My advice to beginner racers #4: Keep yourself motivated

The question posed by Anneloes (Adventures of a beginner cyclist blog #4) was: I am wondering, how do you keep yourself motivated for competitive racing after winning practically everything anywhere? 

Thanks for you questions Anneloes - what a great achievement! Keeping me focused and motivated is no problem at all. I have a huge passion for cycling and thrive on the 'cat and mouse' games that form a part of every race. Each race is different, which is what makes it exciting. With the level of women's cycling at an all time high, we have to be really clever and creative with our tactics. And with every race comes the opportunity to outsmart our competitors. It doesn't matter which type of race or what what kind of role I take on within it (leader, domestique, captain) - the thrill of that race always keeps me motivated!
