Georgia Gould takes Portland XC! Will take Overall USGP!

This is racing and if you want a war, just say something about someone in the press. Nothing heats one's blood more than someone making a comment in the press about someone and their skills. We get it all the time about our Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfishfi. It only makes us go that much harder!!!

Wait till you see what we intend on doing this year on the road with all our high-tech. It has been a long time coming, but we will start the 2008 year with the best on road real time high-tech tools (WN,Myo-facts sEMG,Dartfish, SRM, more) you can have!!! What is it you want to know or learn? We can address it all while you are on the road in real time and then we can show you more "WATER".

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink!

This will make the horse drink the water. We just changed the game again!

Just like Georgia Gould, we also refuse to get into that kind of "mud" throwing in the media or perform the underground methods to get people to listen to us! There are many who "smooth talk" but results are the end all. They say all kinds of stuff to get your ear, or your money. It should be noted that Georgia only throws "mud" as do most of our dirt racer's do, from her rear wheel turning over.

This is a very funny sport! There seems to be a union? There way or the high way!

The very same thing happen to me in another sport. I coached Anke Friedrich from Germany to NCAA 89/90 in SL & GS Championships for two years running. She changed the game, then she got her masters at the UofU, then went on to get her PhD at MIT. There where many coaches, trainers within the top ranks saying "You can't do that". I have a PhD and I know and make the say on what is! Now some of those same people head national cycling org? One of the heads said that sEMG doesn't make a difference? Ha! According to Dartfish, only a few years ago, the same people said that very thing about their software. They did not want to use it, said they could not see how it would work, besides they already have their coaches. Now I understand they are trying to learn it?

As one of our top pros Shonny Vanlandingham said during working with her at her home on the Kona, the Big Island, "I can't read this stuff, it would drive me crazy. Its best, not to respond, nor read this stuff, rather just to stay focused on what she does "RACE".

Georgia Gould win races!!! That is a fact, a Myo-fact! She uses our Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish and reads our emails to her about racing! Things that make a difference! It is hard claim a "Sliver Bullet"! That is why their are so many coaches, teams with so many different ideas. You can be on one team vs. another, use their services and that can make a difference. Luna is one of those great teams and their results are real. We are so pleased to work with their top guns!

It was written, that: Gould (Luna) might have read or took her rivals' comments to heart, she took control of the race early and opened up substantial lead on the respective category's national champion. Compton gets a ton of press, that comes with the wins!

Truth is, Georgia races Georgia Gould and the race course. She has given 100% to every race she is in, that is just the way she is. That goes back years ago when she raced her first 24 hour race in Moab, UT., placing in the top three. She was on our fit then also.

She is just learning how important it is to get the hole shot and then maintain the pace. We know she has the power and can maintain a fast smooth pace, as she can hang on the the pace of the leaders. She has being working on her sprint.

"I just tried to be smooth," said Gould, who made a major impression on the mountain-bike world this year by sweeping the NMBS cross-country series. "I try to base my races on how I feel, and not on how other people feel. In these kinds of conditions it's easy to make mistakes. At one point Katie was about 10 seconds ahead of me, and I just focused on staying smooth."

Racing is a hard game. Ask Shonny Vanlandingham who was sick early this year. You have to have all the stars right to have a good season. That means you have to have your health also. Good legs vs. bad legs? Results are results!

She is just getting faster as she learns! Is that not how we all learn? Georgia doesn't have time on the track like sprinter Katie Compton had, but she is learning fast!

With the win, Gould has the overall series title locked up, with 230 points to Sydor's 158. Even if Sydor won on Sunday and Gould did not finish, Gould's 230 points would outweigh Sydor's potential 208. Because Compton skipped the middle round of USGP competition to compete in Europe, she is out of the running for the overall competition.
