I just had to post this picture of Ariana as well because this depicts the hardship of what we do every single day. Seeing this is fine with me as a Coach. But as a father, it pains me to see my daughter go through this pain and hardship. As it has been said, many people only see the Gold Medals won but only few see the pain and the hardwork behind it. With the World Championships only 3 weeks away, we are going all out in shedding sweat and blood in preparing for this. Be assured that when Ariana lines up at the starting line on race day, she has done what is needed to fight it all out for that World Champion crown for the Philippines. (c) Jude Fernando
Kids are the best learners. Teach them the Core Rules and the right methods to use in riding their bikes and you would be surprise on the kind of riding they can do on the trail despite their very young age. Like my 8 year old Lexi here, who right now is fearless and confident on her bike when she rides the intimidating courses. I have no doubt in my mind that she will be great too someday, just like her older sister, Ariana. Maybe even better. 😊
If you have these awesome guys and gals to train with every single day like I do, it really never becomes tiring. In fact, i can sense that I am aging backwards and feeling younger each day. 😆 What is even more invigorating for me is when I see each of them accomplishing their goals, not only on the bike but in life too. Everytime that happens, I tell myself the hardwork is all worth it.
This 44 year old Lady, May Santos (in the picture with me and Ariana), bagged 5th Place in her first major mountain bike race yesterday, against women mostly half her age. And today, instead of resting, she reports for our off the bike workouts in the gym. That is what I call dedication. The same dedication that is evident in Ariana. So it wont be a surpise that we see her win a mountain bike race anytime soon. This will prove that our concept applies to any age, gender, and level. And, remind us all that it is indeed Never Too Late.
