Excerpts from Podium Insight article:
“Hincapie Sportswear, BMC and Holowesko Partners have expanded their support of development cycling by creating a professional Under 23 development team for the 2012 racing season. The new BMC-Hincapie Sportswear Team is registered with USA Cycling as a UCI continental team and is the official development program for the BMC Racing Team.
“The new racing team is composed of graduates of the former Hincapie-Holowesko Partners amateur development team, and a selection of talented young international riders. The full roster includes Alder Martz (USA), Aleksa Velickovic (SRB), Blair Turner (USA), Isaac Enderline (USA), Jovan Zekavica (SRB), Larry Warbasse (USA), Matt Lipscomb (USA), Michael Stone (USA), Parker Kyzer (USA), Tanner Putt (USA), Tyler Karnes (USA), Ty Magner (USA), A.J.

Training Camps in Southern Utah —
We are working with NICA (www.nationalmtb.org) this week on mapping out courses for Utah High School Mountain Bike League, including venues you may remember from the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Fall colors & Indian summer weather here in the Wasatch Mountains have made this an additionally satisfying effort.
From KORR Medical Technologies, maker of our VO2 Max Equipment:
“A VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person’s ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness
and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is ‘milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.’ It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.
“A complete VO2 Fitness test can give trainers and clients the tools to set realistic goals and assess improvement… Many people are inefficient exercisers, with no understanding of what specific heart rate, intensity or duration would best help them reach their specific goals such as fat burning, endurance training, or cardio conditioning. An initial VO2 Max test can clarify the specific target heart rates that will enable each individual to reach their fitness goals more effectively, with less fatigue and fewer injuries. Periodic retesting provides motivating feedback as the fitness program progresses.
“The test also determines the number of calories burned during every level of exercise…
“VO2 Max is a valuable tool for serious athletes to assess performance and evaluate training regimens. Even though extensive training can sometimes cause an athlete to reach a plateau in VO2 Max, he can still use his VO2 Max test results to make further improvements in performance. This is accomplished as he pushes to increase anaerobic threshold (AT) and maintain that threshold for longer periods of time. This enhances both endurance and cardiovascular performance.”
Proper biomechanics apply to all sports, not just bike fit.
Many of our athletes are trail and road running this time of year for run-specific fitness, cyclocross or triathlon conditioning, as well as cross-training for downhill and cross-country skiing, road cycling and mountain biking, etc.
Whatever your sport(s) of preference, the Pose Method® can prove indispensable to help reduce the risk of injury, and to make you a more comfortable and efficient human machine.

Be on the lookout for write-ups we’ll be posting regarding the importance of functional as well as fitness training.
