Happy New Year! A new Coach's Blog is up (hit the link above) and the past couple of weeks has been a world-wind of excitement and new projects for Peak to Peak Training Systems. I'll post a blog soon but lets just say I have filled 2023 with cycling opportunities for our customers and for myself.
The CSP Race Series continues to be prepare for 12 fantastic opportunities for fun and training in June, July and August. I've agreed to direct a Junior Talent ID Camp at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff June 26-July 1. I took on the role as Director Sportiv for CS Velo Cycling Team presented by Eliel and Ventum competing in nearly all professional road and stage races in the United States. I continue to be the Director Sportiv for Team USA at the UCI Nations Cup Tour l'Abitibi in July. And our own Antelope Stampede gravel race is on tap for mid-September.
Peak to Peak Training Series Zwift Club January Training Sessions: The January series will focus on a variety of efforts and systems. Using a variety of course-worlds on Zwift, all training sessions will enjoy nice warmup with brief intervals to open things up a bit. Tuesday sessions will see tempo efforts broken up with short "over-threshold" work stimulating power & recoverability between efforts. We will continue to play with pedal speed and form to keep it interesting and build function control. You will be stimulated to become more aerobically efficient while also being to handle & recover from harder bouts of intensity. I know most "Zwifters" come for the racing, but this training series will be in a controlled environment that is based on percentages of your current functional training power (FTP) - so make sure that is updated before you begin. If you wish to repeat the standardized Zwift FTP test on your own, I would not oppose it. If, however, you have done a few harder Zwift group rides, your FTP might have already updated itself. All riders will be kept together with the ride leader unless you stop pedaling and the efforts you make will be at your level of fitness, not anyone else's. There may be an occasion when you are up for a workout and just want to spin along with the group (as a matter of fact, you will catch me doing that as I am now leading 2 classes a day).
Week #1: Jan 3 and 5 with 6:00 am and 6:30 pm options; Jan 8 at 4:00 pm
Week #2: Jan 10 and 12 with 6:00 am and 6:30 pm options; Jan 15 at 4:00 pm
Week #3: Jan 17 and 19 with 6:00 am and 6:30 pm options; Jan 22 at 4:00 pm
Week #4: Jan 24 and 26 with 6:00 am and 6:30 pm options; Jan 29 at 4:00 pm
If you are interested in joining our Zwift club and doing our workout series, the following requirements need to be met: 1.) you need to have a paid Zwift membership; 2.) you need to follow me (Jon Heidemann/P2P/VR7/Stages); 3.) you have to notify me that you would like to join the club either by text/phone, FB Messenger or email with your Zwift name (so that I can find you). Once I have your request, I will send you an invite. After all that - you will log on to Zwift within 30 minutes or less of the training session time and it should be listed on one of the tiles in the top row of your ride menu. Click that and go!
The P2P Training Race Series at CSP's Table Mtn Track was a tremendous success again this year with record participation numbers. The feedback we received was incredible, mostly highlighting the fantastic social atmosphere coupled with friendly low sure competition. The 2022 series completed with our 12th series race on Aug 24, 2022. We are incredibly thankful for all the racers who participated & brought with them such great positive vibes!

Grass-roots level youth day camps & open discipline youth races are being created and targeted at smaller rural towns and communities that share limited resources, industry support and are heavily influenced by a singular industry such as agriculture, mining or energy production. All kids love bikes and I am working to keep them engaged with the bike into and throughout adulthood.
Team Direction: Coach Jon looks forward to directing the Junior Team USA at the 52nd edition of the Tour L'Abitibi Nations Cup Stage Race in Canada in July!!!
