Taking It In Stride

I had the pleasure of meeting motorcycling legend Kevin Schwantz a few years back.  I happen to be a big fan of motorcycle racing, so when reading Matthew Miles' recent piece for CycleWorld (http://www.cycleworld.com/2014/04/18/motogp-update-kevin-schwantz-talks-about-world-champion-marc-marquez/?onswipe_redirect=no) where Schwantz offered his comments on young Spanish MotoGP champion Marc Marquez, I couldn't help translating the words of the veteran racer into a lesson on life.

I was inspired to blog about it not by the substantial talent of Marquez, but by the strength of character his riding style - as interpreted by Schwantz - embodies.


"A great rider makes that mistake and realizes it before it causes him any kind of drama." 
                                                          -Kevin Schwantz


Taking mistakes in stride, then calmly correcting them before they cause you any drama?  There's a life lesson in there.
