    ANT is an ultra-low power (ULP) wireless protocol for sending information wirelessly from one device to another, so that your phone, bike computer, heart rate monitor, power meter and other training devices can talk to each other and allow technology to make your cycling (and life) better than ever. But how does it work?

    What is the hardest part of a training session? The first step out of the door. In the Northern Hemisphere, winter is drawing in, the temperature is dropping and many cyclists are summoning the willpower to hit the roads or face the drudgery of the home-trainer.

    Pro riders have a unique and graceful style that clearly distinguishes them from amateurs and recreational cyclists. Is this difference something to do with their pedaling stroke and technique? And if so, is it something that we can train to improve our own cycling?

    As the 2016 event season is winding down (or has become a distant memory), a natural and necessary transition begins to happen toward 2017. This time of transition provides cyclists (from enthusiasts to experienced racers, from development riders to masters) the opportunity to review, establish, and/or reinvent the process to having a successful 2017 campaign.

    It’s a razor-thin line that we as athletes walk between being extremely lean and fit on the one edge, and the precipice of overtraining and increased risk of infections and illness on the other. With flu season upon us, what should we be considering about maintaining our off-season health?

    I’m 50 years old, and I wanna go faster! There, I said it. This happens to me every fall; it’s something about the cool night air, changing colors, and Sunday night football. I start thinking about next year and planning ways to get faster. I love it.

    “Analytics” is the buzzword in many sports today, involved new ways of analyzing player effectiveness and team performance in dynamic team sports like baseball, football, and hockey. While power analysis now dominates training ideas in cycling, can we use analytics in cycling and especially in sprinting?

    These are great days! The cool fall weather and disappearing sun always bring back fun rides that define many seasons past. What can you do with rides during the fall to improve for 2017?

    An annual season review process builds consistency in identifying performance limiters and reveals areas of improvement needed in an annual training plan. The first step is to analyze your racing data. The second step is to go through your overall training data. Here are examples of some things to look for to improve for 2017.

    A season review is a vital learning tool for athletes who want to consistently improve their performance. Why? When you know and can access the strengths and weaknesses of your annual racing performance and the training that supported it, you can use the knowledge gained from them to improve your plan for next year.

    Hard day, easy day, repeat. Most athletes are familiar with the core tenant of periodized training. The concept is often lost when it comes time to apply it to the bigger training picture. The need for a recovery phase following the 'hard ' part of the season is often over looked, undervalued and misunderstood.

    Road racers rejoice! The season is coming to a well earned finale for most of the World and it’s time for a tasty beverage, a big couch, and a slice or two of pizza! Or is it? Should you take a break or keep your foot on the gas? Let’s weigh the arguments...

    Don’t start in a hole! Cyclocross is great fun and makes for some excellent fall training, but be careful and smartly manage your fatigue if you just completed a full season of road or MTB racing.

    Face it: cross hurts! Not only does it require strong mental and physical toughness, it also requires a rider to be able to implement both skills and tactics while going full gas. This means we need some highly specific training with lots of time spent focused in the high intensity range.

    As the trend towards eating more real foods on the bike grows, I hear more and more questions about eating raw nuts, bars made with bacon and cheese or nut butters while racing or training. Let’s look to clarify why the average bike racer (not extreme ultra endurance events lasting over 15 hours) should not rely on fats as fuel during and immediately prior to competition.

    Ask a coach about “winning” and he might cite threshold power, great tactical acumen, or the importance of a strong team; each an important element without question, but what else goes into the equation? In the end it often comes down to mental focus and the ability to sort out the irrelevant.

    Summer is the season of big rides for both pros and amateur cyclists alike. How does one fuel these big efforts, and how good are we at maintaining energy balance throughout multiple days of hard riding?

    Think back to your last experience of competition. Perhaps it was a race, or simply a sprint for a local town sign. How did you perform? More importantly, how did you explain your performance?

    TOOLBOX: It’s hot, it’s humid, and you’re getting tired. Each August I'm reminded that my athletes have been training for eight to nine months now, and August is usually the final, challenging phase. We all face the challenges of heat, humidity, fatigue, and lower motivation, forcing us to reach deep and finish the season with style.
