Monday Blues: Never Failed, Never Tried

Remember the single shot of this mildly spectacular crash? Well, I had a sequence of five or six frames, and was saving them for a Monday Blues.

I guess whether you consider this a valiant effort, or a foolhardy attempt depends on whether you lean toward the risk taking side of life, or the play it safe side. In wonder about the thought process. A goodly number of riders were bunny hopping the steps one at a time, but the idea to attempt both at once must have been preceded by belief. There had to have been a certain level of confidence in the racer, that he could clear both steps. I actually think he made it too, but his front wheel either caught when he landed, or he grabbed to much front brake and went over. Or both. The rider got up right away and continued on, maybe a little worse for wear. Another couple seconds behind in the race. A little more dirty.

If you have never failed, perhaps it is because you have never tried.

Blue: A color, a mood or emotion, a genre of music. Tune in each Monday for another installment of the Blues, with a cycling twist.
