To ride like a ninja you must have great skill; to race like a ninja you must have great insight. No, this does not mean that you have to read the Tao of Pooh, it just means that you must be aware of the course ahead of you. The best way to do this is with a purposeful pre-ride-- learn where the best line is, practice the technical sections, know how much recovery you will have between climbs, and scope out the best passing sections.
