Never Give Up

There’s something wonderful about watching someone with the determination to finish when things just flat-out suck—when it’s useless, it’s not worth the effort, and it’s not going to result in a good finish anyway, but damn if they’re not going to finish it anyway.

That was MotoGP rider Johann Zarco over the weekend. Zarco was in seventh place overall when he felt his bike having trouble in turn 11 on the final lap of the race, and soon puttered out of fuel close to the finish line. So, he did what every normal human being would do and pushed a 400-pound bike past the checkered flag:
