1. Why are You Doing the Race?
To develop the right mindset, you need to know why you are racing. Is it for fun, training, or the most important event of the season?

2. Have Specific Goals
Write them down and place them where you will see them. They can be subjective-finish the race with a smile, or specific-a certain time on the bike split. It is common to have three goals: a "super achievable", then a "solid race", and an "amazing race".

3. Practice the Little Things
Smooth transitions, how to change a flat or fix a dropped chain...be prepared as the little things can easily become overbearing.

4. Study the Race Materials
Understand the entire weekend-when to be where, how to get there, the course, etc. These free handouts provided in your packet are there for a reason.

5. Get Ready in Your Head
Visualize a perfect race and begin doing so several weeks before the actual race. Practice makes perfect.

6. Have Fun!
Personally, I think that this is the most important. We have all asked ourselves when we are having a hard spot in our races," Why am I doing this?" The answer should be because you enjoy it. Smile, it might make you faster!
