RACEDAY, I love it. Everything about it. The months of training, the weeks of bike prep, the openers the day before, the startline jitters, the first pedal stroke, the finish line, the afterglow...
... so, let's stop calling it RaceDay.
There is a much better title:
Inspired Testing Day.
Well, think about it.
We always have our most inspired and epic efforts on raceday. Nothing brings out our best than...
... the energy of the masses getting after it.
It's a test to see how well we do against others.
They feel it.
We feel it.
The leaderboard shows it.
What the leaderboard doesn't always show, never shows really...
... is what was left in our reserves.
A whole lot.
Nothing is always the goal for me.
To know we gave all we had to give,
regardless of circumstances,
is the test.
We're the only ones that know...
- Everything was perfect
- Nothing worked.
- Work took out a bunch of training
- The derailler malfunctioned
- The baby was colicky
- We got sick the night before
- yada, yada, yada
... and it's best to keep it that way, to ourselves,
Hard to do,
but, still the best policy.
So, whenever your next race is,
I hope/pray/trust all goes perfect for you...
... either way, I know I'll be inspired if you let me know how it all went down.
Is it really R.I.P. for Rip On RaceDay?...
... nah, just wanted to try an inspire ya to give it everything.
It's your test.
