Human Performance Lab at ECU

The Capri Foundation Elite Cycling Team gathered in Greenville NC to get our VO2 Max, Lactate Threshold, Body Fat % and some bio metrics stuff analyzed. It was a super fun experience and a chance to ride with all the guys. Our training camp kicks off this week, friday-monday in Asheville NC.

I am also excited to be working with a coach this season, previously of AEG-Jet Networks Pro Cycling Team, Hugh Moran. I think it will be an awesome experience and a good relationship.

It is only about 5 weeks until my first race of the Year: Valley of the Sun stage race in Arizona, February 14-16.

til next time
