Taking on the Race Across America: Meet Team4HIVHope 2011

December 15, 2011

Patrick Burns, New York City, N.Y.

"I've been racing bikes on and off my whole life, it seems. I raced BMX bikes as a kid, got into road racing in high school and a little bit into college. Then I stopped riding and only started racing again, after 20 years, just two years ago. I got involved with this team when I found out through Cisco and Jim that they were doing this race. When I found out what they were riding for, I was impressed and asked if I could film their efforts, which, surprisingly enough to me, they didn't already have someone doing. So I just tagged along and filmed them as they raced."
