I just started working with Lezlie Smith from west Texas. One of her goals for the year is to beat her PR for a 40K TT. Her current PR is 59:45. That's a time that many young guys would consider toufh to beat!

A great Weekend for coached athletes

The weekend Started off well for my coached athletes, with Grant Sample winning the cat 4 TT and the cyclovets omnium road race in San Diego . It's a good thing Grant gave it his all, as the winning margin was only one second! James Warden also did a great job in the cat 5 race finishing 4 th place.
Saturday went also went well when Jason Montour made the podium with a 3rd place finish in the cat 4 cyclovets omnium road race, and Grant held on for 8th place, goodenough for second place overall.

Sunday was a day for the fast men with racers entered in criteriums in Texas and California.
Grant Sample, and Jason M. James W had pack finishes in the crits, but their previous results were good enough get Grant and Jason 3rdand 5th overall for the stage race, and James' result gave him an 11th overall in his category.

Joseph LaCour finished 7th in the p/1/2/3 category in the James bailey memorial criterium in Texas(~ 100 F heat). This is Joe's first season as a cat 2. I've coached him since he was a cat 5, and it's really rewarding to see him doing so well. And last but not least is Trey Buck, also racing the crit in Texas, who got a 5th place in the cat 5 race.
