08/10/2019 (09:30AM - 10:00AM) (Saturday) : Today, we become part of a peloton with John Degenkolb, one of the most inspiring cyclists in the Tour de France. As an underdog who trained harder than anyone to get a spot in the Tour de France, he suffered a serious injury that would have left most athletes dejected and on the side lines - but not John, who was determined to get back in the race. His determination sent waves back to his home in Houston, Texas, where he raised enough funds to rebuild the track he grew up racing on after it was devastated by a hurricane. Then, we hit the stables, where a family has dedicated their lives to horse training and racing. Uriah St. Lewis and his family work hard together to get their horses ready for the biggest races, and their hard work eventually won a Grade 1 title after 30 years of training horses. Plus, Greenbrier County was devastated by a flood that left many homes, businesses and lives destroyed. But the resilience of the county, with the help of the famous Greenbrier Golf Club, saved the lives of many and helped Greenbrier County get back on course.
