Shop Updates and Spin Larry

We have an exciting update to the "Top Dog" Winter TT Competition. Raw Revolution has come on board as a sponsor. We had some samples of their product at the Speed Shop from "Kelley Acres" Cross Race. They were thrilled to step up to become involved in another "Kelley Acres" event.
The TT standings are heating up. Joos is still holding onto the top spot in the Men's Competition and w/kg. Christine M. is now at the top of the Women's Competition and w/kg. In the Master's Categories Kevin C. and Bernie Sellers are "Top Dog" in the 40+ and 50+ respectively. Christine M. and Vicki B. round out the Master's Women 40+ and 50+. Chuck K., Kevin C., Rachel B., Vicki B. and Donna P., have shaved significant amounts of time off previous rides.

Last weekend I attended the USA Cycling Level 2 Coaching Clinic in Baltimore, MD. This three day event was much more interesting than expected. The quality of the instructors as well as the attendees made for exceptional information sharing and learning experience. Topics covered over the weekend ranged from Nutrition/Hydration, Periodization/Training Plan Design, and Tactics covered by Sam Callan and Al Gandolfi. Dr. Andy Doyle provided a tremendous amount of information on sports physiology as it applies towards cyclists and triathletes.

Speed Shop regular, Steve Wahl got some PRESS at GamJams. Way to go and a big thanks for the shout out !

I kept hearing alot of chatter on Weds. mornings about Spin Larry from the local YMCA spin classes. Larry contacted me about attending his first class at the Speed Shop. Last week Larry not only came to class but had his game face on during the Shop TT!
Spin Larry and the Weds. morning crew
Larry and Christine were on each other's wheels for most of the TT. Larry took her at the line on the uphill finishing stretch.
Stay tuned.....
