Wow!! Way to Go Dan Martin!

Alot of people would have called Dan's victory at the historic Cat's Hill criterium (Pro,1,2) this past weekend an upset. It was no upset. Dan works hard, plans his season with great detail and tracks his progress with regular performance testing. That is why to those who know and work with him, it was no upset. Congrats Dan on a victory that makes it all worthwhile. You deserve it!

Camp Alert: Two spots remain for this week's 4 day camp

While climbing one of the many hills at a recent 4 day camp, one of the athletes remarked, "I love the climbs in this area!". I responded with "And what do you like about them?" He responded, "They are the perfect length to improve my climbing skills and the view at the top of the Sierras!!"

Only a couple spots remain to be able to climb in the foothills for next week's 4 day camp starting Thursday May 10th. We begin the camp with performance testing, bike fitting and medical assessment at UC Davis Sports Performance. If you wish to sign up, email or call AthletiCamps:

Hope to climb with you next week!
