The Power of Chivalry!

WN has been working with Pua Mata (Sho-Air/Cannondale/WN) for a long time!  Pua has chivalry! 

Chivalry was originally conceived of as an aristocratic warrior code - the term derives from the French term chevalerie, meaning horse soldiery-involving, gallantry, & individual training &; service to others!

We work with a lot of pros, the list is long and their horsemanship is all important to us!

This little gal had a 10 min lead over 2nd place.

If any one think's that life is always easy, they be wrong!  Life is full of ups and downs, good breaks and bad breaks i.e. Pua's right fibula early season. She was very down, but she came back. 

Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.  Physical courage is in the face of physical pain, hardship, yet come back!

Respect cannot always be seen or observed by actions, but for those who practice chivalry, the outward display of respect is refreshing!  Respect is both given and received! 

This is Pua's 2nd "Stars-and-Stripes" US Marathon National Championship!

Jeremiah Bishop (Sho-Air Cannondale) Leader in the Pro XCT series has been in the game a long time!

We see them come and we see them go!  This is not an easy job, the pay is poor  and it takes years to do well, and above all, it takes balance!  The burn out rate is real!

For example, Jeremiah Bishop didn't have his best day, he took 5th at US Marathon National Championships,  the final day of the Ride Sun Valley Festival in Sun Valley, Idaho.  JB had flats, he took out a lady on the course and etc....

In any job, if you do it for a living, you can burn out!  So being in the balance game, we know how important it is to do something else, like leaning to balance in a river, even with bike shoes on!  Did you  know that the bike cleats give great grip to river rock!

Bishop is committed to his job, but also has learned that there are other things that can make you happy, like taking time to get in the river!  

BTW - Jeremiah was not fishing!  I had his rod all set up to catch, and he did!

The key to life and success is balance!

Sun Valley Bike Festival "Lots of rainbows & lots of WN'ers"

USA Marathon Nats ended the week long Sun Valley Bike Festival.

Where can you go and land 60 rainbows in a day and watch the mtb race at the same time?

There are those who fish, then there are those who catch!

There was a lot of catching Stars & Strips from WN'ers!

Congrats to them all!
