The world’s most famous cycling race, the Tour de France, is in full gear, but, as usual, with the cloud of some high-profile doping scandals hanging overhead.
Cycling has been dubbed by some as the “world’s dirtiest sport.” Local former professional rider Clay Moseley can appreciate why, but told the Monitor during an interview last month that he doesn’t think the moniker tells the whole story.
Moseley was on the U.S. National team in the mid-1990s and rubbed shoulders with several of the top racers of the time, including seven-time Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong.
One of Moseley’s crowning achievements was a win at the 1995 Pan American Games. Moseley won the men’s individual road time trial, which followed up on a 1994 win at the U.S. National time trial championship. Moseley won the Pan Am Games event by more than four minutes, an eternity in top-level cycling.
While Moseley doesn’t race competitively anymore, he is still a big promoter of the Tour de Los Alamos and is involved with XTerra, including coaching some up-and-coming local racers.
“That’s in my past,” Moseley said of high-level competitive cycling. “That’s not the same sport to me now.”
