When you're a young cyclist, you want to improve, and fast. While we don;t have any shortcuts to your first race win, free bike or pro contract, what we do have is a collective couple of decades of experience as young cyclists (say, younger than 20). We thought that we should pass some of our best advice on. Hit SHARE and pass this video on too.
