Tim’s Training TIps: Plan your season like a pro

You probably know a team that functions like a well-oiled machine. They get team rides started on time and without any drama while also somehow incorporating training components, skill development and team building…all in the same ride!
These teams inspire dreams of being a part of a group that functions seamlessly at such a high level, though we may not know exactly how to make it happen. The secret is surprisingly simple: focus on meaningful planning.

Shoulder-season Round-up

It’s that time of year when the forecast calls for 80 degrees…with a 70% chance of snow flurries. Mother nature loves to keep us on our toes, that’s for sure. But how is anyone supposed to dress for a ride or for NICA practice when even our most trusted weather apps don’t know what’s going on?!

Coeus: Connecting Training Zones & Injury Prevention

As coaches, we know crashes are inevitable. Part of our duty is to try and mitigate risk as much as possible. We can approach this by adequately teaching athletes proper skills, selecting appropriate trails for practice sessions, and educating riders on the inherent risk of the sport. While there are many factors that contribute to a crash, there’s one common theme across the research: fatigue. When athletes are fatigued they are much more likely to make mistakes that lead to injuries. Learn how to prevent injury with the use of training zones in your practice.
