Ok, I'll admit it, I'm tired! This has been a long and great year of bicycle racing. and we have had many milestones met and goals achieved by C3 athletes. As we look forward it is always good to look back.
We had athletes who followed the training plans to the tee, make solid progress throughout the year as planned, and they had fantastic performances, attained personal best times, earned medals at nationals and achieved personal goals. This year we also had athletes that had a great pre-season that probably relaxed too much as the season started, leading to panic workouts later in the year. But, performances for these folks were solid, not what they wanted, but solid never the less. Once again, I can say, 'live and learn'. We will adjust.
Next year for Coach Carl Cycling, if I can ever recover from this year, will be bigger and better, but more focused. We will cast a bigger net to make people aware of what is possible in racing bicycles while working more with individual, not group, goals.
