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.
