What goes through your guys' heads before a big race?

Ah, **** everything.

How do you get in the zone?

I sit alone and I think, ah, God dammit. And I warm up.

How do you overcome the jitters if it's a super important race?

I remind myself that we're all just headed toward the heat death of the universe so nothing matters.

Basically, I think you're just gonna have to find what works for you. What makes you nervous? Thinking you'll lose? You're gonna lose a lot of races. Being afraid of being in a position to win? Figure it out, and then give yourself reasons to believe that what you think and feel is stupid. That's what works for me!
