Most of us want to be the star, or at least recognized but is that really your place?
I’m a support rider and I like doing it. Working in a good team for a good leader can be more rewarding than winning a race for yourself.
That’s Steve Cummings speaking to Procycling Magazine in the January 2012 issue. I love that you don’t hear about ‘getting my chances’, he is happy to work for a good leader, seeing others succeed is a better reward.
Next time you want to get the spotlight, maybe see if it’s better to help someone else get it. You might find that it feels better than getting it yourself.
