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!
