Cycling requires mastery of many things. You have to master handling your bike, pedaling efficiently, hydrating, nutrition, timing gu's, cornering, sprinting, bridging, pushing your body, learning lessons and moving on - but above all you must master recovery.
For as hard as one must push their body, it takes three times as much recovery to enable a repeat performance. Time spent laying down is money in the bank. And as much as I would love to be seeing all the wonderful things the state of Wisconsin has to offer - I also know the inside of my guest bedroom like the back of my hand. It's a glamorous lifestyle, let me tell you.
Tonight is the Grafton Crit- a stop on the USA Pro Crit series. Huge crowds, big cash premes and ladies ready to throw down will ensure a true test of grit and determination. I have a game plan - a confidence building, ninja moving, leg throbbing good bike racing strategy. Here's to making it happen.
