Liz Chrisman portrait

A long time ago, I read, "believe you can & you're halfway there." That 100% applies to all areas of life, especially mountain biking. Whether it's looking forward on the trail, positive self-talk, or seeing the big picture of a trail project, believing is pivotal to success on and off the trail.
