Pain Creates The Pride

I really believe pain creates the pride.
The feeling of pride when you finish a race is so much bigger than all the pain of training.
Nothing comes for free. If it’s too easy, you might not respect the victory.

Putting it together

Every rider looks for the magic state when everything comes together during a race.
It’s difficult to achieve because so many moving parts need to work together perfectly.

The Balance Between Work And Play

Back in the days, I used to work hard and party harder.
It’s always a though choice between having a good time with your friends, while staying healthy and in shape when you are a pro athlete.
Especially mountain biking, which is a very demanding sport for the body, alcohol is the enemy.
