One of Lussi's two books

only helped get him into shape, but also helped their

relationship continue to grow as he got older, rather

than grow apart.

“The breakthrough came for me when I was 12-yearsold,”

Lussi says, recalling a moment racing at

ChesapeakeMan. “A guy looked at the number on my

leg and said, ‘Are you really 12 years old?’

“He said he’d just bought his 12-year-old son a $1,000

bike and he wouldn’t ride it and he asked me what I

should I should do,” Lussi recalls. “I said, ‘Why don’t

you ride with him. That was a turning point.”

Lussi currently holds these records and titles:
