He started coaching with the United States Cycling Federation (now USA Cycling) in 1990, was the U.S. Men's Road Cycling team coach for the 1992 Olympic Games and the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team Head Coach for the 1996 Olympic Games.   In the winter of 1986, Chris suffered a broken femur in a cross-country skiing accident. He raced a shortened season in 1987, but a series of knee surgeries kept him from returning to full strength. In 1988-89, Chris raced domestically in the U.S. for the Schwinn-Wheaties Professional Cycling Team before retiring at the end of the 1989 season.   Chris was the U.S. Men's Road Cycling team coach for the 1992 Olympic Games. He was named the U.S. National Coaching Director and led “Project ‘96”, a multi-disciplinary effort to put the most technologically and physiologically prepared team on the start line at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. Project '96 led to major advances in aerodynamics – including the GT Superbike – as well as altitude training, heat acclimatization, and hyperoxic training. Many of the sports science advances made during Project '96 are still in use at the elite and amateur levels of endurance sports. Chris was the Head Coach of the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team in 1996. In 1997, he joined the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the international governing body for cycling headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, as Olympic Solidarity Coaching Instructor. He is well known for being the personal coach to cyclist Lance Armstrong - as well as George Hincapie, ice-hockey player Saku Koivu and swimmer Ed Moses. Athletes under his tutelage have reportedly won a combined total of 33 medals at the Olympics, World Championships, and Pan American Games.   Chris Carmichael is the founder and CEO of Carmichael Training Systems, Inc.

A study into bike theft in the UK has revealed that a staggering 1,100 bikes are stolen every day, and yet, theft is rarely a barrier discussed by policymakers looking to increase cycling participation.   Each year, 80,000 stolen bikes go unclaimed for, presumably with owners either shelling out for a new model, or giving up on their cycling altogether, an unfortunate fate given that a fifth of owners listed their bicycle and kit as their ‘most important possession'.   Whilst the survey, commissioned by Direct Line, showed that 16% of its participants spent a “whopping £500 on their bike and accessories”, a 2021 study across Cycling Weekly's publisher's readers put the average spend figure at £2,685 (Future Publishing BikeTrack Survey, 2021).   For enthusiasts - the people for whom cycling is already a regular pastime, and who are therefore less likely to be put off by road traffic - the loss of a bike is likely an even more substantial financial outlay, arguably making bike theft a key detractor.   Statistics from the UK and US show that whilst 19% and 20% of victims report the loss of a bicycle to the police, only 5% of those stolen are returned each year. Instead, victims, and indeed cycling security brands are putting in the effort to seek solutions.   One owner lucky (or, resourceful) enough to have his stolen bikes returned in November last year was David Wilkins, who used an AirTag GPS tracker to help police retrieve three stolen bikes, the highest in value a £10,000 Specialized.   Relaying the story to Cycling Weekly, Wilkins told us: “[The police] were very helpful, but I got the impression they couldn't do too much as they said the location wasn't specific enough,” he “took the matter into [his] own hands” and even having located the bikes was told by police that the “AirTag could still be inaccurate," only gaining traction when he and an officer “pressed our ears up against the window of the property” and “heard beep, beep, beep.” Whilst the police no doubt have a lot on their hands, it shouldn't be down to victims to play Cluedo on tens of thousands of pounds worth of stolen belongings.   Bike locks have also become more sophisticated, with the likes of Hiplok seeking to produce an angle grinder-resistant solution last year.     What's New in the 303:   Riding, Being Safe and Having Fun in the Cold–Things to Think About This article will hopefully point out some not so obvious challenges, ideas and solutions to help you enjoy winter riding outdoors more.   Riding outside in the Colorado winter comes with increased risks, but often with un-anticipated rewards. I, like so many, have come to enjoy indoor riding much more thanks to my smart trainer (Saris H3) and my motivating software, Zwift. But it doesn't replace the crisp Colorado air and snowy vistas and a sense of not only being outside and refreshed, but sort of conquering the elements too.   Yes, as we know, there can be single layer, short sleeved days in the middle of Winter here along the front range, but rarely is it good to leave the house without at least a vest, gloves, arm warmers and “legs”. For me, come mid-November the toe covers are on and stay on until  March.   Shadows: The sun angle is lower and causes much deeper and darker shadows. So much so if you look at these two pictures you will barely see a rock (about the size of the palm of my hand) in the shadow about 8 feet ahead compared to when I moved the rock into the sun a few inches to the left. These pictures were taken at 1:30pm. Hazards like rocks, potholes and especially ice are well hid by shadows, even narrow ones from a fence post. Also the colder surface temperature in a shadow can house clear “black” ice—super dangerous to cyclists.   