Training Seminar

Please join us for a training event on January 14th at Cyclemania, 6:00pm.

Marianne Stover and Erin Brennan will share some of their training knowledge for the off season. Some items discussed during this event will be:

  • general discussion on winter training including purpose, establishing goals, different base periods and their roles.
  • sample workouts based on type of riding (racing early season, charity rides, improving general fitness)
  • handout of sample workouts
  • quick demo on the different workouts and how they are done (types of intervals, cadence, etc.)
  • simple methods for establishing heartrate zones

For those of you who don’t know Marianne, she is an accomplished mountain bike racer, road and cyclo-cross racer, including winning a ‘cross national title and this year’s Maine Time Trial Series.

She is an outstanding triathlete winning several Maine State Time Trial series as well at countless triathlons, placing within the top 5 of many 1/2 Ironman events throughout the Northeast, and has had a long standing All American ranking. Erin also starting racing cyclocross this year and found herself on the podium at several events.
