Khary Ward ventured into bicycle racing late last season with several starts in the Prospect Park series. Despite some close calls in dicey category 5 events Khary caught the racing bug and has spent this winter honing his fitness and skills. As a student at the Professional Performing Arts High School where his speciality is classical violin, Khary comes to the sport with more than his share of discipline and commitment. Khary has already proven himself a rider to watch in the coming season; despite living in Brooklyn he makes the trek to the George Washington Bridge for weekend training rides in the hills “over the river”. At six feet tall and 175 pounds Khary is built for contests of speed, but he is determined to “train his weaknesses” on the inclines of River Road and beyond. A recently acquired set of rollers has given Khary a new perspective on training though he claims he hasn’t tried practicing the violin while on the rollers, we expect nothing less of him by the end of the season! Look for Khary in Organic Athlete team kit in CRCA and area senior races.
