Stage 2 Abu Dhabi Tour
Boonen has had a tough year. Some interesting tactics for the intermediate sprint. Who is at fault? The guy getting pinched into the curb sprinting where there was too little space? Or the guy doing the pinching for drifting at a angle and not a straighter path?

2016 Indoor Winter Cycling Training Program
It’s that time, everybody…to plan how to cycle through the winter so you are ready to roll come March next season. For your consideration, I run a 3 month program (Dec, Jan and Feb) which is not a spin class, no disrespect intended. You ride your own bikes on your own indoor trainers…twice per week for 12 weeks…1.5 hours per workout…intense on and off bike, cycling specific training. The program involves multiple stages of training including strength, VO2, power, speed, and time trial phases. I participated in this program in KC for several years, along with all the top racers up there. If you want to rock in March, then this is the ticket…ask the participants who trained in the program with me last year. The classes will be in the evenings. Cost is $240 for the entire program.
With the help of Caroline Proctor, I have secured a space/building in Fayetteville just a few doors down from The Bike Route. Space is available for 20 people for sure…maybe a few more. I’m limited to 20 slots so first come, first serve. The first 20 people to commit to the entire program get those spots. Last year, I had folks “say” they were going to come and did not, so I need a $100 reservation to “commit.” Of course, the $100 reservation will count toward the $240 program cost. Why $240 when last year it was half that? The Bike Route donated their space to the program last year. It is too small this year to use so I must pay rent this year. I need to be sure that I have the participation to pay the rent.
Think of this as your Tuesday Worlds or fast group ride. Seriously, riding indoors with other motivated cyclists is just like riding outdoors. You push yourself harder than riding alone.
Please email me Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to commit to the program. I will respond to let you know your status. If you get a slot, I will need the reservation $100 by Nov. 1.
FYI, I may offer a 2nd program if interest is high. Also, not everybody can commit to twice per week but would like once per week, instead. Let me know if you fall into that category. Look forward to working with everyone.
