The Commonwealth Games - part 2

So how does it feel to be beaten? I guess we all know that feeling as competitors - at least I hope all of my readers race, have raced, or hope to! The Commonwealth Games in Melbourne has given some hope and a little success to some competitors; and ground them down in others. Years of goal-setting, training and racing come down to your event and - unlike club racing where you get another crack at it maybe next week - then it's over. How does that feel, to miss a medal in a really big event? Is it OK to set a PB? Is it OK to simply do your best? The reporting on RoadCycling UK has been very personal and very British in orientation. It's worth a read.
