How to Keep Cool and Stay Pumped

1. Take a deep breath, focusing on riding your race when you exhale.
2. Expect the unexpected--a flat tire or a broken spoke. Visualize yourself handling any eventuality. Nothing can rattle you.
3. Smile no matter what. Mimic the cringe-grin of Lance Armstrong ascending a mountain.
