Rebecca Rusch - 2nd World 24 hour Championships

Fitting systems have been slow to gain momentum from very basic ideas, or using some watts recording device, bike stores don't want to perform the service (they say it takes too long, no space), they just want to sell bikes. Store owners/people don't understand how important it is, and who cares if you don't play at your best!  We got your money by a sell and who cares if you have a score of 120 on a par 72 course!

Major bike makers are just getting into the fray and we feel that will certainly help get things moving forward into the 21st century.  Again, they are going to have their own ideas and for the most part that includes their product of design, they want you to buy their goods! 

We don't push one bike over another!  We take what ever bike (if they give you bikes each year) or you buy then next best thing each fall.  You are the motor and you have to learn, there is no sliver-bullet! 

Think about it,  you get your custom clubs made to fit you, but you still have to swing the clubs! And if you have a bad swing, the ball is not going to do what you want it to do, nor with your custom made skis that are dialed, you still have to learn to turn them. After we perform your fit, we teach you what really makes a difference in power and handling.  Understand looking at watts only is only the sum of your effort, not what muscle is doing what or your best moves like the chain of your bike.  Your are a human-linked chain.

That is why people like Rebecca Rusch use our fit over the others?  They get their best results!
Sure there are many ways to swing the club (pedal), but at the end of the game, it's your score, or your results that is the end all. Are you getting the most of each pedal stroke?  Seems like many are not with what ever fit they have.

The 2008 24 hours of Adrenalin World Solo Championships in Canmore, Canada is history books and our gal Rebecca Rusch has made her statement again.

I think we all agree, it would be cool to have any world championship in anything. What ever you do, what ever game or event, what ever what size, to take the world championship means perhaps the best of the best in that game/big show to fight to be the best.

It's a real test of the pecking order. Only dominant players line up side-by-side, purely to intimidate the other, flashing their rides, kits, etc... These are the heavy hitters and the action is going to be real. Tactics & equipment makes a difference!

Since we live in Idaho, we got word that Rebecca was feeling very good a few days before the race and was up for the event from her coach Matthew White. White use to race with Rebecca and lives in Boise, ID., so we saw him on his bike, on his way to his job.

To take one of these races, it helps to have all thing in order, perhaps that is why she has stuck with Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish for her fit solution. It's one thing to ride at race pace, and another thing to do if for 24 hours, so you want everything where it needs to be!

To perform well, you need good support, so you can focus on the race. You need people who can deal with the many unseen battles of the war.

In war, there are many soldiers that don't always obtain credit. With that, a pit crew with people who can problem solve fast is key. She has that support with Jason Bauer., head mech., from George's in Boise, ID. Jason has works like a professional engineer (attention to details) and on many bikes of the top racers in the world, and even works on world tt champion's Kristin Armstrong's road bikes once in a while.

So here is the story! The women's event was won by reigning world champion Rebecca Rusch (Specialized). She is super tough and remarked on the toughness of the hilly Canmore course. If she noted on the toughness of a course, it was tough!

"That was the hardest course I have ever done"

Rebecca is the real deal and she can take "rain and the cold" as she headed a race team "Team Montrail", for years doing adventure races where they can sometimes stay up for days on end in rain, snow, cold, etc...  Legendarily, very fit, she has spent a decade as on of the world's top adventure racers,  Rebecca has made use of her improved bike handling skills!

Two time 24 Hour World Champion.

We help people reach their dreams!  What is it you want to do?

MTB World Cup XC #6 Georgia Gould 4th!

We can now say that Georgia Gould is among the elite in cross country racing the who is who in the world. She has stayed focus to cut lap times down to race the elite women's field and she has a very real chance at the games.

Premont did solo to win at home with Georgia's teammate Catherine Pendrel riding to 2nd. Georgia knows what her teammate can and can't do so that gives her ideas on what she needs to do at the games.

Georgia just had her best World Cup performance yet, a 4th place at Mont Sainte Anne, Canada and passed Gunn-Rita Dahie Flesjaa, as they rounded out the podium. This is huge for her mind as the games will start in only a few weeks.

She she ready!

