The top of the podium is reserved for those athletes who train their bodies and minds to perform at their very best. One of the most important yet overlooked areas to master is an athlete’s psychological skills.
The Cycling Mind is an expert guide to developing the elite mindset needed for peak performance – both on and off the bike. Written by leading sports psychologist Ruth Anderson, who has worked with globally renowned Olympic and World champion cyclists, this book will teach you everything about the psychology strategies used in elite competition. You’ll discover the techniques top athletes use to excel: from race preparation to harnessing performance anxiety, and from how to recover from a win (as well as a loss!), to how to build an effective support team.
The Cycling Mind gives you the essential tools to ride – and live life – at your personal best.
