“To fight the good fight is one of the bravest and noblest of life’s experiences. Not the bloodshed and the battle of man with man, but the grappling with mental and spiritual adversaries that determines the inner caliber of the contestant. It is the quality of the struggle put forth by a man that proclaims to the world what manner of man he is far more than may be by the termination of the battle.
It matters not nearly so much to a man that he succeeds in winning some long-sought prize as it does that he has worked for it honestly and unfalteringly with all the force and energy there is in him. It is in the effort that the soul grows and asserts itself to the fullest extent of its possibilities, and he that has worked will, persevering in the face of all opposition and apparent failure, fairly and squarely endeavoring to perform his part to the utmost extent of his capabilities, may well look back upon his labor regardless of any seeming defeat in its result and say, “I have fought a good fight.”
As you throw the weight of your influence on the side of the good, the true and the beautiful, your life will achieve an endless splendor. It will continue in the lives of others, higher, finer, nobler than you can even contemplate”
― Hugh B. Brown
Thank you for the response to the demo and practice fits using the new ErgoFit technology. I’ve been considering different platforms and technology for the past year and went to a Medicine In Cycling conference last year where one of the primary people behind the system presented. I’m excited about delivering an even higher level of fitting in the months to come, and a system that can be used in a mobile setting with consistent, repeatable results.
Sadly Mammoth Tuff was canceled due to the National Forest Closure in California that may end this Friday, unfortunately there were too many unknowns for the organizers to safely stage a large event.
I’ll be staying close to home and riding in the Adventure Revival ride out of Woodacre this weekend instead. This event benefits the Norcal High School League and Marin County Bicycle Coalition, and I’m stoked to be a part of it!
Noah Hayes will be racing in his first World Cup on Sunday , the 19th. You can watch the race on Red Bull TV HERE
Studies Of Interest
On the bike fitting front- this is one of several studies published by the Science To Sport group. Read the abstract, especially the last sentence, then please do your mobility and flexibility work religiously 🙂
I’m enjoying Pearls From The Practice Of Life by John Chuck,M.D.. Tons of easy-to-digest, actionable advice and thoughts on a wide span of things. You’ll take positives away, I promise.
Kudos and Results!
