This week I reached an agreement with Racermate, makers of Computrainer, for sponsorship starting in 2012. Iâ€™ve been training on a Computrainer for a couple of years now, so the partnership is a natural fit. The hard work thatâ€™s taken me from an average cyclist to Hy-Vee prime winning cyclist has been overwhelmingly indoors on a Computrainer. In the past Iâ€™ve used only the basic functions of the Computrainer, but Iâ€™m looking forward to working with Raermate to laern how to use features like Spinscan pedal stroke analysis, real course simulations, and customized workouts. By maximizing my use of indoor power training Iâ€™m hoping I can reach a new level of cycling ability next year. Booyah!
