Bush leads ride for wounded warriors

AMARILLO, Texas — Presidential wheels rolling through Palo Duro Canyon could create some positive spin for the state park’s rugged mountain-biking trails and other features, according to those involved in events related to the The Bush Center Warrior 100K Ride.

Former President George W. Bush brought the three-day, 100-kilometer ride to Palo Duro Canyon State Park Thursday through Saturday.
The ride is designed to draw attention to the service and sacrifice of military men and women wounded in the war on terrorism, spokeswoman Hannah Abney said.

In 2004 in Iraq, Elrod's femur was shattered by gunfire. He retired as a corporal and returned to North Texas.
His invitation to the Warrior 100K came just a few weeks ago after his three-man team won an adventure race of mountain biking, kayaking, and land navigation. The event is part of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative.
