The Mind of a Cyclist - podcast
edited December 2014
A lengthy, though insightful podcast featuring Vicky Pendleton, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Sir Chris Hoy and Steve Peters.
Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom
Listened to it on 5 live last night, thought it might just be a rehash of things that have been said before but some really interesting parts to it, well worth a listen.
Still a minor (very minor!) dig at Fenton for Toussuiregate...
We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence
Listened to it last night, glad I did and would recommend
This was good, but it really suffered from a lack or articulation and focus.
They asked some interesting questions but the answers meandered and really didn't get to the crux of the issue.
Shame, but definitely some good titbits.
I'm always thinking of the consequences of my actions. Some riders don't do that; they just live in the moment. People say I have no panache, but I'm very calculating in what I do.
When we're in the heat of the moment, I'm very business-like. There are two sides to me: the emotional character who loves sport and the one who is calculating.
Panache is great, but at the end of the day I probably wouldn't be where I am today if I was like that.
