My teammate, and one of the best hill climbers in the world, Elisa Longo Borghini said; “It’s just amazing, you really can’t imagine, we’re really just trying to hurt each other as much as possible. It’s crazy.”

In the same conversation we were talking about suffering. My French teammate Audrey was joking about how she didn’t feel like suffering in that day’s race, Elisa said; “I just love it. I know I’m suffering but I’m just thinking, I want to make them suffer more!”

2. ETAPA EMAKUMEEN BIRA 2014, OÑATI (by Txirrindulariak Web)

Cycling is such a humbling sport, because even when you think you’ve got the knack of it, you are thrown another curve ball and faced with a choice: use the curve ball as an opportunity to learn and grow, or to let it get you down. I learned last week racing in the Basque country that abandoning can be even harder than pushing through the pain, but knowing when to quit is a lesson every athlete has to learn. It’s important to listen to your gut and trust your instincts!