Mt. Snow, Vermont in the Heat!

Some of the best racing you will every see!

After a long week in the heat, elite women short track heated up more with cyclo-cross hot rod Katie Compton setting a hot pace to a considerable lead. Mary McConneloug took 2nd and Lea Davison in 3rd.

"Riding in the heat is really hard," said Compton. " Cross is easier for me because it's colder and I do better in colder temperatures. The same holds true for Georgia Gould and many others. Georgia was even disabled by heat this season at Santa Ynez, CA. These gals make some real power (heat) and give it their all in every race! They push it to the limits!

Many of the normal top racers seemed fatigued as a result of the long, hot cross country race on Saturday. Georgia Gould (Luna) and Heather Irmiger (Gary Fisher/Subaru) had made massive efforts during the cross country event appeared to be off their normal pace.

McConneloug realized that neither Davison or Gould were going to shut down the gap on lap third lap. Compton had a 200 foot gap by lap four, but McConneloug seemed to be closing it down. Davison, Sue Butler (Mona Vie), and Willow Koerber (Gary Fisher/Suburu) were all chasing hard behind.

Jeremiah Bishop takes his 2nd "Stars & Stripes" in 2008

A lot of people want a "Sliver Bullet", but let it be known, it can take years to rise to the top.  Is the Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish a "Sliver Bullet" for them  to take aa local race or a national championship?  We don't think so, but there seems to be a "trend" with so many  national championships coming from people we have worked with. 

No "Sliver Bullet", you do your homework and earn your keep!  However, as in any school subject, y0u need to know what homework to work on!  And we can show you!  That's what makes a difference.

This might be the best form of Jeremiah's racing years!  He looks to be in the best form of his life.  Even with the power he has, Jeremiah is also getting smarter and has learned to let others close gaps as he races the best of the best.  

USA cycling mtb championships in Mt. Snow, Vermont saw some red hot racing this past weekend and we saw two national champions in both men and women.  You never know in racing what will happen. And one of the "red hots" was Jeremiah Bishop (Trek/VW) winning the national short track title with the country's best short track racers.

Jeremiah also won the USA National Marathon Championship two weeks ago in the high country of Breckinridge, Colorado.

Olympians battled neck to neck in Mount Snow!

Georgia Gould and Mary McConneloug are our two best mtb racers and they are both heading to Beijing in August.  They just put on nose to nose (neck to neck) mud puddle to mud puddle race to the end.   It seems that they both learned from the race!

The race ended with Mary McConneloug by a mud puddle, a neck, or a nose, taking the 2008 national cross-country title.  The Olympians opened a huge gap on the field, including fast company like Katie Compton all the way to the end.

McConeloug has a history at Mount Snow - she has won the last four major xc races held at the Vermont ski area.

Good for Georgia Gould taking second and learning a few things about gears for passing.  She has been so use to riding solo to a win!  Georgia said Mary kept her at bay on the straights and had no place to pass. Too big of a gear and not use to having to do this?  When she went for the drag race at the end, Georgia pointed out that she was in too big of a gear and could not "wind-it-up" to get overtake McConneloug.  

Wind-up is a very important part of the game when you are neck to neck.  She will not make that mistake the next time!

Congrats to them both for a good race.  Good stuff for both of them, as it is going to be a real battle in Beijing with the rest of the world.

Old News, But Good News! Jeff Louder 2nd at Cascade Classic!

I just fit Jeff Louder's (BMC) dad Ken Louder from Salt Lake City, UT. Ken is up here for the Wells Fargo Twilight Criterium in Boise, ID this weekend. This is his 3rd bike fit, and this was on his new R3 SL.

"Racers won't use anything that doesn't improve their game."

Ken is an interesting story!  He has spent much time in the wind tunnels before he came to us to get his road, tt fit.  For the most, Ken understands the factors governing your performance capacity. He is a student of the sport. Technique, coordination, will-power, motivation, concentration are all needed if you want to get to then next zip code.

As I watched Ken address the bike, I noted that he was doing everything the way we taught him a year ago!  So I asked.  Ken, you have been on the fit for a year now, has  the bike fit made a difference for you since a year ago?

