Huge congratulations to our VeloPro Brand Ambassadors for incredible performances at the extremely challenging Swift Summit 200/100 in beautiful Lebanon Oregon on August 10th. From impossible climbs, to covered bridges, to stretches of gravel, the Swift Summit had it all!
My First Century Veteran and VeloPro Brand Ambassador Adam Fast gives us the inside scoop behind his preparations for the very challenging 2019 Swift Summit NW 200/100. The Swift Summit is a gran fondo style race, mostly self-supported with only a couple of aid stations/control points along the route. The 100-mile event has 5,800 ft of climbing. The 200-mile event has 11,000 ft of climbing. This is no easy day in the saddle for any racer.
No purchase necessary to enter or win. The VeloPro/Verve Cycling InfoCrank Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 or older as of date of entry. Void where prohibited by law.
Congratulations! Cycling is the only sport where performance is absolute and can be definitively measured at every juncture. This is commonly referred to as “training or riding with power.” Power allows you to train with a specificity that other sports can’t match.
Coach Kadir's annual Marin Cycling Camp is one of the best times in cycling. Every May for the last 13 years, he leads a fully supported week of blissed out rides in beautiful Northern California. It's a perfect way to ride yourself into shape for the Spring and Summer cycling season. Coach keeps the group small so everyone get plenty of personal attention. Here's how this year unfolded.
It has been a long journey. We kicked-off the My First Century program in January of this year. Ten athletes of all ages, genders and walks of life signed up for a life changing goal, to complete a 100-mile ride. After training for six months, how did our MFC athletes do? Did they reach their goal?
