The race of truth
Este libro, escrito por Leigh Timmis bajo el título 'The Race of Truth', es una historia real de transformación personal frente al reloj. En 2018, Leigh se convirtió en la persona más rápida en recorrer Europa en bicicleta, rompiendo el récord mundial anterior por 8 días y 17 horas. Pero para alcanzar el éxito, Leigh tuvo que enfrentarse a sus problemas mentales, que le habían impedido alcanzar su máximo potencial. Con el apoyo de expertos en psicología y ciencia deportiva, Leigh emprendió un viaje más allá del físico, descubriendo los asombrosos logros que podemos alcanzar cuando nos enfrentamos a nuestros más profundos miedos.
Being the fastest cyclist in the world at the start line means nothing if your mind isn't strong enough to get you to the finish line.
In 2018, Leigh Timmis became the fastest person to cycle across Europe - in just 16 days, 10 hours and 45 minutes - breaking the previous world record by an astonishing 8 days and 17 hours. But when he set out to break the record, Leigh wasn't just trying to conquer the road.
As he prepared his body for this ultra-endurance world record attempt, Leigh realized that he would have to confront deeper problems to make it to the finish line. Although test results showed that he already had the physical ability of an elite athlete, something was holding him back: his troubled mind.
With the support of psychologists and sports science experts, Leigh confronted the past that had left him with vulnerabilities he would need to understand and overcome in the pursuit of performance. Then, cycling for 14 hours a day, from the west coast of Portugal to the edge of Siberia, he embarked on far more than just a physical journey.
The Race of Truth is the remarkable true story of personal transformation against the clock, and the astonishing feats we can accomplish when we face up to our deepest fears.