As Jeff Hopkins was standing there with his teammates, Ken looked me directly in the eyes and pointed out that he has placed 2nd, 3rd, and 3rd at the highest level his class.  Now Ken wants to use Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish in SLC, UT and pointed out that he will be here in the fall to train!  Jeff Hopkins was even asking about doing fits after his pro racing.

Why use our methods?  Because it works!  It gets results!

We have been so busy, I didn't take note that Ken's  son Jeff Louder who was fitted by Craig Upton Wobble-naught dealer took 2nd Bend, OR., just behind Levi Leipheimer (Astana).

No it is not the Tour de France, but that is a good showing! And he is not on some new EPO! When are those guys ever going to learn?

Ken said Jeff was tested twice in the same day just the other day when he was home.

Short track car races are action packed! So are bikes! Check this out!

It is well known that short track racing in cars is a blast, with tons of action. Its pedal to the metal in these types of races. You never know who is going to win! The same action took place in NY State with XC cycling.

Look at the times! Good stuff! Good racing! Go see one of these events! It is worth you time!

Georgia Gould is back on top in NMBS East Coast National!

A physiological background is not some new high-tech. Different sports make differing demands on the athlete. Cycling is greatly dependent upon the body's ability to utilize O2 in working muscles.  But at times we also need anaerobic breakdown processes in the absence of O2.  Some where in the middle is perhaps the best blend of both for cycling.

There is no "Sliver Bullet", this is hard mental work.  Sport physiology, for the most part started in 1965  by the Swedish about the requirements of top-class human work-machine.  It started in sport back in the day of Swedish stars, such as Ingemar Stenmark and top skiers.

Let's see that is 43 years ago. Even in that day, biochemical and advanced telemetry techniques where used to research.  Even Swedish companies supported the studies and economic grants and as my good friend, Ron Sargent who coached the top US Women said used "Precision" to obtain better results.

Not so in the USA, as anything goes, more about marketing than precision.  The industry just wanted to get you in the door and move bikes.  Who cares how you ride, they only wanted your money.  They are not in the teaching game, they don't have time for that.  They only hype what they have been told.

"All they know is what they heard".  Just follow the heard and do what they do!   

Want to find out if something works? Want to find something that works better than the older followed ideas?  Then you take it to the races!  Take the national championships one year and you don't know who will be on top the next.  They might even be on a team.

Demand analysis lead to the newer trends, new requirements of top-class racers determining a better way of doing things and oh yes, that info goes with them  to other sources for others to copy.  The objective of the analysis is to attempt to identify gains with respect to knowledge about man as a work-machine.  New knowledge frequently leads to new techniques and methods.  Understand, there is no family in this game, you never know who your friends/family is from one year to the next.  Best get use to that!  And you best have some thick skin and be a fighter.  Someone is going to be gunning for you, and that is the nature of sport. 

This is not a easy!  You work hard and play even harder and someone out there wants your head.  This is like NASCAR, it might take you 9 years to get to the top and then you have a star jump and go to anther team e.g. Joe Gibbs racing w/ 450 people on the payroll and then their "learned star", Tony Stewart's decides to move on, after 9 years. Ouch!

That has happen to us more than we can count, and from the top teams in the game  as many had the money (support) pulled (legs cut) from them e.g. Team Lipton and Boise's, hard working star Kristin Armstrong who took Cascade Road Race just today, and no question is making her mark in the sport.  Other teams like  7UP/Nutra Fig when they beat Lance Armstrong in races at San Fran, CA.  The list goes on e.g. Subway, Navigators, A&F, private racers and even at the college level taking national championship teams Fort Lewis College to the top. 

You learn very fast that things do change and you have to keep the passion to take your info to another level.  You have to be driven to take on the world.  We have the data to back up who we have worked with, a kind of "blueprint" of them and they are many of the best in the world at what they do (road, tt, tri, track, mtb).

