"I used to ski race as a kid, and biking is the best way to stay in shape for that. Now with car racing, I find biking is the best way to work on your cardio, and your lower body and core strength. It’s just an incredible sport. I love it. It just calms you down and it’s mediation in motion." --Patrick Dempsey
A proven movie and television A-list actor, Patrick Dempsey has also proved his skill and potential on the racetrack. Following encouragement from wife Jillian to pursue his racing dreams, Patrick began seriously training and racing in 2004. His top 10 performances during the 2009 season at the wheel of his Dempsey Racing Mazda RX-8 GT underscore his emergence as a “real deal” professional sports car racing driver. Living in Southern California to perform his “day job”, Patrick incorporates frequent rides on his Specialized Roubaix SL2 as part of his training regime for performance in the racing car cockpit.