Moved the rock into the sun Visibility: With the sun angle lower, sun glare happens much earlier in the day and is more intense and lasts longer. Bright colors or lights won't be as effective. Wearing a lightweight vest or jacket and leaving it unzipped makes it flap and draws attention (as long as it's not too annoying to yourself).   Roads vs. Bike paths. While bike paths might offer a safer feeling with no cars, they can often be much sloppier longer after a snow storm. That's because most paths follow the grade of the land so they slope in one direction. Thus snow or water on the sides tend to drain into the path rather than away from it like on a road. Roads are generally “crowned” in the middle and slope towards drainage and dry out quicker and sit higher than the surrounding land.   Route Planning: Avoid riding past 4pm for reasons noted above with sun glare and quick temperature changes. If riding late, avoid riding into the sun so plan your routes accordingly. Also, riding in canyons can be very unpredictable with even deeper shadows. They hold snow and ice longer and coatings of mag chloride used to melt snow can leave roads looking almost wet and further disguise ice. Cold air pockets in canyons can drop temperatures very quickly. Rides with steep climbs that make us sweat might make us extra chilly going down, so bringing a large, thin, easy-to-put-on jacket for descents is often worthwhile. Routes with short climbs, rolling hills and some more technical turns offer variety which can be good for “moving around” on the bike with standing and shifting hands that will help keep you warmer.   Body fatigue: On a road or triathlon bike in particular, you will feel the road more in the cold. The bike feels stiffer in the cold, your body is typically stiffer so eventually you will feel more fatigue from the jarring and vibration than when it's warm. Lowering your tire pressure 5lbs or so can make a big difference in comfort.   Clothing: In general we all know about the importance of layers and the wonderful fabrics that allow moisture wicking and wind blocking. Probably the biggest bangs for the buck are a good base layer for your torso, toe covers, arm and leg warmers, neck gators, and a skull cap. All of these can be fairly affordable and when added to jackets, vests, jerseys etc, can make a huge difference in comfort. They carry easily, and can be easy to take off and on in changing temperatures. Water and windproof fabrics are great, but can sometimes cause sweating which will eventually make you cold. If it's sunny out, maybe just opt for basic gloves and outerwear.   Fit is king, just like a bike. The better the fit, the more comfortable, the better blood circulation and the the better the experience.  Thicker socks or gloves may cause worse circulation and make you colder. Keep extremities dextrous and warm; numb feet and hands are not good! Also note Gloves too big can get caught on gear and brake levers or catch your hoods when shifting your hands and can cause a crash.   Latex gloves can be a life saver. Combined with another glove, they can add a lot of warmth and are great for unexpected moisture and are super easy to stash in your bike bag–and very cheap.   Toe covers provide really good protection. Neoprene ones are the least expensive but can cause sweating more quickly so for a few extra dollars consider a breathable but water/wind proof fabric.   Full foot covers are great when it's really cold and going to stay cold. They may make your feet too warm though if the temperatures climb. It might be best to start with toe covers that you can use in a much bigger variety of temperatures and if they aren't enough you can always get full foot protectors.   All in all, it takes a while to figure out what's going to work best to keep you warm, but try, it will be worth it. Just be a bit more cautious and aware and enjoy the snowy vistas!     Inside Tracker Update We heard Morgan Pearson talk about how Inside Tracker is helping him dial in his optimal health and diet/supplement choices. What IT is?  Inside Tracker analyzes your biomarkers, using cutting-edge science and technology, to provide ultra-customized recommendations aimed at transforming your body. A biomarker is a biological indicator of your body's internal condition, which can be measured in the blood. Tracking these biomarkers at regular intervals over time, and following a personalized plan to improve them, is a great way to transform your overall health, longevity, performance, and well-bein   What value? I've done the DNA Report and did the blood draw on Tuesday of this week. As soon as I get the results from the lab work, I'll be sure to share it. A couple weeks ago you had asked about the insights I got from Inside Tracker   DNA Reports. According to your genetic data, you're likely to have average potential to excel at power-type sports that use bursts of power such as weight-lifting and sprinting. You may have to work harder to excel at endurance sports such as distance running and cycling. Based on the genes we looked at, you have an average genetic risk for lower testosterone. If your blood testosterone levels are low, you may find it harder to reach your athletic performance goals. Much of the testosterone in your body is bound to a protein called SHBG, and only about 1 to 2 percent circulates freely in your blood.  