A TALE BEHIND THE 15-YEAR-OLD
Mountain biking is more than the bike. Every terrain is a very different experience. Being a young member and novice rider to his cycling team, the prospect of riding up one mountain on the bumpy and rutted roads seemed almost impossible and not at all like something had he thought he would do.
Without a proper training, Rowie’s father convincingly took him to races since he was 13. Unfortunately, he stopped for a few times in the race, pushing his bike, and staring hopelessly at other cyclists. He comprehended that his stamina was certainly not sufficient to be one of the racers in a competition. Most of the time, Rowie felt extremely ignorant as he had no idea what he was in the race for. “I hardly climbed a mountain. I was unfamiliar with descending.
All reasons I would have used to say: I am only 13 years old. I can’t possibly do it.” Things, finally became worse when he turned out to be the last rider after the cut-off time. Rowie’s father, who had been staying by his side encouraged him to not give up, in spite of being the last one in the race, it is important to practice good sportsmanship. This helpless young guy was determined to make it to the finish line.
