How to win a bike race

“The key to successful time trialing is winning the fight with yourself. You must never give into the pain by reducing your effort. Always remember that every other good rider is hurting just as much – you are not the exception. Pain is normal and it is necessary. Just look at Francesco Moser’s face during his rides for the world one-hour record! Anyone who does not hurt is not going as fast as he can. Pain is what guarantees success. So don’t think about pain as a negative thing, think about it as proof you are riding the race correctly. Let the pain build your psychology. Make motivation the dominant force. Concentrate on just the one thing: steady hard work.”
