It takes a lot of effort to compete with the big guns.
It was my first attempt, so I was really nervous.
“What’s your aim today?” someone asked me.
“To win of course”, I replied, mustering confidence.
“Do you feel the road will wind uphill all the way for you?”
“Not at all… It will be easy enough”, I said.
Later, I found out… the road did wind uphill.
It wasn’t easy pedaling up the French hillside.
