Jeremy Powers (Aspire), athlete/producer Aaron Chase and WD-40 Bike put together this video on Powers’ path to the 2017 Cyclocross National Championships, as well as his preparation during Nationals in his attempt to win a fifth title.

The six-minute video is worth watching even for the great GoPro footage out on the course during pre-rides, and it conveys a great sense of the celebrity status Powers enjoys while at an event like Nationals.

His race on Sunday may not have gone exactly as to plan, but Powers shows perspective and grace despite the disappointment, providing a free clinic for the rest of us of how to handle ourselves regardless of the result.

We caught up with Powers just before Nationals and he was excited, prepared and yet philosophical as to his title defense, and kept a consistent perspective throughout the week, even after defeat.

Enjoy the video below.
