Nice to see this story posted. Before I had my first valve replacement it was really hard to find any encouraging stories or information as to what the surgery would mean to a cyclist. I had a valve job at the age of 40, another at 45, and can happily report that in the years between (I'm 49 now) I've been able to continue racing mtn bikes, including 24 hour solos, plus commute 50k round trip to work, and get from 5,000 - 9,000k of riding in each year. It's a life, not a death, sentence!
