~~~ Fight to the Finish ~~~

I witnessed the Redbull bike stunt challenge.. I just have one word for the cyclists.. R.E.S.P.E.C.T
They were all Heroes.. some of them couldn't make it .. some of them shone through.. 
They were really stars in their own right.. I never imagined that it would be so magical..

One particular cyclist somersaulted in the air.. turned 45 degrees and lost his balance ..
and ended falling on the ground straight on...
There were injuries on his neck.. The momentum was so high that the tires of his bike changed shape ..
He was flat on the ground... and the whole crowd cheered for him.. They all bucked him up..
The paramedics were there taking good care of him.. They tried carrying him back after 50 mts or so he got up and started  ( Okay let's say he tried to walk) walking towards the exit.. That was it.. He was injured and the blood was all around and he kept walking till he reached the EXIT sign.. 
It was his battleground and may be the thought of other people carrying him back felt like an insult to him!!!
That was the moment... That was the spirit (Every time I think about it I get goosebumps..).. You fight and you fight..Winning/Losing is not the end... Reaching the finishing line on your own is what it is about...!!! You fight with your full heart.. There is nothing more/ less that you can do... 
You should wear your heart on your sleeve and Fight in your battleground...Fight till the last drop of blood is there... Fight till the last breath..

To me he was the Star.. The Man.. R.E.S.P.E.C.T .........!

Here is to the good fight, the good spirit and The Man..
