Pua Mata (WN) Takes Whiskey 50! In her words "Hot Damm."

The 2012 Whiskey 50 had a world class elite field. A real test to measure your bike set ups and you skills, as racers attempt to best each other, in the hunt, on the trail, and WN user Pua Mata got on trail, got the lead, got the kill. That will change the way she thinks for the next hunt!

Racing is a tough job, and it only takes the smallest of % to change the game. We know, if you change the fit, even by a hair, that can change your game. We see a lot of fit ideas out there and never have we paid someone to use our systems. Only through the course of time can we track the success of many. Only with time can you prove what works best! Through many years, we have had a ton of kills, working w/ the top dogs. Over that time, so move on, others stick to our methods. Only history will tell the story.

WN 3D CAD can make a difference and it can challenge any fit idea, any pedal ideas in the world! WN has had the results for many years at the highest level, by many different body types and we love to see someone like Pua be lead dog of the hunt!

Pua can mix it up with anyone short or long race, she played her cards right and got the WN. Pua is well known to the world, to be one of the best in ultra 24 hour races, 100 mile races, and now showing the world that she can WN at Whiskey 50 mile race.
She will have a new outlook on shorter races to come! Nothing like putting the teeth to the kill.

Keep an eye on her in 2012 "That dog can hunt."

Sue Butler, living at Sea Level in Portland, OR has a motor, but has a harder time at elevation, but she can hunt and be lead dog also. No excuses and she will not bring that up, but if you can't get air or live at higher ground like many of the top pros, it can be very taxing to race them. But Sue Butler is always up for a good hunt!

WN has thousands of folks in the data. Podium filled with them!

What's a Podium? It's a platform on which a person stands, to be seen by an audience. The higher, the better!

Endorphin |enˈdôrfin|
nounBiochemistryany of a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system and having a number of physiological functions. They are peptides that activate the body's opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect, and nothing does it more for our addiction than WN'ing or being on the podium. It's how you measure what you are about!

Huge results this past weekend across the USA. Most of the cycling success was on the podium, names of people who are in the WN data! These are big races from AZ., in mtb 20, 50 miles, to TN men & women 100 mile mtb, to GA., Speed Week, etc... and the Joe Martin Road Stage races in Arkansas, that's a lot of different hunting.

That pretty much covers it a lot of trails (hard and soft). Can you say on trail, not good results, rather great results and in all types of cycling (e.g. hunt's).

If you are at the pro level, a alpha dog, you want an edge, in fact an inch can be the mile! We do just that, provide the real edge that makes a difference.

Racing is the sporting test of what seems to work best on a given day, a given year, as equipment does change and so does the body. Racing is tough job, you have to be a "Alpha Dog," you can't afraid of a good hunt, tuck tail.

Sport is about physical and mental extertion and bring what you have to the game. That means that if you bike is not set up just so, the person who does have it just so might get the kill first.
WN has been hunting for a lifetime or two, that's why we can! It's how we eat first. WN has had it's nose to the ground for over 50 years.

How do you claim that your methods are going to produce something for the wall? The only way we known, is to be in the hunt and we have been on trail for 15 years now. We have a lot of new pups to train, to get her done! Ha!

Don't think that if you hands are in the wrong place it doesn't make a difference!

If you have the mind-set or you're one of those "Devils advocate" that loves a debate, undermined a trend, we can't help you! You are going to be negative on any subject, pick a bone, express or imply denial, make disagreement.

Perhaps you should step up to the plate, get in the hunt and show you're goods! You might be in a dog fight, and the ego is going to be put to the test. When you have 50 Alpha dogs ready to hunt all at the same time isn't a joyride. Lead dogs earn their keep, that's how they eat.

From year to year you can't just go on trail and think you're going to be the best. It doesn't work like that, but if you aren't at the hunt, you never know.

That dog hunt! Let's go hunting boys, and by the way we invite the gals, they can hunt also!

Postural Alignment in Sport

The pelvis is a segmental link in the human-link chain, bridging the important parts at the sacrum and the lower extremity at the femur.

During active weight bearing, not just static weight bearing, the lower extremity is somewhat fixed. That means the pelvis is free to flex and extend relative to the hard parts like the femur and its many shapes and sizes.

So, if the pelvis flexes or extends in a zone, relative to the femur, the vertebral column must adjust and realign itself to the pelvis.

Major antagonistic muscles play a huge role in aligning everything up. The resistive functions of these muscles are also worked over by gravity for stability. They serve as "antigravity" muscles!

So why do we see so many fit ideas that don't fit relative to strengths and flexibilities?

For starters, you can't track the stability from the outside!

Any less than ideal alignments of the system causing (lordosis, scoliosis, and or kyphosis) or attempt using correctable antagonistic muscles is a waste!

No wonder so many wear out fast! They spend the whole time working harder, maybe its a way to burn fat for a firmer look?