This report looks at a single genetic variant that can affect the amount of free testosterone in your blood. You have an increased genetic potential for higher blood levels of free testosterone. If you're struggling to reach your athletic performance goals, it might be good for you to consider getting your blood tested for free testosterone. Your red blood cells are packed with hemoglobin, the oxygen transporter in red blood cells. The iron in the hemoglobin protein binds oxygen and carries it from the lungs to the rest of the body, so it's a key factor in athletic performance.  This report looks at a single genetic variant that can affect your hemoglobin level.  Based on one genetic marker, you have an average genetic risk for lower blood levels of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in your red blood cells. Your muscles need oxygen for optimal performance. Many standard blood tests include hemoglobin so check your latest report from your doctor to see what your blood hemoglobin level really is. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in red blood cell production. Since red blood cells carry oxygen to your muscles, your B12 level can be a factor in performance. This report looks at a single genetic variant that can affect your B12 level. Your body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen, so this vitamin is crucial for performance. Based on one genetic marker, you have an elevated genetic potential for slightly higher blood levels of vitamin B12. Tendons connect muscles to bone. When your tendons are flexible, you can have better overall flexibility and range of motion. You're also less likely to injure your tendons — when they're under strain, flexible tendons are more likely to stretch than tear. This flexibility is partly genetic, which is why some people naturally have tighter or looser joints and range of motion analysis examines a single genetic variant to determine your potential of tendon and ligament injury (like tendonitis and ACL tears). You have an average genetic risk for tendon stiffness and injury, but you'll still need to exercise smart. To avoid an injury, remember to warm up before your workout. Good news! Based on a single genetic variant, you're not at increased risk of gluten sensitivity. There are no guarantees, of course, so if you develop any food sensitivities make sure to rule out gluten. Good news — based on a single gene variant, you're not likely to develop lactose intolerance. There are no guarantees, of course, so if you develop any food sensitivities make sure to rule out dairy. You have a gene variant that makes you more likely to have a peanut allergy, but your chances of actually having a peanut allergy are still very low. The average risk of a peanut allergy is 1.5%; your potential risk is only 3%. If you have any food sensitivities, you'll want to get tested to find out whether you should avoid peanuts. While your DNA is your master code, things don't always get built exactly according to plan. There are many factors that affect how you grow and change and react to your surroundings. Your DNA is only one factor. Upgrade your InsideTracker experience to include blood analysis, and we'll combine your DNA and blood results in an exclusive report. You'll discover how you are currently expressing your genetic potential, and receive the best, mostpersonalized recommendations, all scientifically proven to help you achieve your health goals.

He started coaching with the United States Cycling Federation (now USA Cycling) in 1990, was the U.S. Men's Road Cycling team coach for the 1992 Olympic Games and the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team Head Coach for the 1996 Olympic Games.   In the winter of 1986, Chris suffered a broken femur in a cross-country skiing accident. He raced a shortened season in 1987, but a series of knee surgeries kept him from returning to full strength. In 1988-89, Chris raced domestically in the U.S. for the Schwinn-Wheaties Professional Cycling Team before retiring at the end of the 1989 season.   Chris was the U.S. Men's Road Cycling team coach for the 1992 Olympic Games. He was named the U.S. National Coaching Director and led “Project ‘96”, a multi-disciplinary effort to put the most technologically and physiologically prepared team on the start line at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. Project '96 led to major advances in aerodynamics – including the GT Superbike – as well as altitude training, heat acclimatization, and hyperoxic training. Many of the sports science advances made during Project '96 are still in use at the elite and amateur levels of endurance sports. Chris was the Head Coach of the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team in 1996. In 1997, he joined the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the international governing body for cycling headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, as Olympic Solidarity Coaching Instructor. He is well known for being the personal coach to cyclist Lance Armstrong - as well as George Hincapie, ice-hockey player Saku Koivu and swimmer Ed Moses. Athletes under his tutelage have reportedly won a combined total of 33 medals at the Olympics, World Championships, and Pan American Games.   Chris Carmichael is the founder and CEO of Carmichael Training Systems, Inc.

