race roundup 20thNov2016

Last weekend saw Julian try to better the Abbey Dash performance in the hope of better weather, didn’t quite come off but still did a 33.20 at Chester 10k.  New athlete Ian ran 37:25 for a pb at Chester also.   Peter had a nice jog round the Gower Ultra 28miler in 6:39 trying to help a mate get CCC points.

This week Helen was representing GB for the police at the XC and paced 4th, to help GB win the team prize.

Another 4th place for Luke in testing conditions at the Tour of Pendle this weekend, not bad for a benchmark run with no real prep work!

This course is designed specifically for healthcare practitioners, scientists, therapists and coaches whom are looking to develop their holistic management of cycling related pathologies.

  • Basic anatomy and cycling biomechanics
  • Subjective and objective assessment skills
  • Common cycling injuries and their management strategies
  • Clinically reasoning bike fit
  • Current trends in cycling/bike fit
  • Case studies
