Why Race?

I was just sitting here having my coffee and that age-old question popped up in my head? Why do I race? OK, the thought didn't come outta nowhere. You see, the last few nights I've been reading The Rider, by Tim Krabbe. So far, I would say it's the best book on actual bicycle racing I've found. It would be a great book for any racer to read, and for bike widows in particular. I dunno if a non-racer can appreciate it, but it's definitely a look inside the mind of a bicycle racer, of what happens during a race and why we race in the first place. There are some sentences in this book I read over and over so my simple mind can soak them in fully it's that good. Why do you race?

Highly Suggested.