A study into bike theft in the UK has revealed that a staggering 1,100 bikes are stolen every day, and yet, theft is rarely a barrier discussed by policymakers looking to increase cycling participation.   Each year, 80,000 stolen bikes go unclaimed for, presumably with owners either shelling out for a new model, or giving up on their cycling altogether, an unfortunate fate given that a fifth of owners listed their bicycle and kit as their ‘most important possession'.   Whilst the survey, commissioned by Direct Line, showed that 16% of its participants spent a “whopping £500 on their bike and accessories”, a 2021 study across Cycling Weekly's publisher's readers put the average spend figure at £2,685 (Future Publishing BikeTrack Survey, 2021).   For enthusiasts - the people for whom cycling is already a regular pastime, and who are therefore less likely to be put off by road traffic - the loss of a bike is likely an even more substantial financial outlay, arguably making bike theft a key detractor.   Statistics from the UK and US show that whilst 19% and 20% of victims report the loss of a bicycle to the police, only 5% of those stolen are returned each year. Instead, victims, and indeed cycling security brands are putting in the effort to seek solutions.   One owner lucky (or, resourceful) enough to have his stolen bikes returned in November last year was David Wilkins, who used an AirTag GPS tracker to help police retrieve three stolen bikes, the highest in value a £10,000 Specialized.   Relaying the story to Cycling Weekly, Wilkins told us: “[The police] were very helpful, but I got the impression they couldn't do too much as they said the location wasn't specific enough,” he “took the matter into [his] own hands” and even having located the bikes was told by police that the “AirTag could still be inaccurate," only gaining traction when he and an officer “pressed our ears up against the window of the property” and “heard beep, beep, beep.” Whilst the police no doubt have a lot on their hands, it shouldn't be down to victims to play Cluedo on tens of thousands of pounds worth of stolen belongings.   Bike locks have also become more sophisticated, with the likes of Hiplok seeking to produce an angle grinder-resistant solution last year.     What's New in the 303:   Riding, Being Safe and Having Fun in the Cold–Things to Think About This article will hopefully point out some not so obvious challenges, ideas and solutions to help you enjoy winter riding outdoors more.   Riding outside in the Colorado winter comes with increased risks, but often with un-anticipated rewards. I, like so many, have come to enjoy indoor riding much more thanks to my smart trainer (Saris H3) and my motivating software, Zwift. But it doesn't replace the crisp Colorado air and snowy vistas and a sense of not only being outside and refreshed, but sort of conquering the elements too.   Yes, as we know, there can be single layer, short sleeved days in the middle of Winter here along the front range, but rarely is it good to leave the house without at least a vest, gloves, arm warmers and “legs”. For me, come mid-November the toe covers are on and stay on until  March.   Shadows: The sun angle is lower and causes much deeper and darker shadows. So much so if you look at these two pictures you will barely see a rock (about the size of the palm of my hand) in the shadow about 8 feet ahead compared to when I moved the rock into the sun a few inches to the left. These pictures were taken at 1:30pm. Hazards like rocks, potholes and especially ice are well hid by shadows, even narrow ones from a fence post. Also the colder surface temperature in a shadow can house clear “black” ice—super dangerous to cyclists.   Moved the rock into the sun Visibility: With the sun angle lower, sun glare happens much earlier in the day and is more intense and lasts longer. Bright colors or lights won't be as effective. Wearing a lightweight vest or jacket and leaving it unzipped makes it flap and draws attention (as long as it's not too annoying to yourself).   Roads vs. Bike paths. While bike paths might offer a safer feeling with no cars, they can often be much sloppier longer after a snow storm. That's because most paths follow the grade of the land so they slope in one direction. Thus snow or water on the sides tend to drain into the path rather than away from it like on a road. Roads are generally “crowned” in the middle and slope towards drainage and dry out quicker and sit higher than the surrounding land.   Route Planning: Avoid riding past 4pm for reasons noted above with sun glare and quick temperature changes. If riding late, avoid riding into the sun so plan your routes accordingly. Also, riding in canyons can be very unpredictable with even deeper shadows. They hold snow and ice longer and coatings of mag chloride used to melt snow can leave roads looking almost wet and further disguise ice. Cold air pockets in canyons can drop temperatures very quickly. Rides with steep climbs that make us sweat might make us extra chilly going down, so bringing a large, thin, easy-to-put-on jacket for descents is often worthwhile. Routes with short climbs, rolling hills and some more technical turns offer variety which can be good for “moving around” on the bike with standing and shifting hands that will help keep you warmer.   Body fatigue: On a road or triathlon bike in particular, you will feel the road more in the cold. The bike feels stiffer in the cold, your body is typically stiffer so eventually you will feel more fatigue from the jarring and vibration than when it's warm. Lowering your tire pressure 5lbs or so can make a big difference in comfort.   Clothing: In general we all know about the importance of layers and the wonderful fabrics that allow moisture wicking and wind blocking. Probably the biggest bangs for the buck are a good base layer for your torso, toe covers, arm and leg warmers, neck gators, and a skull cap. All of these can be fairly affordable and when added to jackets, vests, jerseys etc, can make a huge difference in comfort. They carry easily, and can be easy to take off and on in changing temperatures. Water and windproof fabrics are great, but can sometimes cause sweating which will eventually make you cold. If it's sunny out, maybe just opt for basic gloves and outerwear.   Fit is king, just like a bike.

