Summary:
A fantastic new high attention, limited number cycling camp with Joe Friel designed to improve your climbing and descending skills. Based in Boulder, Colorado from May 11th-15th, this is an excellent training venue for cyclists and triathletes.
Description:
This camp is aimed at cyclists and triathletes who are looking to benefit under the tuition & expert eye of Joe Friel, author of the best selling Training Bible series of books and co-author of Going Long. If you are racing a hilly Ironman this season such as Lake Placid, Canada, St. George or Alpe d'huez then this would be a perfect camp for you. It would also be ideal preparation if you are preparing for a hilly Centurion Cycle. Joe Friel will be assisted by his son and Professional Coach, Dirk Friel. They both live and train in Boulder and are perfectly placed to take you on some of the best rides in the area to test your climbing ability and teach you how to become faster by improving your technique both in and out of the saddle. The rides around Boulder feature perfect roads with wide shoulders for safety, featuring mile after mile of traffic free routes and lots of hills, Boulder is the ideal place to train. Swimming pool and running trails are closeby for you to use in your own time but this is a cycling specific camp. All long rides will have a support vehicle carrying spares, water and nutrition. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best coaches in the world and to make dramatic improvements in your approach to training, climbing and descending so that you can make the next step forward in your racing. Due to popular demand this training camp does not include accommodation allowing local athletes to take advantage of an amazing opportunity to be coached by Joe Friel on his local rides and roads. There will be evening classroom sessions with Joe Friel and Dirk Friel focusing on topics including training with power, nutrition and the mental aspect of racing. You will also receive 2 professional sports massage therapy treatments to assist recovery from the long hilly rides during the camp. Participants will receive a technical t-shirt from our Official Clothing Partner Skinfit and nutrition products from our Official Nutrition Partner PowerBar.**You should have at least a low gear of 39x27 but a 34x28 is recommended. There are some very steep climbs we will be riding. Please also remember to bring rain gear and cold weather gear (full arm & leg covers, full finger gloves, vest/jacket, tights,waterproof, skull cap) for high altitude riding. We will divide into two groups based on the ability of the other riders on the camp so that every participant is able to ride to their ability.
