Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

The fastest cyclist ever (QUARANTINE: DAY 37)

Once upon a time, long time ago, I had the privilege of watching the fastest and best cyclist ever and he was Spanish. He won 5 consecutive Tours de France and many other races, apart from getting the gold medal in the Olympic Games and breaking the one-hour world record cycling!!! He was Miguel Indurain.

What I'm learning from being trapped in quarantine with my ex-fiance (The Guardian)



1 comentario:

  1. Miguel Indurain, one of the best cyclists that Spain and the world have had.

    The titles speak for themselves, this man has practically won everything, my grandfather and my father told me a lot about this man, because he is a very tall man, which means that his legs were very long, so each pedal stroke that It gave as he already took a large piece from you, the best thing about this man is that he was sitting all the time, while his rivals had to get up to be able to catch him and get next to him and follow his rhythm.

    For me this man is the best cyclist that Spain has. My grandfather told me once that in the Spanish Cycling Tour, in one of the stages, he had a very tough rival, an Italian who was competing against him, but Miguel started hitting the pedals and left and no one caught him and won the stage.

    This man has done a lot for Spain, that is why he is one of the best cyclists this country has.