(Jan. 4, 2022) /ENDURANCESPORTSWIRE/ – PeopleForBikes, a national bicycling advocacy nonprofit and the U.S. bicycle industry's trade association, will have several staff members participating in panels and presentations at the upcoming CES trade show, taking place Jan. 5-8, 2022 in Winchester, Nevada.   CES — the most influential tech event in the world — has been the global stage for innovation for more than 50 years. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association, CES is the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and global innovators.   “We could not be more excited and proud to have members of our team speaking at such an important conference,” said Jenn Dice, president and CEO of PeopleForBikes. “We know that technology like electric bicycles have a massive potential to completely revolutionize the way Americans recreate and move about their everyday lives. Having the opportunity to share our work and knowledge with such a large audience will only grow PeopleForBikes' and the bike industry's role as thought leaders in this space.”   PeopleForBikes, Call2Recycle and industry leaders from Alta Cycling Group and Bosch eBike Systems will be sharing the latest information on the industry wide electric bicycle battery recycling program during a panel on Wednesday, Jan. 5 from 1:30 to 1:55 p.m. Anticipating a massive increase in electric bicycle use for both recreation and transportation, more than 40 bike industry leaders from 20 PeopleForBikes member companies worked together to design the nationwide program. It aims to address the environmental concerns with lithium ion battery recycling and ensure batteries at their end of life end up in the proper recycling stream and out of landfills, and represents the first transportation sector united under one battery recycling solution.   PeopleForBikes Director of Federal Affairs Noa Banayan will join Dave Snyder of CalBike for an update on the federal e-bike policies, like the E-BIKE Act and three-class definition. The E-BIKE Act would offer Americans a refundable tax credit of up to $1500 on the purchase of a qualifying new electric bicycle. Banayan will also provide larger updates on the role of e-bikes in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the status of the Build Back Better Act, which proposes nearly $12 billion for bikes, including the e-bike tax credit, a bicycle commuter benefit and climate and equity infrastructure grants.   “In 2021, policymakers at every level of government in the U.S. began to leverage the power of e-bikes to meet larger policy goals on climate change, economic growth, equity and mobility,” said Banayan. “In 2022, PeopleForBikes aims to promote meaningful and wide reaching incentives for e-bikes and bike riding in 2022, including the E-BIKE Act and the Bicycle Commuter Act before Congress.”   Ash Lovell, Ph.D., PeopleForBikes' electric bicycle policy and campaign director, will join a panel on Thursday, Jan. 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. on the opportunity electric cargo bikes provide for urban delivery. The panel, which will include speakers from the University of Washington's Urban Freight Lab, Coaster Cycles and BrightDrop, will cover electric cargo bike's role in the future of last-mile delivery and micromobility and what regulatory and legislative considerations need to be accounted for to make their adoption a reality.   What's New in the 303:   El Tour De Tucson Rob Quinn Style_Apacheria Part 3 By Rob Quinn, Dirt Journal   Dateline 1736. Twenty miles south of the Mexican border. Rancher Bernardo de Urrea, a Mexican of Basque heritage knew all too well what a full moon meant. It meant a higher-than-average chance of raiding Apaches who routinely swept through the Rancheros in search of plunder but so far, de Urrera's little slice of paradise had been left alone. Named after a Basque term that roughly translates into sturdy oak, he named his Ranchero Arizona. And the rest as they say is history.   One threat that's accompanying the full moon for me, is the 38th annual El Tour de Tucson 102 mile bike race. I say race because the entire course is closed to traffic and your time is recorded and a winner named. Although it has the laid-back vibe of a Ride-the-Rockies type event, the clock is ticking and you see a higher degree of effort. I've done the event a dozen times starting when we lived in San Diego over 30 years ago. It's a great way to end the season and keep the training up. It's also a fun getaway for my non cyclist (a little Mountain biking) wife who is flying into PHX Sky Harbor airport (always liked that name, reminds me of a Dead or Panic song)  then driving down to Tucson aka “The Old Pueblo” the next day with me.   This is a multi-part series on Rob's journey to the Southwest to ride his mountain bike and road bike, Part one: HERE, Part two HERE   That leaves time for one more ride. I may be stupid but I'm not crazy. If you noticed I never mentioned my road bike in the previous two articles, it's because you'd have to be absolutely bat-shit nuts to ride a road bike in Phoenix. This comes from a guy that rode nearly every day for a decade in Southern California.   