The Florida Polytechnic Time Trial Series Starts 2/9/20!

The start of the 2020 Florida Polytechnic Time Trial Series is next weekend on February 9th, 2020! I’m excited to announce that this year, the event will be listed as an official “race series” under USA Cycling. This will be a once per month (February-November) time trial race series including a coach led warm up session with course preview, 8 mile or 15 kilometer time trial, prizes and awards, complimentary Hammer Nutrition for fueling, and a post TT group ride on some of the best cycling roads in Florida🌞This is an excellent opportunity to test yourself against the clock each month, improve your time trial ability, improve your FTP, and establish goals for the 2020 season! The course offers an ideal power testing location with very little traffic. This series is great for riders of all levels, whether it’s your first time competing in a time trial or if you are fine tuning for a national championship!

Summer North Carolina Climbing Camp was a blast!

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!

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.
