Transition Camp a Huge Success!

This year's Transition camp was a great experience for all involved. Here's the Reader's Digest version of a great week:
  • Day 1 - Meet and greet in the comfortable Rocklin Park Hotel (, which is our host hotel for all camps.

  • Day 2 - Performance testing, bike fitting, pedal analysis, and health check at UC Davis Sports Performance. What a great experience for the athletes! A day filled with an incredible amount of information.

  • Day 3 - 3.5 hour ride in the lower foothills north of Lincoln. Traffic = zero!

  • Day 4 - 4 hour ride in the foothills towards Auburn and Meadow Vista

  • Day 5 - 5 hour ride thru the Tahoe National Forest and some of the most incredible scenery in this part of California (see picture below)

  • Day 6 - Short 2 hour ride with an emphasis on workouts and recovery tips.

Dinners every night at local restuarants that are known bythe locals, as they are hidden away in small foothill towns....Great technical support....Nutrition...Training program development....and a great persentation given by Dr. Rob Schott, a local cardiologist/bike racer, who gave us a presentation on the health benefits of an good cycling training program.

Wow! What a week!

We hope to see you soon!

Only a Couple Spots Remain for the last Weekend Camp of 2007 - November 3rd - 4th

For those cyclists who have limited time, but who still desire to improve, AthletiCamps offers a number of weekend camps throughout the year. These two-day camps are focused on determining your individual heart rate training zones through a true lactate threshold test. You will gain a clear understanding of what these results mean and learn how to apply them to specific cycling workouts.

Space is limited - Contact AthletiCamps today to sign up!

AthletiCamps Wins the Iowa Hill Time Trail

Every September, the Iowa Hill time trial dominates the Auburn area cycling scene. Iowa Hill is a small town outside of Colfax in the foothills on the way to Lake Tahoe. The hill that "guards" this small town is like a shark infested moat that surrounds a medival castle: 1.75 miles at 14.5%. There are switchbacks so steep, that when driving up the road in a car, you can't even see over the hood!

This year, Susan Lannoo won the women's division with an incredible time of 16:33! Congrats to Susan. She worked very hard in preparation for the event and looks forward to the challenge again next year.
