FROM THE ED­I­TOR...

“Fail­ure is sim­ply the op­por­tu­nity to be­gin again, this time more in­tel­li­gently…” As I sat on a coach with a bunch of for­lorn Ger­man speak­ers who, like me, had just pulled out at the half­way point of the gru­elling 240km Ötz­taler Rad­marathon in the Aus­trian Tirol, this quote from Henry Ford wasn’t go­ing through my head. Hav­ing re­flected on my fail­ure to not fin­ish a big ride, it makes sense. I know ex­actly what I did wrong and I won’t make the same mis­takes again. I’ll keep train­ing af­ter achiev­ing one goal, I won’t rest on my lau­rels and I’ll say no next time a col­league sug­gests I do

an in­tense and very se­ri­ous bike race in Aus­tria!
