Wow! What a week of training up in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia on the North Carolina climbing camp. Riders saw close to 30,000 feet of climbing in five days including very intense climbs, beautiful countryside, new power record, great meals, gravel excursions, waterfalls, and a ton of smiles, laughs and good times. Super proud of this bunch for all of their hard efforts during the camp. Big shout out to Hammer Nutrition and Tom Elbel for helping with SAG Support!
IMPORTANT information and START LOCATION CHANGE FOR THIS SATURDAY’S Florida Polytechnic Time Trial. This will be part of a special edition time trial route of 8.5 miles. The location of this time trial is one of my favorite roads in all of Florida known for its old country bike trail style road feel accompanied by the fresh smell of orange groves and the real Florida vibe.🌎🍊🌞
I am choosing this Saturday for this location due to higher traffic expected to be on University BLVD due to an event at Florida Polytechnic University.
We will be starting the time trial on Old Lake Alfred Road just south (0.25 miles) of the junction of Old Lake Alfred Road and 557A. Not only is Old Lake Alfred road beautiful, but there is almost no traffic here. 👍
New Start Address (0.25 miles south of here):
131 Old Lake Alfred Rd, Lake Alfred, FL 33850
Parallel on Old Lake Alfred road ~0.25 miles south of the junction of Old Lake Alfred Road and 557A
There will be no restrooms located at the TT start. The closest restrooms are:
1. Loves Travel Stop:
1800 FL-559, Polk City, FL 33868
2. I-4 rest area
I-4 Rest Area, Polk City, FL 33868
Link to special edition 8.4 mile TT route:
This route will have rolling hills and a few straightaways and bends making this a challenging and exciting course!

Want to get in the best possible climbing shape and ride at your very best in this years Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Bike Ride? I have engineered a powerful two month training program starting July 28th to put you in peak form for this event. Two months has been a proven effective time to prepare and prime for an event, especially if you already have a good base in your training. This training plan includes weekly feedback and is a special discounted price of $189 total.
If you really want to get the absolute best hands on climbing work and an amazing adventure too, then consider coming to the Summer 2019 North Georgia-North Carolina Climbing-Waterfall Camp on August 21st. We will be doing the actual Six Gap climbs and also going to the highest point in Georgia on Brasstown Bald for a perfect opportunity to get as much climbing work you could ask for. Combined with training on the Six Gap climbs at this camp, we will also take stops at waterfalls which will not disappoint. We currently only have 1-2 more spots at the cabin for this camp so direct message me to get the last spots!
