Prometheus has long been a symbol of the rebel hero, a revolutionary challenging an oppressive order. Dubbed "the patron saint of the proletariat," he is a god who sided with mankind against the immortals, bestowing on them enlightenment and the great gift of fire, crimes for which he is punished by Zeus, the universe's reigning tyrant at the time of the myth.

"UGHHHHHH -- my leggg!" I felt as if I had been hit by a gunshot. After six hours of battling 40- to 50-mph headwinds, in the Amargosa Mountains of Death Valley I reached for a water bottle, and my right hamstring balled up in a stabbing, paralyzing knot that felt like the muscle was ripping off the bone. Frantic, I braked, then toppled off the bike. "Sorry guys, sorry guys, sorry," I babbled, squirming on the ground. Ron, Steve and Keith rushed out of the support van -- speechless.
