I thought this was really old news. Didn't he make this announcement after he had that bad crash last year? Maybe he didn't announce it but I thought Julia (his wife) alluded to it after the crash.
All this is is just media grabbing. He never succeeded at the elite level of Tri. The he got injured. It was over because it never really started.
Good luck to Webb on a future of coaxing or whatever.
Webb seemed to believe the magic was in him and hard work. It was but to run a Ferrari everything has to be tuned right and the driver needs to be smart with a great pit crew.
Webbs first coach ruined him by making him think he was special and being receptive to webs doubts at michigan. What Webb could have been with a steady progression was so much more than what he was.
Inexcusable to peak for the trials and not the game. On the coach.
Few careers will sparkle so bright yet cause so much wondering of what might have been.
Better for webb not to have got the AR high school record. He became a time chaser in training etc. never became a racer.
