- Eat three times a day (not three + snacks).
- Super light climbing wheels work.
- Fruit is better than chocolate.
- Keep the knives in the kitchen drawer razor fucking sharp.
- Nothing reverses aging.
- The rider who moves first almost always loses.

- Better to let the winning move go and hope it gets brought back than to go with a winning move from which you can’t possibly win.
- Numbers and data are generally your enemy.

- Follow only great wheels.
- Practice descending inches off great wheels.
- If it’s not fun you’re doing it wrong.
- Lightweight, yes.
- Aero, yes x 3.
- Share. No one was born doing this.
- “What’s your name?” is the nicest thing you can ever say to a new face.
- Remembering it is the second.
- If you expect repayment, it’s not a favor.
- Does your wife care who won the climb or where you are on Strava? Neither does anyone else.
- Bicycles are for transportation.
- Everything eventually wears out, including you.
- Greet the day, clean your chain.
