At the start of January, I highlighted Fabio Wibmer’s Best of 2018 and said the thing that impressed me most about it wasn’t his riding, but the number of times he showed himself failing in order to succeed (in other words he falls off a lot). Roll the clock forward to this week and Matt Jones released his biggest fails compilation and in it he lays out exactly the same statement.
“Crashing and failing is important; you’ll never understand how far you’ve got in anything without failing”.
We all appreciate your pain Matt!
If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
