A west Tennessee man is making cycling history as one of just three Americans participating in the esteemed Tour de France.
Nate Brown, 25, earned a polka dot jersey, which is given to the cyclist dubbed “King of the Mountains” for gaining the most points while reaching mountain summits first.
Brown is clearly a natural, having learned to ride a bike by the age of two on back-country roads just outside Covington. Now, he wears a coveted Tour de France jersey.
Brown’s 21 days of cycling — a total of 2,200 miles — began right here in the Volunteer State.
