How do you Rank? Georgia Gould #1, Shonny Vanlandingham #5

Think about it! This is the year when the US picks only two cyclists for the 2008 Games. At the Games, racers will come from every continent, representing many countries and differing perspectives on what is best. They are the real deal! Only those who have earned the points go!

You have to have your A-game; there are few options, and the season is long and grueling. You have to travel, which is enough to tax your body. Shonny even got sick and had to miss a race. This year, luck might get you a few wins, but to go to the Games is another thing. You have to be able to go to the World Cup, do well, and get some points. No easy task! You start according to your rank and even if your rank is high, you have to pass many that are ahead of you. So if you are ranked 40th, you have 39 racers who hit the single track before you!

The two top pros who will represent the US have to go the distance and dig deep! It's a real dog-fight at each race and it will not be an accident who goes! There is so much on the line!

Georgia Gould has stirred the 2007 pot, and the racing is hard and fast and will stay that way! She has her A-Game and to merely be in the top 5 at this time is super! A real test for our fitting, and sEMG/Dartfish. We have a lot on the line! There are so many ideas about what a person needs to get the most from their game. Time will tell!

Shonny Vanlandingham is many times NORBA Champion, which shows you that she has the fight. Again, it's a long season and the racer has many chances to do well. Think of all the support behind the racers, (coaches, bikes, etc...) . They are counting on their racers to do well.

Perhaps this is the year to "end-all" ideas on how racers needs their mtb bikes set up!

That is why Georgia and Shonny both use our input, and our systems! Racers will not use anything that will not improve their game!

How do you rank? There are three who made it to the next level using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish systems.
