Thomas Logue was content with being a couch potato the summer before his senior year of high school—until one day in early July 2005 while channel surfing he landed on the Le Tour de France. He had heard of the annual cycling event and knew who Lance Armstrong was, but never saw the nearly month-long race live. “It was awesome to see cyclists climbing snow covered mountains and sprinting shoulder-to-shoulder,” Logue said. Following the conclusion of the race, Logue, an undergraduate student at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) and president of the Cal Poly Materials Engineering Student Society that heads the university’s Material Advantage chapter, had to try it.
