    A true legend and sporting hero. The Alf Tupper of cycling, sticking it to the blazers and the doubters and doing it his way without the support of big sponsors.

    Respect.

    O`Bree is such a hero of mine. Despite the all the odds, difficulties, UCI ganging up on him, successful athletes and personalities pulling the carpet away from under his feet, financial difficulties. All the pain and suffering. All the hurt from a hard childhood. The loss of a dear brother. And yet he answered it all, and he let his legs do the talking. And in so doing, he beat the World.