Factors governing performance capacity goes like this.  Performance capacity, actually consists of the following sub-functions:

1) Energy-yielding processes.
2) Muscular strength (both maximal strength & endurance).
3) Technique and coordination in regards to the correct bike fit needs.
4) Psychological factors, such as will-power, motivation, concentration, etc...

Joe Gibbs said it best "In the elite sport, things change fast and you have to pull up your boots and work harder than ever to stay in the top, or even to just be in the game".  You have to work harder, to unveil more performance because you might be teaching the very person who wants to turn around and challenge you!  They learn what you do and then use that info against you!  So if you don't come up with something better you will go away!

Georgia Gould  just proved she's back in top form and that she can work hard.  The spring European campaign is very taxing, but she had to go to get the UCI points!  She just rode solo again on our solutions to win in the XC race at the NMBS in Windham, NY.  Her team-mates Catherine Pendrel & Katerina Nash finished 2nd, 3rd.

Jeremiah Bishop takes 3rd only 0,19 off the finish!

But there is more!  There are others who are working very hard.

Pua Sawicki who is one of our 24 hour female pro just took 4th.  Pua is morphing into something else and getting faster every race, every phone call, email and even on the short track.  She has really done her homework and what makes a difference. 

Then we had Steve Neal's gals,  Michal Dyck taking 6th and Emily Batty 8th and came Lea Davison who  finished 10th, Sue Butler 15th, and Chloe Forsman 16th.

"RESULTS" and 6 of the top 10.

We can't claim anything, but we can show you a good "TREND".

Perhaps we should claim "The Ultimate Driving Machine Lies Within Your Skin".

Independence/Firecracker 50 - Jeremiah Bishop "USA Nat. Marathon Winner 2008"

We take great pride and celebrate the "independence " of many things around July 4th.
Independence is what makes our country what it is.

The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do - Walter Bagehot

Jeremiah Bishop is well known for his independence in the mtb industry. He will not use anything that's doesn't work to improve his game.

Perhaps the best "independence of day's " of say "old ways vs. new". How could the contributor's recognized authorities, the scientific adviser's of the past, not have known of the drugs used? Many hold degrees in the biological sciences. People who specialized in musculoskeletal practices, metabolism during exercise, biochemistry, and with peer-reviewed journals, working with pro teams?

We don't follow old paths, old leaders, or the drugs to get more performance, rather we used a systematic attempt to establish theories to explain observed phenomena and the knowledge obtained through our efforts.

We are independent of those who say we are not science based? We can measure a number of variables in a semi-laboratory situation that can give us an indication of some one's abilities to perform in different disciplines. This can be helpful to define weaknesses on which you need to work to obtain success.

In other words "Science". Part pure science for the sake of obtaining new knowledge and then applied science, or the practical application of scientific theory and laws.

First applied science on road is Mark Hekman. We have changed his understanding!

2008 USA Crits Series
Race 5 - July 5: Iron Hill Twilight Crit, West Chester, Pennsylvania

Toshiba-Santo strongman Mark Hekman has once again found the form he displayed in 2007, by winning Saturday’s 4th annual Iron Hill Twilight Criterium in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Hekman, who held the lead the 2007 USA Crits Series until a crash at Downers Grove ended his pursuit of the title, lapped this year’s Iron Hill field with 20 laps remaining in the race.
"I got away on the 10th lap and just crushed

Just as in any other sport, things change, but only slowly as many only follow rulers of the day. Only time proven resuts will change things. It will always be that way!

Results of experiments are observed, and conclusions are drawn from observed "results". The conclusions may tend to uphold or to refute the hypothesis only with time (1999-2008). At the start, the team of engineers, PhD's, PT's, PA's, biomechanics instrumentation and research, wind-tunnels has been tested and has for many provided racer's with success at the highest level in the world in all cycling games as in this weekend.

It took our team of engineers, PT's, PA's, PhD's and their "independence" of the old ways, 2 1/2 years to develop our precision ft solution software just for mtb and then another 2 years for road bikes working hand-and-hand with world-class competitors Kendra and Rene Wenzel who raced at top levels of international competition. Providing real feedback, at the highest level from racers across the world.

