This past week was one of the hardest weeks of training that I have ever asked the riders to go through before. I want to say that I am quite proud of the work put in by all the riders. We had two days of VO2 max efforts, a points race, the shoot out, then a spin class, and to finish it off a mountain bike ride on Sunday. Well done team!! Don’t think it’s going to get much easier though, as the great Greg Lemond once said, “It never gets easier, you just go faster.” I am going to have to get faster to keep up with this team.
Also I want to make a few shout outs to some riders:
Logan and Nathan made it to the sprint hill on the Big Boy ride with Alex and myself for the first time ever. The shoot out is never harder than at this time of the year, so for us to make it was a big deal. Many a rider came to tell me how impressed with the youth they were. Well done!
D-Son for the first time ever, and with no help, made it all the way around on the Old Man ride. Not bad for a first year rider.
Lizzy and Colin for the first time ever went all the way around and on the way back we never went below 23 miles an hour. And that’s for over 15 miles.
Donovan and Richard— Donovan made it to the bridge with the big boys. YEAH MAN. And Richard put together a fantastic day of coaching getting Donovan, all the way around, and pulling us home. He also took Lizzy for a few minutes of fun.
Well done TEAM!
Minus the cheesy intro this is a good video
