Tavian Bryant – Living the Dream

It has been an amazing month. 7 races over a 10 day period in 2 different states. I made my first trip to Wisconsin to race in the Tour of America’s Dairyland. The Tour of America’s Dairyland featured four straight days of racing four criterium courses in four different cities around southeastern Wisconsin. A criterium is a circuit race on a closed course in which we complete several laps over a 30 to 35 minute time period. I really [...]


The Art of Preparation

What is up folks, how is everyone doing? It always amazes me how much goes into preparation for a task… be it a training session, an international triathlon trip or a surf-camping trip with a baby! If you prepare early, the chances of being late or messing something up are smaller -although they still happen! Name it and chances are I already thought ahead and had it all prepared when the time came. I am known to plan things ahead of time [...]


PossAbilities Represented at Nexus Endurance Training Camp

In April, I had an opportunity to spend a week in Tucson, Arizona, with fellow handcyclists who are being coached by the coaching staff at NEXUS Endurance.  It was a week of tough training and evalaution with some great athletes in weather that could not have been more perfect.  Most days were spent riding in the morning and afternoon followed by an educational session after a group dinner.  It is so interesting how much I continue to learn about [...]

17th Annual PossAbilities Adult and Kids of all Abilities Triathlon

                I look forward to participating in this beautiful event every year April 28th 2019 was the 17th Annual PossAbilities Triathlon. This was my third year racing in and either winning first or second place in team relay. No matter how hard I am training for my race season whether I am training for PossAbilities Paracycle Race Series at Redlands Bicycle Classic stage race or USA Paracycling Nationals. I always welcome the challenge of working the triathlon into my training [...]


Tavian Bryant – The Journey to 40 and Beyond

This whole journey started about 5 years ago. I had been in a wheelchair for 18 years at this point. I was out of shape and needed to do something about it. I also wanted to get out there and feel myself in the wind as I did before, riding bikes and motorcycles in my youth. I bought a handcycle shortly after my injury, and I rode it from time to time. However, it mostly [...]


Like Equipment An Athletes Body Needs Maintenance

No matter the athlete or how healthy you live your life you will need medical maintenance on your body in some type of way. You will also need more than a doctor, you need a support team behind you to get you through it. This team has many roles from moral support, nutritional assistance, travel assistance, equipment maintenance and the list goes on and on. One of the biggest things us athletes try to avoid is the need [...]

2019 Annual PossAbilities Triathlon – Success!

Hey guys, For this year’s PossAbilities triathlon I had the same goal as previous years –to make sure I beat Zimri! We developed this healthy rivalry, even though we’re not in the same class. Tell you what, he kept me on my toes this year. For one, I wasn’t training full time like before, but still had been going strong. The main fact is that Zim’s new coach is a great athlete that I personally know and like, Jamie Brown. I [...]

Tavian Bryant – Creative Training

I’m definitely keeping the training rides interesting this season. From Long Beach to Fresno to Los Angeles and Atascadero. Completing marathons as training keeps it interesting and fun. I’ve completed 36 marathons so far, and I’m on my way to completing 1000 marathon miles. I remember when marathons were the primary focus. Once I discovered the world of competitive paracycling that all changed. I am now focused on achieving success competing in the strongest paracycling fields in the country. [...]
