Invent better excuses!
Drop all the guys who are faster than you; BEFORE the finish line.
Save all your energy; and attack ONCE, before the sprint starts.
Race in a lower category.
Hire someone strong enough to drop everyone, but not strong enough to drop you.
Push harder on the left pedal, when it reaches the bottom of the stroke, repeat with the right pedal.....repeat......repeat.....repeat.
Steal your competitors drugs (no; not to use them!).
Consider taking up golf, or table tennis.
Learn a daily mantra, such as, "my goal is to win the bike race; NOT, to be the most aggressive rider".....repeat....repeat....repeat.
