Roka has just released their new line of goggles they've named spctrm performance optics.

When it comes to goggles, a person can typically find a pair that work from any of the leading  manufacturers.  You'll find the same with one of Roka's 4 styles.

In the past, the only thing I cared about was that the goggl...

The photo above is the Gold Hill loop.  It's one of my favorite rides in Boulder.  You can do it on pretty much any bike.  We got a break in the weather this week so I took the MTB out for a hot lap. 


I've always believed that it's easier to advise others when you've experienced things for yourself.  That'...

It's been a rough winter for a lot of the US, especially the East Coast.  In Boulder, we just broke the February snowfall record with over 57 inches and more on the way.     

This time of year can become stressful as you start to feel the pressure of the race season approaching.  That ear...

I’m happy to announce that 51 Speedshop (Myself and Dave Ripley) will be joining the Guru Fit Advisory (not to be mistaken with the Guru bike company). We will be responsible for creating and teaching the level 2 TT/Triathlon courses.

In my opinion, Guru has a great opportunity with their fit school.  First, t...

This piece was brought on by a few things that came up over the past week.  The first was a consulting call I was doing with another coach and the second was during a presentation I was giving at the Tri Shop in Texas. 

I started thinking about all the advice I’ve given out over the years.  All the...

It's been over a week since I completed the Coast ride that Chris Hauth and Sag Monkey hosted.  The ride took us from Marin to Santa Monica.  We took a few detours but we ended up riding around 500 miles with 26,000 ft of vertical in 4 days.  That was a lot of riding  for January....

Every year, Tiny T starts talking to me about doing the Coast to Coast ride that Chris Hauth organizes through SagMonkey.com.  And, every year I've declined.  

Living in Boulder full time, the thought of taking on such a task the second week of January has never been appealing.  This year, it's much of the same, bu...

Blood monitoring is an essential aspect of training for some, and an "insurance policy" for others. Without optimal physiology you cannot achieve optimal performance. The goal of blood monitoring is to get...

I have friends who eat healthier than anybody, but it takes them all day. And if they don't have their sprouted bread, they go into a seizure. I can eat a Big Mac. I'm not going to love it, but it won't put me into toxic shock. It's like if a car is too high-performance, then it's sensitive to any kind of f...

This is a core/stability program that is simple to follow and does a great job of targeting your core, hip and glute region. 

I wrote about the strength program that I have my athletes use last week.  Once your strength program has been established, I'll have them insert this stability routine in place of on...
