I’m not the one to encourage socially destructive values. Aggression could be considered as such. In a race, the line between assertiveness and aggression is often a fine one.
Overtaking a competitor requires driving offensively and without attacking; moving up a position simply doesn’t happen. Inversely, preventing a competitor from overtaking requires a more defensive driving – or riding style. There are, nevertheless, rules as to how racers can defend their position. Typically, the number of times a racer can deviate from their racing line is (very) limited.
It’s business. It isn’t personal. A phrase so-called (business) sharks don’t shy away from. Does that mean that entrepreneurs need to be aggressive, ruthless without scruples? No.
