Individuals can also learn from this and make it work to their advantage instead of going with every move up the road.

Racing a Bicycle is What We Want To Do
We can have the highest VO2 Max or the highest Threshold Power, but can that alone win races? That may be possible. Even with all of the power AND the inclusion of skills and tactical knowledge, Lady Luck may just play into someone else's hands. But, let's be prepared anyway!
I have designed these clinics with you in mind, to help you increase your skill learning to make you more comfortable and, hence, to go faster and to also use your brain to help affect the outcome of any particular race.
These are not lectures. They are very 'hands-on' clinics expertly designed by me to bring you to a higher level. You will not only address your physical skills and work on improving them but also the mental side that can take the game into another level entirely.
