The Dream Gifts Rad Dads Want for Father’s Day
Davis Phinney—two stage Tour de France winner and Olympic medalist—laughed out loud when I asked him what gear he wanted for Father’s Day. “I have never actually expected a gift for Father’s Day, my kids have given me a lot of fatherly joy,” he said. “Because of my background an my son’s status as a pro [cyclist], I am well swagged out as a dad.”
Phinney was excited to talk about memorable rides with his 19-year-old daughter Kelsey and 22-year-old son Taylor, but really wouldn’t budge on gear.
