I RECKON SOME OF YA ARE GONNA BE PISSED, but I really do think KOMs are for losers - PRs are everything.
Who cares if I get a KOM? I mean, it's cool... for sure. But, stay with me.
If it's a bunch of 10 year olds I stole the KOM from? If the wind was howling from behind? If I started at the back of a big group and surfed my way to the front? If, if, if...
If it's my KOM, it just means I'm the fastest guy who's been recorded. That's it.
If you've got the KOM? If you're a pro, any kind of pro? if you used any of the above mentioned tactics? If you're just a hell of a lot faster? If, if, if...
I honor that effort and I use it to inspire myself to dig deeper. But... that's all.
Because I can't control you. I can control - delusion or not - myself. Therefore, I think PRs are always better than KOMs.
I know the conditions when my effort is recorded. I know the work I've put in. I know whether or not it's a legit PR. I know whether or not to celebrate.
Comparing myself to others weak.
Comparing myself to yesterday is all that matters... starting with Am I having fun?
