    How great!!! Please keep sharing, it’s you mums with jobs and families that inspire me the most at this point in my life. Keep at it!

    What a buzz to read how u overcame those nagging voices. Congratulations. It sure feels great to ride a bike and taking on the racing team leadership must be so much more. Good to read how you just got up after that crash and kept on pedaling. Persistence pays :)

    Hats off, respect. Gave me a kick up the @@@@ I needed.

    I’ve coached a few ladies, with good success, but one thing very different to guys was the extreme level of self doubt. I found it very difficult to handle.

    One of the worst amplifiers of this was internet stalking of others results. Constantly checking pre-reg to see who signed up. then checking their results and using this to feed self doubt and find reasons not to race or just to sit in. Riders would psyche themselves out before the starting line or just not turn up. Far worse with ladies then men, in my experience.

      This is not a gender specific issue, I have done exactly what you are describing in multiple sports.

        It’s far more common for ladies.

      So, as their coach, how do you help them to overcome this obstacle? Or are you just complaining on the internet?

    Well done, Belamie! Not sure if you abbreviated your story, or if it was edited for length . . . but would love for it to have been much longer. Thanks for sharing! :-)

    Terrific story, terrific example. What’s the expression about kids not listening to what you say, but copying what you do.
    Riding with Macey, Maddy and the girls must make you feel about 21.
