Throughout their many interview and books, one theme remains, there is no Team Hoyt without each other. We we will still compete, and we are planning to do 20 races per year, but it will be more Olympic distance size triathlons, and not full marathons, but half marathons, 10 millers, and races like that. Some riders have personal chairs that they will bring to the event. The only part that makes me sad about their story is that his marriage fell apart because of the time he spent training and racing and working. They are pioneers of special education and should be commended on their hard work, commitment and spirit. I loved this amazing story.
In my personal opinion, his writing was a bit dull and often repetitive.
Dick and Rick Hoyt (Team Hoyt)
Apr 20, Beth rated it liked it. They are an inspiration, that goes without saying, but hearing someone go on and on about all the publicity they've received and all the people who are inspired by their story starts to feel a little icky after awhile. Team Hoyt is proud to be working with the following sponsors who have contributed a great deal of time, money and passion to help Dick and Rick Hoyt continue participating in racing events across the country www. I am sure glad there are people like the Hoyts who are actively making our world a better place! The beginning in particular is badly written and no-one is interested in how much his first house cost. The Hoyts are also using social media as another motivational tool.
