2020: Moving forward, from behind
Alright, everything changed on us when we weren't expecting it. Other than being proactive with our health choices, all we are left with is continuing to move forward. If you have the motivation to continue to train regardless of the situation, I encourage you to not only train - train with a more defined purpose. Fill in the gaps in your athlete tool-box that you rarely have time effectively fill. Don't just work on power - improve your technique: handling skills, form, comfort, body awareness and control. Become a better athlete by improving your muscle pliability, coordination and strength on the primary human planes of movement. There is so much you can do while our events and training groups are on hold.
Above all, be adaptable, hang in there, don't panic, stay active and positive.
Races and Competitions:
Coach Jon and Anna-Lisa are hopeful that we may able to continue to promote the P2P Training Race Series in late July and August. We are also hopeful that we may be able to put on our first gravel race, The Antelope Stampede scheduled for Sept 19, 2020 in Kimball, Nebraska which will wind through 25, 50 and 100 miles of the fastest gravel and dirt roads available in Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming! Initial details of these events will be available here on this website as well as Facebook with links from Twitter and Instagram.
Antelope Stampede GPS Map Course Links:
Coach Jon looks forward to directing the Team USA Juniors at the 52nd edition of the Tour L'Abitibi Nations Cup Stage Race in Canada in 2021. Sadly, there won't be a 2020 edition but our hopes to be there next year are high.
Training and Talent ID Camps:
All training camps are on hold for 2020, but look for Junior Talent ID Road Camps and gravel based camps next year. Coach Jon is designing a 3-day gravel training camp using roads in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska with focus on nutrition, body balance for gravel riding, equipment maintenance, on-road repair, cue sheet & gps tricks, technique - date to be determined.
Coaching: Coach Jon's available athlete slots are full for the 2020 season. Stay tuned for the bios of the athletes Jon is currently working with!
