#Throwback to one of many crossroads during the ride from Mora to Stockholm along #Dalkarlsvägen last summer.

I’ve started to think about projects for this summer. Any ideas?

Active

What does active mean?

It is not the simple act of busying oneself..nor just the movement of the body physical.

It is a holistic engagement that combines physical movement, awareness and mental stimulation and consciousness; and the belief and understanding that mental and physical activitiy are intrinsically linked.

To be physically active takes mental strength.

My father always told me...the hardest part of going for a run (cycle, swim, gym session etc) is getting changed.

The mental toughness enables the desire and willpower to decide to go for a run or walk or swim or cycle.

To have the motivation to see the activity to a conclusion. To push on with determination, to ignore the voices that say 'give up..take the easy option'. And the knowledge that physical activity stimualtes mental faculty and vice versa.

What use is a fit body if the mind is unstimulated, disinterestes and lazy?

Similarly what use is an active, stimualted brain if it is let down by an unhealthy lifestyle and idle sloth?

This year, depsite injury set backs and the temptations towards idleness, I am commited to #myactiveyear If I fail to motivate myself, to undertake physical exercise or continue to enlighten and challenge myself mentally, I have only myself to blame.

But the amazing people who share their inspiration and motivation via @myactiveyear give me the reason to get out and be active.
And of course to ensure every time I cycle or run I #rideformilla #runformilla and #smileformilla
So have a look at @myactiveyear and be inspired.

#tbt That time I climbed 10,000ft from sea level to the peak of Haleakala with @brentlorenzen | We had perfect conditions for the ride up but I didn’t love having to descend for almost 90’ to get back down to sea level | Thanks for reminding me of this ride @davespector .

Throwing it back to my first trip to South Africa in 2016, standing in the middle of the road with my bike one morning outside of Stellenbosch. Look forward to getting back soon for some high octane racing! #tbt #hoffracing #imsa #capeepic 📷 @et_photo_home

More deetz on FB:

When camps for the Asian Champs were announced a month ago, I spoke with the secretary, and two vice-presidents of Pakistan Cycling, requesting that I be allowed to stay and train in Islamabad during the week (the velodrome is 5 hours away). As the only amateur rider on the squad, I had various professional commitments including an immigration case and business-related meetings. I explained my coach's training and nutrition plan, outlined targets, offered to attend the camps every weekend and whenever I could during the week, and committed to paying my own travel costs. All three of them agreed, unequivocally. I know this because I called each of them separately and asked them to repeat it in their own words. I attended camps and clocked in times 0.4-0.6” faster than the other guy trying out for Man 1. My best performance was 25”, while his was 25.9” (for reference, the difference between 1st and 12th place in the f200 was 0.37” so 0.9” is enormous). A week before we were due to depart, an insider friend told me that I had been removed from the squad (no official correspondence thus far). When I called the higher-ups, they claimed my competitor had been putting in better times than me. I asked for the timings, they said there were no records of those attempts. I offered to drive to the velodrome that day and put in a better time, they said that timings weren’t the only consideration and that camp attendance mattered. I reminded them of our agreement – one of them admitted that he lied and taunted me saying that there was nothing I could do about it. The gist is, the guy they picked was from the same province as the president and secretary, and it looks good for them if they’ve got provincial representation on the national team. The other team members were from the Army and utilities departments, so I was expendable.
Of course, what good is my word, when you’ve got numbers. I drove to the track this weekend, and without warming up (after a 5 hour drive), unshaven legs, no aero wheels, and on a windy AF outdoor track, tied my own PB. Grab a stopwatch, time it for yourself, and tell me if it’s faster than 26 seconds.
