Cycling Tips

Don’t fail your starts in cycling races

My cycling story and my crazy challenge


Welcome on my blog about the cycling tactics and strategies.


The beginning

Doctors were not able to find the source of my cycling decline. Nevertheless I never gave up seeking the mystery and I never stopped racing in spite of my loss of leg power.
