The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Tavian Bryant

I always look forward to this time of the year. Off season training is coming to an end, and the season is just a few weeks away. My first race of the season will be the Valley of the Sun Stage Race in Phoenix, Arizona and surrounding areas. The race will consist of three stages: time trial, road race, and a criterium. I’ve spent the last couple weeks analyzing data from last years race and setting new goals for this years race. This will be the third year in a row that I’ve competed in this race, and it gives me a good reference point to start my season. Thanks to my coach’s offseason training plan I will enter this season with high expectations. I am entering this season with a higher level of fitness as well as much improved technique and I’m excited about what this season will bring.
