Massive Amounts of Discipline

I just wanted to boast about how great it is to have massive amounts of discipline in my life. As some of you may know I have massive amounts of discipline in my life but I really don’t like to show it off. I may boast about it but to put it out there for everybody to see/read is disrespectful. Anyways, I exhibit this m.a.d. by making difficult tasks look easy.

For example: I always play the sweeper role on all group rides, a difficult task. I ably play this role because I have m.a.d. in my life. Some people think I ably play this role because I’m slow but this is not the case. It’s because I have m.a.d. If I didn’t have m.a.d. I would be the total jerk and leave everybody in the dust because I am actually super duper fast. Sometimes though, I don’t play sweeper but that’s because I am too impatient with everybody’s slow pace not because I lack in massive amounts of discipline in my life.


As a sweeper, this is my view. Thankfully I have m.a.d.

Another example of the m.a.d. in my life is how I never drink beer after rides, a very difficult task. Some people think I don’t drink beer because I hate the taste of beer but this is not true. I actually like the taste of beer as long as it comes in a tasteless, no calorie, no sugar, no hops, no barley, clear version – somewhat akin to water – if it looks like beer and tastes like beer, I don’t like it. Making difficult tasks look easy, the result of m.a.d. in my life.

Lastly, I never like boasting about how good a rider I am, a supremely difficult task indeed. When the time comes to clear some nasty technical portion of the trail I always get off the bike and walk it because I have m.a.d. and I don’t like showing people up. In reality I could totally clear that 17 foot drop on my rigid 29er but if you can’t do it on your 8? freeride bike, I exhibit m.a.d. in my life and I walk it… just like you. Most people incorrectly assume I do this because I have no skills, but this is not true. It’s because I have m.a.d.


My m.a.d. prevents me from one-upping Ryan Leech

In conclusion, I have massive amounts of discipline in my life. If you would like m.a.d. in your life too come ride with me and my m.a.d. might just rub off on you.

  1. There’s a theme on this article, it’s “Attack RL” not just yours truly, but RL as in Ryan Leech…

    But you’re right Jer, you’ve got M.A.D. You may have that, but I have F.A.T

    “Fast And Technical”
