"The ultimate is not to win, but to reach within the depths of your capabilities and compete against yourself to the greatest extent possible. When you do that you can walk about with pride, no matter what place you finished." -Billy Mills, Olympic Gold Medalist
Endurance sports are arguably the most grueling and demanding physical endeavors Athletes can undertake. Whether it is an MTB race, gravel event, cyclocross race, criterium, or Gran Fondo, defining success solely through wins and losses would undermine the sacrifice required to tackle these great events.
That is why the words of Olympian Billy Mills and the mindset it suggests are pertinent to Athletes everywhere!
In the closing chapters of The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, And Thrive, we get a deeper understanding of what it means to achieve our very best and compete against ourselves.
Check out Part 3 of our Podcast review of The Champion's Mind, in which, Coaches Brian and Brady cover the final chapters and the most important skills to develop a Champion's Mind!
Want some cool BWC Swag like socks, hats, or a race day bag? Of course you do!

Until Next Time, Be Safe, Train Hard, & Have Fun!
