THE SAFER YOU RACE, the riskier it actually is.  Nobody ever won playing it safe.  But, that's not the issue.  I mean it is, but not how you think.  The real risks, and they are real...

... take place well in front of the Start line.

Winners aren't taking risks between the Start and Finish.  It's the losers that do that...

... losers lose time when racing, lots of it, by making mistakes or playing it so gawldern safe they never see the action.

Do you think Julian Alaphilippe had never practiced his incredible winning move to be World Champion in 2020? 

Of course he had, we'd seen it in numerous A, B and C races... and no doubt countless efforts he'd made on training rides.

He was there to win.

To the viewers it looks risky, to the winner it looks like the surest path to victory.

Train risky, race confident.

For those of you who took the risk of answering the question in the previous post... the winner is Margie D, and giving the Exceptional Effort to Crazy Mike for his very specific and incorrect guess that it was Cody (the young buck I chased all the way to the finish).

The answer was Shattered by The Rolling Stones - best RnR band ever according to John T.