I had my eye on an open space park called Papago Park close to our place and ASU for some off-road miles. www.tempetourism.com Described as 1,500 acres filled with hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and lagoons. What it does not mention that until recently, it was home to one of the largest homeless camps in the state. That sort of defined the area enough that when we were looking for a place for Paris Hilton (my daughter) and a nice condo in our price range was open, right across from the great trails? We passed. The camp has since been disbanded, but not unlike the desert of Apacheria, that area can be filled with outlaws and boogiemen when the sun sets.   I take off from our condo in full trail kit. 34 pound trail rig, loaded Osprey and a baggie kit. You'd have thought I was dressed like an astronaut by the looks of my neighbors as a I muscled the rig down the recently repainted steps. It's about a 3 mile ride through Tempe and across the Tempe town lake to the park. Riding on the sidewalk with headphones off, all senses needed, I am almost hit three times. The Tempe town lake is interesting. About 20 years ago they dammed the end of the Salt River and the next week that area hosted the annual IRONMAN race. It's the only time you can swim in that lake.   You can SUP, crew, or Kayak but no touchy! Which I find one step down from torture if it's a balmy 115 out and you can't jump in the lake? We all have our definition of hell. No wonder the ASU Mascot is the Sun Devil.   Out of harms way I cruise into the park. It's 12 noon and around 90 degrees. The forecast calls for a 20 degree drop for El Tour. When I enter, I see a picnic table of middle aged males drinking and smoking weed. At the top of the hill, I see a Tempe PD SUV.

SUB7 is no gimmick   “Part of the real beauty of the project is that it isn't going to be a gimmick; it is a real athletic endeavour and we are able to use the rules to best maximise the performance,” he told TRI247.   “We are able to deploy 10 support athletes in any way we want. We're looking at using the majority of these athletes to help on the bike. Alistair has got some really world-class commercial partners, so we have been working with these guys to see the latest innovations that can help to support us with this. This is going right the way through – the bike, tyres, shoes – every single thing.   “People are getting excited, they are thinking: ‘We can contribute to this and we have got some really cool ideas – let's try it'. It has been a warm and open experience so far.   “I have led the discussions and then we will bring Alistair in as well. Once we know what we can do on the bike, we can work backwards to realise what we need to do on the run and on the swim.   “Because we feel that the bike is the biggest difference, that is one where we are putting in the investment and it is possibly the most complex. We are looking at using eight of the support athletes to work with Alistair on the bike.”     The next cyclocross World Cup event will take place on snow as part of Winter Olympic bid Organisers in Val di Sole have deliberately maintained the snow to show that cyclocross could be classed as an event for the Winter Olympics.  The next meeting in the 2021/22 cyclocross World Cup season will take place at Val di Sole in the Italian Alps, and the hosts have chosen to leave compacted snow untouched.   The Alpine course forms part of a bid to show that cyclocross could be classed as a possible event for future Winter Olympic Games. The organisers have been working hard to preserve the snow as best they can with specialist snow ploughs among other machinery.   Some of the world's best riders will be competing in both the men's and women's events with Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers), Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) and Denise Betsema (Pauwels Sauces-Bingoal). Val di Sole has become known over the years as one of the main events in the mountain biking world for cross-country and downhill, with cyclocross races usually taking place in the Milan and Veneto regions. However, an expansion to the World Cup has allowed Val di Sole into the calendar.   The track is set in a stunning valley at the Nordic ski centre in Vermiglio at an altitude of 1,261 metres right at the base of the famous Passo del Tonale, which has been used in road cycling races. The temperatures are expected to be between a nippy 3°C and a pretty brutal -7°C when the sun has gone in.   The race was going to be held on snow come what may, with fake snow usually used for events such as downhill skiing and biathlon on standby. However, natural early winter snow has covered the course nicely with a further 40cm expected before the race.   Chris Mannaerts, Flanders Classics, is in Val di Sole and said in a video by the organisers: "Sometimes the track is more icy, sometimes more snow. We expect more snow, the local experts told us it could snow another 40cm but it won't be a problem because the locals are experts at preparing the snow.   "The track has two parts: there's a more technical track at the beginning and then on the other side of the river, there's a really steep hill. That will be very challenging because it's a straight line to the hill.  "We'll see who can climb to the top and who steps off the bike.

