Super6 Weekend for Team Monavie-Cannondale

Supersix Weekend

Without any mountain bike races scheduled over Easter Weekend, Team Monavie-Cannondale saddled up the Supersix’s and got after some road races in various Regions across the country.

West Virginia/Pennsylvania:

Jeremiah Bishop found a way to make a hard road race even harder. Chase solo for 12 miles, hit a dog  head on (this is normal in West Virgina), catch the 2 man break, and then attack it 2 miles out for the win. There’s got to be an easier way!

 Durango, Colorado:

As reigning Collegiate National Mountain Bike Champion, Ben Sontagg is a marked man at any collegiate race. Upon return from South Africa andthe grueling Cape Epic, Ben foundthe Fort Lewis College home road race a perfect opportunity to wind up the legs in preparation for the big show at Sea Otter. In the snowy Criterium Ben was watched closely,  nipped at the line., and had to settle for 2nd. The following day was a more selective course where Ben was able to use his raw power and drag race up a 10% grade to the finish with enough time to celebrate the win . Looks like he’s ready for the Otter!


Tooele, Utah:

Mitchel Petersen, who is known as a road  hill climb specialist decided to line up for the pan flat Tour of the Depot Stage Race in Tooele, Utah. In his support was Team Director Matt Ohran,who after a 3 year hiatus from road racing nearly stole the show on the final stage. Matt worked himself into a 2 man break with Kai Applequist (Team Bobs-Bicycles.com), a new pro from Boise, ID for 35 miles from the finish and hung on to the end, once again leading by example. That's right, WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish does the fits for both teams! Mitchel then blew the field apart in the final miles to finish 3rd. 

If you wish to stay in the game, you best not wear out! You might say that  Dr. Gillespie knows more "truth" about what we do, he has been using WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish for a number of years, staying at the top of his game, the whole time as a professional in PT. He knows what we he has learned from the sEMG /Dartfish and how important it is to do it "free from error" and will not depart to other fitting or conforming social opinions! Bart is now a Dr. of PT and also an instructor at the University of Utah in the Division of Physical Therapy. Bart has used & worked with us since the days when his teammate, multi Dr. Exercise/Phys Sally Warner (Team Biogen) took the 2002 World MTB Masters using WN CAD/sEMG!  Sally being a person of science saw first hand how (using her brain) to fire her own muscles, not what someone else thinks is key! That made the difference!

Not bad for a Mountain Bike Team!
