The 2012 Race Season is almost here!
To help kick things off, Silver Sage Sports Performance, Reno Wheelmen's title sponsor since 2007, is hosting an open house on Wednesday, March 21 from 6-8 p.m. The club will provide pizzas, and you're welcome to BYOB.
There will be a Lactate Threshold Test demonstration. SSSP uses this test's results to determine individual athletes' training heart rate and power zones.
Julie Young, owner of O2 Fitness and an SSSP partner, will provide the 411 on bike fitting, using the Specialized bike fit protocol and Dartfish video analysis, to blend the bike to individual's unique biomehcanics and flexibility. Proper bike fit is an essential ingredient in cycling performance, balancing comfort with power output and aerodynamics, and effectively avoiding overuse injuries.
Silver Sage presents a unique model in the Reno region - offering an integrated comprehensive menu of professional services - including testing, bike fitting and coaching/training - to help each individual athlete reach their peak performance.
Finally, we'll end the evening with a Q&A session with Julie - race tactics, general cycling questions, behind the scenes at European stage racing. Julie has had an amazing career (winner of the Tour de L'Aude, the Tour d'Aquitaine, and many other races). Bring your curiosity and questions.
Silver Sage Sports Performance and O2fitness is pleased to act as a resource to help the Wheelmen reach their performance potential.
