WHEN THE HALLUCINATIONS TOOK HOLD, THE FORMER SOLDIER USED TO TRY TO FIGHT THE SHADOWS - OR HIS SUPPORT TEAM, AS THEY FED HIS DELUSIONS OF PSYCHOPATHS IN THE WOODS TO MAKE HIM PEDAL FASTER.

THX @johnlaughlin FOR THE SPOT.
Sad news. I read this article a few years about about him and found new inspiration for those tough training days.
Interesting story about a total freak, as well as how the human brain uses pain to try and tell us to stop when we can actually go twice as far as we think we can. So when you’re out there and you think you might die if you go any further stop being a pussy cause actually you can do twice as much.
