Staying ready

Even though all events are canceled due to Covid-19. I continue to train 6 days a week.  As many of my fellow athletes know what makes the difference at any race is the training behind closed doors, out on the trails, or gyms that most people do not see. I have added the use of Zwift which is an online virtual racing game that uses real cycling parameters, such as power, cadence, and heart rate if you have it...

Coronavirus: What Will the Racing Season Look Like?

With the growing concern over Coronavirus and recent decisions by professional sports leagues suspend play or disallow fans to attend games, I can’t help but wonder what the ramifications will be in cycling.  Typically, I spend a lot of the year traveling out of state to attend races, usually 5-10 events a year.  It’s taken me all over the country and I have met amazing people and visited places I never thought I’d have an opportunity to see.  How...

2020 Training

2020 is off to a great start! My training has been exceptional and I am looking forward to the Redlands Bicycle Classic on April 22-26, 2020. The combination of high intensity interval training, long low intensity endurance rides, and lots of time spent in the gym has me feeling fitter than ever. As the winter ends and things start to warm up, or in my case get downright hot in Las Vegas, I can’t wait to spend more time...
