Roadies, cyclocrossers, and triathletes…oh my! Quite a mix of specialties at the time trial course this month.
Time-trialing improves performance across the spectrum of disciplines, so get your TT on no matter your preferred racing style.
Tonight’s mini-clinic covered the importance of properly stabilized feet and the role insoles play in making us fast on the bike. And they keep us healthy!
Pro tip: Not every insole is right for every person. Check out my article on Ironman.com about cycling and running insoles:
“Consider the Insole Before Hitting the Road”

You take your pull and you take your turn behind the pullers, that’s how racing works. Are you remembering your role as you race? Yep, when you’re sitting in, you still have work to do, especially if you’re working as part of a team. Your job is to answer a few questions:
Who is around you?
Can you work with them?
Who is riding strong?
Who is showing signs of fatigue?
What is your plan with your teammates?
Where are your teammates and how are they holding up?
Who is setting up a move?
Are you going to make a move and how will you accomplish it?
This is only the beginning of what you should be thinking about and should all be automatic. There are a few more nearby races including the State Crit Championship races followed by the Gateway Cup in St. Louis over Labor Day Weekend. Bring all of your skills together for these final few weeks and finish the season strong.
