Battle the Bears Results! Georgia Gould gets 5th in Pro Men!

I just got a phone call from Nat Ross. Nat is our new dealer in Golden, CO and wanted to inform us that Georgia Gould just raced the top pro men in Colorado and held her own! If you want to get to the top you need to race with the best.

We see it in Indy Cart and we see it on the bike. There are women who can hold their own in any race they enter!

We watched Kristin Armstrong do the same here in Boise, ID. She races the Cat 1 pro men for a reason, to race! You can't just sit on a wheel in the Cat 1 men. They don't care how she looks, and they give her the real business! The end-all is, she is always in the top 5!

You have to be ready to test yourself and not gage yourself with what the locals are doing! You can't just ride with the pack, but stick your nose out in the wind! By racing with the men, the gals can find out how to race at another level.

Georgia is testing her fitness level, evaluating her needs to help determine how competitive she can be. To do that, you can't let your ego get in the way, or ride to only ride! Georgia is racing to race, which is why she loves her Wobble-naught fit! She can count on it when she is racing, going hard, not just camping out!

Just like Kristin Armstrong, Georgia Gould is racing Georgia Gould, taking her game to another level and she needs the fit to do that. They both are separating their games from the norm, they are riding faster, and being pushed harder, when they race the pro men.

Far too many times, we see female racers just sitting on the bike in a passive manner; riding with the pack.

So the question is this: How do you get faster?

To separate yourself from the pack, you need cutting-edge techniques, training, and racing information. You need to test and achieve your potential for improvement. Optimal racing performance comes from being pushed hard!

There are few gals that can haul it, even against the men!
