Galaxy Battles to Deliver the Biggest Major DotA 2 Tournament in Southeast Asia
- Don’t launch at the redline – You can end your race before it has even begun if you launch at the redline. In fact, if you watch the beginning of any road race, you are bound to notice a few riders that are doing it wrong. The majority of road racers will hold their engines near or at redline, and then the clutch gets dumped, which causes a squawking clutch, a wild wheelie, or both. The best thing to do is hold the engine revs at peak torque – rather than peak horsepower – then quickly let the clutch out and pin the throttle.
- Maintain your motorbike – You are only as good as the bike you are riding. This is why it is vital to keep your motorbike in prime condition. Make sure you conduct maintenance before and after every race. It is important to also only use premium quality spare parts whenever you are replacing anything. The likes of Solomotoparts offers premium quality aftermarket parts. However, there are other companies that cut corners in terms of quality and their products really aren’t up to standard, especially for racers. This is why you need to do your research and choose sellers with extreme care.
- Brake where you need to – A lot of racers make the mistake of braking where they think they should brake, rather than braking where they need to. This is one piece of advice that has been provided by Freddie Spender, who has his own High Performance Riding School.
- Learn how your suspension works – If you have ever seen a rider that has had to swap motorbikes and use something they are unfamiliar with, you will probably notice a distinct difference. This is especially the case if they have not had any prior testing. It is important to use practice sessions and testing to explore the full range of chassis and suspension adjustments before you even think about going fast. Getting to know your bike is of the utmost importance.
- Ride proud – Last but not least, arguably the most important point of them all – you need to ride proud and you need to ride confidently. Your attitude will make a massive difference. They often say the motorbike can sense if you’re not entirely happy. You need to be in harmony with one and other.

“Unlimited Will” celebrates an extraordinary athlete, Kyle Maynard, and his determination to surmount any challenge in his path.
“The defining, life-changing moment [for me] was making my first tackle in football, just taking my helmet and smashing it in another guy’s shins as hard as I could,” declares Kyle Maynard.
30-year-old Maynard describes himself as a climber, author, athlete and speaker with a “general life philosophy of specializing in not specializing.” He’s also the first quadruple amputee to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro without the aid of prosthetics.
Born in Washington, D.C., with a rare condition known as congenital amputation, Maynard made that critical football tackle in middle school then switched to wrestling in high school. ”I lost 35 times in a row in a year and a half,” he remembers. “I just kept failing and failing but then finally figured it out. And then by the time I was a senior, people were saying that I was unfairly advantaged.”
“Sometimes when we look at an athlete who has done something in a different way, done something big, done something unique, and we only see the successes.” Maynard adds. “We don’t see the countless hours of failure that go into it. That failure set us up for the success because we know what we needed to change.”
Maynard applies this same try-until-you-achieve attitude, alongside a signature “No excuses” maxim, as an internationally competitive jiu-jitsu fighter, world record-setting weightlifter and mountaineer, who beyond tackling the pure physical challenges of summiting Africa’s tallest peak had to devise his own equipment. Though he now uses an elite custom climbing system, Maynard initially wrapped towels around the end of his arms, securing them with tape.
“If you’re doing something first, you don’t have that path laid out for you so you just have to go and figure it out,” Maynard explains. “You learn how to use your mind. You learn: How do I not fall apart when I have something bad happen to me? How do I get through and overcome bigger challenges? How do I adapt? The lessons that you learn in your sport can transcend into every area of your life, in your relationships and in just any dream that you have.”

This year’s tournament is open to teams of five to seven players aged 16 to 25, and for
the first time two over-aged players are allowed in the squad. Competing teams will need to have their Philippine passports on stand-by when registering. The teams will set out with the hope of making it to the World Final in 2017, at the Instituto Projeto NeymarJr in Praia Grande, Brazil.
