10K Time Trial Results: June 9th

10K Time Trial

Tonight’s Time Trial Mini-Clinic covered breathing techniques for racing. With a headwind on the return trip tonight, this technique is especially handy. For more detail, see my article on Pez Cycling News, “Breathplay: Turn Your Breathing Upside Down.”

Riders were also advised on keeping race numbers visible to officials when crossing the finish line. When you wave or sit up, the officials can’t see your number. Simply continue racing across the line so we get your race number and time recorded properly.

Thank you to Mark Thomas for being our holder and to Roger Harrison for supplying the bib numbers.

10K Time Trial: Results for September 10th

We lucked out and escaped the thunderstorm for the final Time Trial of 2015. After results were announced, racers received a mini-clinic on the start sprint, cadence, and bike fitting. There was also a random drawing for prizes.

Many thanks to the racers throughout the season for your hard work, support, and involvement. This season has been especially focused on sharing knowledge and learning from each other.

Thank You to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder all season, to Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for supplying bib numbers and spray chalk, and to Jeff Englert for providing the safety signs.

Vive Le Tour and the 10K TT

Every Victory Counts - Davis Phinney Foundation

It’s Tour de France time at the July 10th 10K TT. Chalked roads, raffles, and prizes!

In honor of Le Tour and all that is cycling, we celebrate the birthday of the second American to win a TdF stage, Davis Phinney. It’s also my birthday and I’m the second American to…um…I’ll have to do some research.

At any rate, it means I get to ask for the one present I want most: The gift to “Live Well Now.”

How do you give a gift like that? By supporting the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease.

Davis Phinney was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2000 at the young age of 40. As athletes we value motion, to go out there and do whatever we want to do. We value the effect motion has on our psyche. With Parkinson’s Disease, motion becomes difficult. Motion becomes involuntary. Motion becomes rigid. The psyche takes a hard hit and the fight becomes more mental in order to deal with the physical. As with many diseases, we don’t know how long we’ll wait to find a cure. Davis has taken the bull by the horns and is teaching people with PD to live well right now. No waiting, no jacking around. Live Well Now.

Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's

Please click to donate.

Maintaining control of movement is a primary focus for those living with Parkinson’s. Teaching strategies for motion control as symptoms progress is one of the many things the Foundation does to help people with this disease to live well now through their Victory Summit symposia and other excellent resources.

Let’s celebrate our abilities, whatever they may be, with a gift to the Davis Phinney Foundation.

Of course I want to live to see a cure for my disease – and make that time limit, too. But until that glad day arrives, I want to live well, not merely exist.”
          ~Davis Phinney, The Happiness of Pursuit

If you’re game, here’s what Davis taught me, a few photos, and why I’m so passionate about supporting the work of the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s:
