Sometimes in life, you just need a bit more motivation to get where you're trying to go.

Let's say you wake up in the morning with an excruciating hangover for example. There's no chance you're going anywhere without the motivation of having stuck two stuffed-crust pizzas, four vanilla milkshakes and 'Titanic' on Blue Ray in your fridge the night before.

So, seeing as we're always trying to keep you kids motivated here at Mpora, we thought we'd compile some inspiring quotes for you to live by - and who better to get them from than a road cyclist who won the Tour de France seven times in a row from 1999 to 2005?


That's right Lance Armstrong and his famous firEPOwer should be enough to motivat- wait, what? Oh yeah. Shit. Forgot about all that.

Okay, seriously though. We walked past a book shop the other day and spotted Armstrong's 2000 autobiography 'It's Not About the Bike', which made us giggle profusely and blurt out loud "well, you've got that right."

That got us thinking; if the name of that old book was pretty much a joke in title-form, there must be some great inspirational quotes from Lance's past that panned out much the same. According to the quote section over at 'GoodReads', turns out we weren't wrong...
