Time Trial Know-How

This weekend many VQers will be racing at the Double Bong Time Trial on Sunday, plus Vision Quest Coaching starts its first practice for the 2-Man Time Trial that many members are participating in on July 12. Below you’ll find a great document that Doug McCleran wrote about how to do a Time Trial. You’ll also find that many of the elements apply to doing a triathlon as well. To all of the VQers racing the Double Bong, I suggest that you use this as your outline for having a successful event this weekend.


Five Days and Counting

It’s a little hard for me to believe that it’s that time of year again when I’m packing up the bags, doing my research and getting set for what has become an annual tradition to cover the Tour de France. The Tour doesn’t kick off until Saturday, July 4, but I’ll be heading overseas a few days beforehand. Last year, I was busy interviewing cyclists and teams before the race as part of some of the Versus TV coverage, and this year should be some of the same. Plus it’s nice to squeeze in a little touring before the Tour begins.

With only five days to spare before I land in France, the excitement is definitely building at home. I’m thrilled to be covering the Tour again, especially with all of the hype about Lance Armstrong’s return. But I’m not the only one who’s excited. My daughter Rocky can’t contain herself either!
