Great to play with the CX tribe at the opening NCCX series weekend. Courses were 👊. Competition in the P/1/2 races was 💪. My performance was 🤦♂️, but I managed to match my @defeet socks to my @sycamorecycles Bike, the @hincapiesports skin suit was looking sharp, and the 🇺🇸 @handupgloves were pointing the way. Instead of “fake it till you make it” I’m gonna “fake it and then make it” this season. .

Really excited about a new partnership with Liz and @blue.ridge.biomechanics. Bike fitting is all about making an asymmetrical person fit a symmetrical bike, and I’ll admit, sometimes there are solutions beyond my skill set. Liz taught me some stuff that is really easy to incorporate into what I do, and I showed her what I can do. What I really like about Liz and her program is that she wants to see you as little as possible! Her and I both want to get you sorted out, and back to doing your sport, instead of spending all your time in the office in pain. Hit up either of us if something doesn’t feel right!
My athlete Jim has had an awesome season and I couldn’t be more proud of him. Amazing job this season Jim, and way to cap it off with a state championship! Kudos! #ctsathlete#ctsbrevard @cts_trainright #bettercoaching
Getting lots of race reports from all my athletes in their first cyclocross races of the year. Super pumped for Allison Hunt @ahunt27 grabbing the top step at Cannonball Cyclocross Race in Iowa. She’s been working hard all summer to be ready for races this month! .
Proud to have 3 of the team racing the Mountain Bike National Championships at Snowshoe WV this week. @mchamp_88 and @iamjoshwhitmore in masters categories and @tcowie16 in the pro race. .
Join us on Thursday for a TDF stage 12 viewing party at the CTS Brevard office, 5:30-9pm. We’ll have appetizers and prizes to give away. BYOB. Drop in any time. The Alpe d huez is sure to be exciting! Find the event on Facebook to RSVP so we can get enough food. See you there! .
Another Mars Hill U. junior cycling camp in the books. So much fun taking these kids out on the open roads, teaching some skills, and playing garbage ball. On Thursday we took the bunch to Mt Pisgah and for 7 years running all of them made it to the highest point of the camp on their own power.

Missão Haute Route Asheville concluída com sucesso! Diferente de ontem, hoje tive um dia excelente e me surpreendi com um 4º lugar! Queria agradecer ao meu treinador @colinizzard que garantiu a diversão e a velocidade do nosso pelotão!
Foram os últimos dois dias de uma semana de endurance, com mais de 20h de pedal e muita “Z3” (aquele ritmo perto/abaixo do limiar). Arrasta a tela pra ver o vídeo que fiz na chegada 😊👉🏼
Mission @hauteroute_na Asheville accomplished successfully. Today ended up the opposite of yesterday, and surprised myself with a 4th place os a packed women’s field. Thank you Colin and @cts_trainright crew and riders for making today such a fun fast painful and enjoyable day. These were the last two days of an endurance week with 20+ hours on the bike - I am very happy to have earned a couple of recovery days 😁
$300 coffee grinder at work saved from the landfill after critical component failure required modifications and replacement. #newswitchday the #ctsbrevard office runs on coffee during training camps. All in a day’s work.
Great day out with Mick and Charles! Couldn’t ask for better February weather. Got up onto the Parkway for the first time this year and she’s as perfect and pretty as ever. 🙂 Also had a very “head-skratching” sighting of an @skratchlabs fan...
We hosted the start of the “Asheville Winter Bike League” group rides today at the Brevard office. 152 people showed up, split up into 4 different groups. @idaphevents is doing a fantastic job organizing this series. Long live group rides! .
Early morning flight to inaugural @cts_trainright #figfondo and shenanigans are already happening.
1. @colinizzard kidnapped the woman sitting next to him.
2. @reidbeloni randomly busts out his “neck-pillow hoodie” and shares w/ Colin to further the comedy. 😬
It’s going to be a fun weekend!
Congrats to #ctsathlete Kevin Egan (@kme72) on winning his category at NC Cyclocross Series in Lenoir. He’s been putting in the hard work and hovering near the front of races so far, finally got the breakthrough performance he was looking for! .
