THERE ARE TWO THINGS I KNOW FOR SURE WHEN IT COMES TO BICYCLE RACING.
- Time = Speed
- More Racing = More Energy
We all know the first one by now. No one said it better than the great Eddie Merckx when prescribed piles of miles. If you want to go faster ride more.
The second one goes like this... the more you race the less energy you waste on nerves. The prep the night before, the drive over, the sign in, the warm up, the waiting on the start line... it all becomes routine, second nature. Which is why the cooler heads always perform best when it counts. They have more energy.
Which begs the question... is there any luck involved in bicycle racing?
Not like puddle skimming golf shots, tipped football passes, or the like.
We don't depend on luck. We depend on hard work and properly maintained equipment.
But, then again... it would be darn fine to be lucky enough to win a set of ENVE™ Wheels.
After all we can do, it's nice to know we're rolling on the best equipment.
