Scott Hargrove could feel the lactic acid building in his muscles. Despite the pain, he continued to pedal his bike and maintain a high cadence in order to stay on the wheel and in the draft of his older brother Robert — a UCI licensed cyclist who regularly achieves an epic suffer score on Strava.com.

With his legs and lungs working at maximum capacity and heart rate spiked, Hargrove continues to push and chase. He knows the effort will pay off. Fitness is key for a race car driver and Scott’s has never been better; thanks in part to his brother Robert, who after suffering a severe knee injury during a 2011 ski cross race with the British Columbia team (BCSC), turned to bikes as a way to rehab.

“He likes to push my limits,” Scott said, when asked about training with his brother Robert. “The only real chance I have to keep up with him is after he has already done double this distance of me earlier in the day. He’s an Iron Man in my eyes and has turned into a true athlete. That, for sure, drives me to follow in his foot steps.

“The motivation carries through into whatever I am doing,” Scott continued, “whether it be schoolwork, training, or racing.”

The morning after pursuing his brother 60 kilometers (nearly 40-miles) at a strenuous pace, Hargrove turns his focus to school work and stuffs his backpack full of books, his laptop, gym clothes, and lunch. After strapping the nearly 50-pound bundle to his back, he climbs onto his late-90s dark-blue Specialized carbon road bike, equipped with fenders and rides to class, 15 km one way.
