to Europe. Tom Stevens, Mark and Frank McCormack, me - we ALL learned 'cross from Paul Curley. And more than that, we learned how to race bikes like other people played chess; shrewd, calculating, cutthroat, the very definition of a New England style of bike racing flowed from Paul. If you race 'cross in New England, or in the United States, you can trace your roots back to Paul, his passion, his experience and his willingness to teach and share that with us.
We owe him everything.
Congrats, Paul. And thank you. For everything.
