The Human Interest Story Few Have Bothered With

So much ink has been spilled about Lance and cancer, it's crowded out other feel-good, taking lemons and making lemonade pieces related to the Tour.

One such story is that of Garmin-Slipstream's sprinter Tyler Farrar's dad. Dr. Ed Farrar was a cyclist, got his son into cycling, and, was paralyzed when a car hit him riding to work last fall. Paralyzed from the waist down, he can no longer work as a surgeon. But he's working at the hospital and riding his hand-crank bike nearly every day.

Here's the story on ESPN.com.
