Intro Week Update

Last week we offered free classes at the Speed Shop to allow riders to experience a MultiRider CompuTrainer workout. It was a great week with many new enthusiastic faces coming out for a visit. Here's one of my favorite newbies...
Judy and Ray
Strongman Ray, a shop regular convinced his wife Judy to come over to try a CT class. Judy is fairly new to triathlon and become quite fit this year. Judy showed up to a full class including a few hard core triathletes (Kevin K., Joe L., Mike O. Tamara and Vicki). Showing up with this crowd could be quite intimidating. The beauty of the MultiRider CT is being able to share your training (pain:)on your own bike. No one got dropped. No one got lost. Everyone had fun!
Look at that smile!
Judy had so much fun she showed up for another class on Tuesday.
I can't wait to see what she's going to wear next time!

KA Speed Shop Adventures

Vicki Bate of Team Aquafor does a media event with Chris Carmichael at the Reebok Sports Club in New York City
Vicki has been a member of Team Aquaphor since 2008, competing in over a dozen events as a member of the Team, ranging from half marathons to century rides and Ironman competitions.

Another Team Aquafor athlete Lucas McCullom recently completed the Ford Ironman World Championships in Kona for the 2nd year in a row. Lucas missed his special needs bag near the end of the 112mi. bike segment. This caught up with him at mile 9 into the marathon and he still managed a very strong finish. Very impressive!

On the home front Kevin Kendro made it to the top of the podium at the Brierman Triathlon competing the Half Iron division. Next up for Kevin is Ironman 70.3 Florida in just a few weeks.

Michele Trdina steam rolled her competition AGAIN to win at the Brierman Triathlon in the Sprint competition. Congrats on a very impressive season!

In the Cyclocross scene, Jim Johnson hits the podium for the 2nd year in a row at "Kelley Acres" Cross. Here is he getting a peck on the cheek from GamJams Podium Candy winner Lance Lacy.


This week at the Speed Shop we are having some free introductory classes for anyone that would like to try out the MultiRider CompuTrainer. Our schedule is available at The fall schedule will be finalized and on the web this weekend.
