THERE ARE 3 SKILLS ALL SUCCESSFUL RACERS MASTER, but one is by far the most important.
... starts with registering for the race and ends with crossing the finish line.
There's avoiding mistakes...
... the more you race the more you develop your PEDALsense and consequently avoid mistakes.
But, the most important by far to keep moving...
... no matter how bad it hurts, no matter how bad things get, no matter what...
... keep moving!
Keep pedaling. Keep eating. Keep drinking.
I remember a really tough road race I did outside of Bakersfield. It was just a vicious course. Legendary. It was my first time racing it. I was dropped fairly early. There was no way I was going to finish anywhere near the top 10. I was already 40 guys down.
But, I kept pedaling and eating and drinking.
This isn't some comeback story at all.
It's a story of picking off one racer after another until I passed a former California State Champion, a guy who'd beat me like a drum for years. Yes, he was having a bad day.
Did I podium? No.
I wound up 18th or 12th or something, but it didn't matter. I beat the champ, once. That shiz gives ya confidence. Ya can't buy that, but you can use it a lot in the future.
So many quit when it gets hard.
But not us.
That's ain't our way. Ever.
We keep pedaling. Always. In everything we do.
