Compton Raising the Bar for Luna and Others!

Compton is flexing her muscles in racing in Wisconsin

September 26, Elite women: Madison, Wisconsin

Planet Bike's Katie Compton has to make her sponsors proud! Her efforts are going to turn up the speed in the 2009 season. This is going to be fun to keep up on! A close battle is what sport is all about. It also allows us to find understanding needs for cyclocross bike setups. You have to be on your toes, it's going to be a good shoot out.

We have been pointing out to Georgia Gould and Sue Butler how important it is to accelerate from the start and the turns. Their bikes are set up to grab a hand full and do that. It requires practice! Compton's track history is serving her well.

Compton "I'm working on accelerating hard out of the turns and going fast up the run-ups and over the barriers. I have to be able to do those fast for the World Cups."
