I actually think the McCarthy Special is SPECIAL. I’ve tried it 3 or 4 times and I’m nearly there. I’m now failing on the last 3 minute session. I will finish it and get all my stars, just got to keep working hard and chipping away.
I agree with Noel Nunkovich . . . . . listen to the podcast where Mike McCarthy is interviewed. He comments about “being prepared to fail, success isn’t a given right; but working hard will help you succeed; learn how to push yourself and you will see improvements, if you don’t you won’t”. It was very interesting.
I can remember an interview that Vincenzo Nibali did in one of the Grand Tours (can’t remember which one) after a particularly bad day. He basically said “Can’t change it, its done and it’s history, tomorrow is another day but I will lean from the mistakes”.
We can all think like this, we’ll only get better by hard work and effort . . . . . “Talent alone doesn’t guarantee success, if talent doesn’t work hard, hard work will beat talent.”
So everyone keep working at the McCarthy Special and when you crack it you will be a better fitter rider
