Don’t we all have a dream that seems too daring, too unpredictable in outcome to really go for it? What if it didn’t matter how unachievable your goal might seem? What if you went for it anyway?

Monika talks about how she made her dream come true cycling as the first female in history one of the toughest cycling races in the world, the 3300km Vuelta a España, setting a world record. It is about daring to go for a challenge that was seemingly impossible. The lessons learned how self-confidence, resilience and team work are absolutely necessary to break mental and physical barriers to fulfill goals and dreams.
