“I think luck has something to do with it-with any racing-and what we do is obviously a dangerous sport, but it’s in a controlled atmosphere. I try to stay as healthy as possible off the bike by exercising and working out, so if I do crash and get hurt, I can recoup quicker and recover a little faster because my body is so healthy.”

Short’s no-nonsense, nose-to-the-grindstone approach has catapulted him to the top of his sport. But he’s quick not to count his podium visits before they materialize.

“I think in racing you’re only as good as your last race. I don’t necessarily want to think that I have ‘made it’ or ‘I’ve arrived,’ I guess. I think that’s the drive and competitiveness of any athlete. I try to keep that mentality, always striving to get better and better because I still haven’t reached the top and that’s my goal. I think one day when I get done racing I will look back and reflect on what I have accomplished, but until then, I’m just trying to keep my head down and achieve what I can achieve.”