SUB7 is no gimmick   “Part of the real beauty of the project is that it isn't going to be a gimmick; it is a real athletic endeavour and we are able to use the rules to best maximise the performance,” he told TRI247.   “We are able to deploy 10 support athletes in any way we want. We're looking at using the majority of these athletes to help on the bike. Alistair has got some really world-class commercial partners, so we have been working with these guys to see the latest innovations that can help to support us with this. This is going right the way through – the bike, tyres, shoes – every single thing.   “People are getting excited, they are thinking: ‘We can contribute to this and we have got some really cool ideas – let's try it'. It has been a warm and open experience so far.   “I have led the discussions and then we will bring Alistair in as well. Once we know what we can do on the bike, we can work backwards to realise what we need to do on the run and on the swim.   “Because we feel that the bike is the biggest difference, that is one where we are putting in the investment and it is possibly the most complex. We are looking at using eight of the support athletes to work with Alistair on the bike.”     The next cyclocross World Cup event will take place on snow as part of Winter Olympic bid Organisers in Val di Sole have deliberately maintained the snow to show that cyclocross could be classed as an event for the Winter Olympics.  The next meeting in the 2021/22 cyclocross World Cup season will take place at Val di Sole in the Italian Alps, and the hosts have chosen to leave compacted snow untouched.   The Alpine course forms part of a bid to show that cyclocross could be classed as a possible event for future Winter Olympic Games. The organisers have been working hard to preserve the snow as best they can with specialist snow ploughs among other machinery.   Some of the world's best riders will be competing in both the men's and women's events with Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers), Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) and Denise Betsema (Pauwels Sauces-Bingoal). Val di Sole has become known over the years as one of the main events in the mountain biking world for cross-country and downhill, with cyclocross races usually taking place in the Milan and Veneto regions. However, an expansion to the World Cup has allowed Val di Sole into the calendar.   The track is set in a stunning valley at the Nordic ski centre in Vermiglio at an altitude of 1,261 metres right at the base of the famous Passo del Tonale, which has been used in road cycling races. The temperatures are expected to be between a nippy 3°C and a pretty brutal -7°C when the sun has gone in.   The race was going to be held on snow come what may, with fake snow usually used for events such as downhill skiing and biathlon on standby. However, natural early winter snow has covered the course nicely with a further 40cm expected before the race.   Chris Mannaerts, Flanders Classics, is in Val di Sole and said in a video by the organisers: "Sometimes the track is more icy, sometimes more snow. We expect more snow, the local experts told us it could snow another 40cm but it won't be a problem because the locals are experts at preparing the snow.   "The track has two parts: there's a more technical track at the beginning and then on the other side of the river, there's a really steep hill. That will be very challenging because it's a straight line to the hill.  "We'll see who can climb to the top and who steps off the bike. That will be the key thing in this cyclo-cross race, along with who can make the efforts over and over again."   The venue choice could see the sport of cyclocross be part of the Winter Olympics as all winter sports in the Games must take place on snow or ice. But the earliest it can become a Winter Olympic event is 2030. Inclusion would be a perfect way to get the audience-friendly sport of cyclocross into the Games, and being a winter activity, it would be wrong to have it alongside the other cycling events in the summer Games.   Discussion of including cyclocross within the Winter Olympics first came about back in 2014 when the International Olympic Committee set up a meeting with the UCI to discuss the possibilities.     What's New in the 303:   Nation Cyclocross champs Bill and Rich training   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Moreover, that it was the inaugural edition of the women's French Grand Tour called the Tour de France Féminin.  It was a 1,083 kilometer, 18 stage race that ran concurrent with the men's event.   The Dutch national team was heavily favored, with its leader Heleen Hage featuring prominently as the race's likely winner.  Little did anyone expect that an underdog American team with an unknown rider by the name of Martin would triumph.   Martin continued her strong ascending and captured the malliot jaune (yellow jersey) after the 14th stage and never looked back. Martin lead the Tour de France Féminin into Paris, marking the first and last time an American would stand on the top step of the podium.  