Well it’s a new year and with that brings some changes as well as a chance to refocus and re-energize.
I will be wearing the color yellow with pride this year as I’ve hooked up with Mavic for 2015! I’ll be wearing Mavic Yellow from head to toe as well as riding their Crossmax Enduro wheels, tires and shoes again. I loved the performance of this wheel-set and tires last year and am just as excited to have them on the new bike again for 2015.
Also new and yellow is my new Transition Bikes Scout!
I’m excited to have the following companies supporting me this year, I can’t recommend these brands enough!
- Transition Bikes
- MRP Bike
- Ryders Eyewear
- All Mountain Style
- Honey Stinger
- Community Bikes and Boards
- Crank Brothers
For 2015 I’ve been set up with a training plan from Matt Miller, Ph. D. candidate. Matt Miller is a PhD researcher at Massey University focusing on factors relating to Mountain Bike race performance. Matt’s focus is on Mountain Bike research and evidence-based training, catering to athletes in Enduro, XC and Downhill. You can keep up with Matt on his Facebook page MTBPhD.
Since starting his program in January I’ve noticed a difference in my strength and endurance. Matt’s focus on the science and how to build endurance and strength is very interesting to me, you can see your improvement through the numbers. If you are looking to take your training to the next level or want to get the most out of your training, connect with Matt!
