CX has to be one of the hardest forms of bicycle racing out there, requiring some specialized training to ensure success. Coach Tim tells us all about it!
The days are getting shorter, the big events have passed, and our attention is turning to preparation for next season. Tim explains how the proper design and execution of this off-season phase pays big dividends later.
The physical and mental challenges of late-season events can be significant. Our minds and bodies yearn for rest even as we get ready to go for it again! How do we prepare for these one-more-time events?
Winners think differently. They are constantly focused on moving forward, getting things done, taking action, and improving. Click through for more about why winners win!

- Ex. 165 lb (75kg) athlete in training would eat 120 grams (480cals) of a 3,000-3,500 cal day versus 2000-2500 in carbohydrates.
- In comparison it is not a large portion of the calories.
- 120 grams of protein looks like this:
- 6oz chicken - 40g
- 2 eggs - 12g
- 1C plain yogurt - 6g
- 1 scoop whey protein - 25g
- 2C black beans and rice - 14g
- 1C Quinoa - 24g