Women Cyclists Change Tour de France Forever - The Washington Post Tour de France féminin 1984 Stage 18 results (procyclingstats.com) What Happened to the Women's Tour de France? | ... (totalwomenscycling.com)   Let's get into our interview with Marianne Martin!     Post interview discussion: Red Zinger / Coors Classic Didn't know anything about racing   Quote at 24 minutes and 45 minutes       From 1984 to 1989, the Tour de France Women was the curtain raising event for the men's event. It was organised by the Tour de France Society, organiser of the men's Tour de France. In 1990, the event changed its name and format, becoming the Tour of the EEC Women, which ran until 1993.   In 1992, a new race was created, the Tour cycliste féminin, organised in August by Pierre Boué. The race lacked stable sponsorship and with the location of stages determined by locations willing to contribute, there were long transfers between stages. Until 1998, it was the Tour Cycliste Féminin, but the Société du Tour de France, organizers of the men's Tour de France, said that infringed their trademark and in 1999 the name was changed.[2] It resumed under the name Grande Boucle Féminine Internationale, but was not held in 2004 because of organisational difficulties. It returned, smaller, in 2005. The previous tours were 10 to 15 stages; later ones had five and stayed in one region. The race also received a lower classification by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), and had a reduced field. In 2008, the race was six days and seven stages. However, in 2009 the race was only four days long with only 66 riders, after a planned race start and three stages in Britain fell through, leading winner Emma Pooley to joke that the race was "more of a Petite Boucle than Grande."[3][4] The race was discontinued after 2009.   France was left with no major women's stage race after the Tour de l'Aude Cycliste Féminin and the Route de France Féminine finished in 2010 and 2016 respectively.  For the last few years the race turned into a 1 day event titled La Course (La Course by Le Tour de France 2021 (cyclingnews.com)).   In 2022, the race is to return, with eight stages.  Zwift will be the main sponsor.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

When being asked about trying to win the Tour, which he so nearly did in 2019, "Never say never," was the answer.   "Why not think about it before the end of my career?" he continued. "There are a lot of questions to be asked and I'd need to speak to the team. But I don't want to end my time with the regret of not ever trying."   In 2019 Alaphilippe led the race for 14 days, only losing the jersey twice, once to Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) - who took the jersey from the breakaway on stage six to the top of the Super Planche des Belles Filles before ceding it back to Alaphilippe two days later - and finally to Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) after the Colombian attacked solo on the Col de l'Iseran on stage 19. On that day the general classification times were taken at the top of the Iseran due to mudslides and extreme weather, which forced the race to be stopped before the final climb to Tignes.   "I've never raced a Grand Tour thinking of winning it," Alaphilippe said, "so there wasn't the same pressure. But I can understand why it's been difficult for [Thibaut] Pinot and [Romain] Bardet," Alaphilippe said.   List of all men's winners of the Tour de France https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Tour_de_France_general_classification_winners     What's New in the 303:   Headsweats Debuts New Look with Updated Logo and Product BOULDER, Colo. (November 30, 2021) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Headsweats, the leader in high performance headwear, is rolling out an updated logo across all current and new product as part of a revamp to their brand voice and personality. The new visuals debut at The Running Event expo in Austin, Texas on December 1, and will be on product starting in January 2022.   The new mark redefines the “running man,” which has been the iconic logo for the 23-year-old company based in Boulder, CO. “The new mark represents an evolving direction for the brand as we expand to a broader audience,” said Headsweats CEO Jim Heese. “We believe the new logo simplifies the legacy mark while staying true to the brand's heritage. The mission of Headsweats is to embrace sweat as a badge of honor for athletes everywhere.”   In addition to the updated logo, Headsweats is also rolling out the Nerve, a new flagship running hat. A third of the regular weight of an average running hat, it features an internal sweatband and superior drying performance to better manage moisture. The Nerve will retail for $39.00 and will be available in Spring 2022.   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!
