#18 - Get Your Bikes Ready, Time Trials, STAC Virtual Wind Tunnel & Time to get INSCYD
In this episode, the coaches dive into getting your bikes tuned and ready for the outdoor riding season. The Ontario Cycling Association has announced a preliminary calendar of events including a Time Trial Series set to start on May 15 - Yes, that’s right around the corner. Paolina and Roger talk about their favourite equipment, shops, their love of time trialling and more. As you look towards the upcoming season, you should nail down your bike position. There is a lot of “free speed” to tap into by optimizing your aerodynamic position. We offer the STAC Virtual Wind Tunnel where we can provide you with various positions to consider, along with factoring in various equipment (helmet, wheels, etc) and how those can bring you time savings. The biggest factor when it comes to improving your performance is you, and the hard work you will put in. To help with that, we’ve added INSCYD to the services we provide. Having that test at our fingertips provides us with valuable data to help make our athletes perform at their best. The coaches discuss the test, and the fact that they will be executing the testing protocol as well. Tip of the Week: Before going to sleep, have a scoop or two of your favourite protein powder. Why? Recovery and Muscle Growth. We of course recommend F2C Nutrition Pharma-Pure or Vegan-Pure. We can save you 15%. Just use code PRENDURANCE15
