American Mt. Classic - Bishop/Sawicki/Juarez Winners!

Q: What do these people have in common?

A: They are all tough Pilgrims and are supported by the attention to details that Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish provide.

Brian Head, Utah at 10.700 elv., is no walk in the park, unless you are a Rocky Mt. elk or have a horse to help. Paying attention to the small details makes a difference.

Only the strongest bodies, strong hearts and the best lungs work at this elevation.  It's not made for humans!  Every pedal stroke is important! 

Perhaps you have seen the classic movie, Jeremiah Johnson w/ super star Robert Redford and think about the country it was filmed in.  Now you understand what kind of animals do well in that kind of country. It's strong animals like elk! Elk have 4 super strong legs, large lungs, large hearts and can move around in this country w/ no problem at all, and any direction they want to (up, down, and around).

In the movie, the old trapper hunting elk in this steep country said to Jeremiah Johnson to hurry and hang-on to his horse, has it would help pull him faster up the hill, and then to walk on the downhill side, next to his horse to hide his legs from the elk's eyes above, they had to move up the hill fast!  Old trapper "ant no country for man-folk." Jeremiah said to the old trapper, but he will see my legs under the horse!  The wise old trapper "elk can't count legs - Pilgrim." 

Pilgrim - a person who travels on long journeys!  And we can say that about both Jeremiah & Pua as they race.

No horses to help pull Jeremiah Bishop & Pua  Sawicki, it seems they have four legs to navigate this tough country!  They can haul it e.g. elk, and we know they count every pedal stroke and they make everyone count!

The second stage of the American Mountain Classic mtb bike stage race has 3 of the leaders backed by Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

The stage races for 55 miles and in at the end, it was Jeremiah Bishop (Trek VW) by a half wheel.

The pro women saw Pua Sawicki shoot out for the lead from the gun and that was the way it was at the end as she crossed the line.  She was chased by Jenny Smith (Trek VW).

Did you know that most about 1/2 of top pro women use our fits?
