If you’re nervous, fair hang out in the back and take it easy. But where you stage is often where you’ll remain, so if you’re seeking out for an incredible result, confident and stand proudly in the front of the pack. Love all your blogs and race reports, exceptionally honest. I remember after you had surgery in your back and thinking how will he ever race once more. You're an inspiration to all.
