Back on Track

This week I started back to training full time on the Velodrume after a much needed break. It has been a very productive week thanks to my coach who was able to fly in from the east coast to run a mini camp. So thankful for the support of my coaching team. I am starting to gear up for the Track World Championship Selection Event that will be held 7-9 Dec on the Carson Velodrume.

I Enjoy This Season as Well

I enjoy this time of the year. I won’t call it an off-season because the work never stops, but my next race is months away. There’s nothing like being in the midst of race season, but I like this season as well because I can work in a bunch of low intensity endurance rides. Once the season ended I was able to put together a string of training rides that resulted in my longest single day ride, the...

Back to what I do

Today I did a 20k Individual Time Trial at Piru. It has been about a month back to training since the health issues that forced me to miss nationals and take two months off. This is my second time trial since the time off. The first one was more of a feeler to see how my body and mind would respond to putting and sustained but not full on race effort. I had no race training for this race....

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...

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.

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...

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....

Tavian Bryant – Redlands Bicycle Classic 2019

I had a lot of fun racing in the Redlands Bicycle Classic. It's an event I look forward to every year. I've competed in this event for three years in a row. This event forces me to bring my best every year because the competition is always fierce. A few of the courses changed this year, and day 1 was a very challenging course with a steep hill climb to the finish. The day 2 course was familiar...