From the start, there have been many who struggled with our "independence", our science based methods, who said we can't do that! There are many who still think that way, as they are antagonist and compete for our customers. We wish them well. but it is the 21 Century and software is here to stay, we are sorry it makes them uncomfortable, perhaps their independence of something that works, that makes a difference.

It was our "independence" that pulled high-tech into the game of cycling for others to follow. Just now are we hearing that the majors are attempting to understand more about human movement over mass production.

Independence means we really don't follow! We where the first online in 1999, to use CAD , the first to use lasers, and many other high-tech that has since been only copied. e.g. Dartfish to teach you more truth after the fit.

Our focus of "independence" was a close look at what is needed (biomechanical principles) to get the essential basics for the mtb and road, allowing the human to hone their skills and get the most out of each race/ride. We have used the very best tools, lasers, forceplates, sEMG, powermeters, time proven to make people make more watts! Computer analysis of biomechanics data/instrumentation has made a difference!

This past weekend more "independence - success" came to a few of the racers in the high country of Colo. There energy needs are truly taxed, as very high and large amounts of energy are the key to sustain outputs. Ideas are put to the test!

You can have a very powerful car engine, but if you don't get the O2 e.g. turbo, it will not run well. At this elevation, you would do best with perhaps a "blower" for the best gases exchange within the lungs. But then you have to think about the cellular level of gas exchange.

The breathing cycle - the ventilatory cycle consisting of an inspiration followed by the expiration of a volume of gas called the tidal volume.

The breathing work, the energy required for breathing movements (respiratory muscles) and the volume of air moved during a breathing cycle becomes key "Rocky Mt. High". So if your upper body is off, the breathing muscles don't work at their best, so is the breathing work!

The likelihood of running out of fuel (fat, carbohydrate, and protein) is really tested here. You can have many ideas on fits on the roads, flats, riding in a group, etc... You can get someone to pull you! But here, it is you against the lack of air, and the playground. You have to have the perfect balance of things.

Most of our racers don't run out fuel, plus they get the key (O2) needed for potential work. These processes differ in the amount of oxygen required and also the rates at which they can generate energy for ATP synthesise.

There is very little you can do for preparing for one-day races at this elevation. In these situations an individuals ability to generate maximal, sustainable power to overcome resistance plays a key role in determining success.

No matter your strategy, the physiological demands are at the highest level when you do these races. Fatigue during prolonged strenuous events at elevation determine if you can even get the O2 you need to

Jeremiah always does well at these high elevation races and has the track record to back it up.
We got a email from Pua, who took off the front, only to have a crash on a downhill section, so she DNF. 24 Hour World Champion Rebecca Rusch took 5th place in the event.

Candy Hartman to wobble show details 12:17 PM

Hi! This isn't quite as exciting as the other comments you get on clients winning races and such but on June 28th we did the RATPOD ride in Dillon, MT. It was 130 miles with nearly 6000 feet of climbing. We finished much quicker than we expected and felt great the whole day (and the day after!) We know that had it not been for you fitting both of our bikes in the past year the results would not have been the same. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy riding!!

There is a old saying! "Don't count your... until they

There is an old saying! And the older I get the more I understand these things!

People will say things before it happens!

With the ease of Internet and all the info out there it can be hard to make sense of it all.
With that, we can't claim that every egg is a "good egg", so we just count after the hatch!

"Don't count your chickens until they hatch"

Georgia Gould is "good egg" and she is going to the games in mtb.

We are also very pleased that Boise, ID pro Kristin Armstrong is also going to the games!

Both gals more or less started racing roads and trails in Idaho and both have made their marks in the world. They have worked very long and hard and earned the right to rep the USA in the upcoming games!

That is cool!

Mona Vie Cannondale take opening stage in BC, Canada!

If you live in the intermountain west you know who these guys are!  They are leading over 400 other riders in the multi-stage mtb event from Victoria to Whistler

Long time WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish PhD. PT Bart Gillespie and teammate Jason Sager "Team Daddy" put down a very fast pace to take the lead as things heat up. Can you say a tough act to follow!   

Nat Ross and his teammate Chris Beck sit in 6th place are not far behind!
