No kidding. Talk about conquering demons. That takes quite a bit of personal fortitude to face something like that down, and if you ask me, it's one of the most amazing things - the personal effort and the results it yields - irrespective of the sport itself. You really have to raise yourself to a certain level of focus - or state of being - or whatever you want to call it - to overcome something like that. MTB provides pretty cool circumstances for it though.
