The Sweat Rate Formula | How to Calculate Your Sweat Rate

Monday, July 13, 2015 3:24:40 PM America/New_York

Every athlete should know how much they sweat in order to have a hydration target. The goal is to see exactly how much dehydration you incur during your workout and in turn, determine your hourly fluid replacement (how much you need to drink). When you are done with this homework, you will have a hydration target that you can use in both training and racing.Read More

World Record! Athlete Spotlight Dave Buchanan and The Hobbit’s Tale

Monday, July 13, 2015 3:23:06 PM America/New_York

A few years ago, Wales-based endurance mountain bike rider Dave Buchanan created the Wales Coast-to-Coast off-road cycling route. This makes use of the superb man-made and natural trails that Wales has to offer. To publicize this and inspire others, Dave rode the route (which runs from Caernarfon Castle in North Wales to the Celtic Ring in Cardiff Bay in the South) non-stop in 22 hours 23 minutes.Read More

Coaches Corner: "A Shift of Focus and Emphasis" by Jeff Devlin

Monday, July 13, 2015 3:16:51 PM America/New_York

So, where does cross training fit in your training plan? Or should it? Well, like the answer to many (most) training questions, how it can and should fit is very individual and depends on a lot of factors.Read More

Coaches Corner: Specific Training by Sonni Dyer

Monday, July 13, 2015 3:15:23 PM America/New_York

This is the time of year when triathletes begin to group together at tracks & group rides to get some race-like intensity in before the next big event. So there's no question that there is a need to go harder (ie: higher heart-rate, faster pace, etc…) than one has been training in the Base-phase.Read More

Athlete Spotlight: World Champion Chris Eatough

Monday, July 13, 2015 3:13:06 PM America/New_York

I've been immersed in endurance mountain biking for 10 years now, and have participated in the toughest and longest off road races in the world. Over the years, my training has built up my aerobic system and toughened up my body. Technology has improved so that my bikes are now smoother, lighter, and more responsive. My support crew has also stepped up to become a well oiled machine that is 100% reliable and seems to know my needs before even I do. All the elements of a world class endurance mountain bike racer have been fine tuned and optimized, except one critical piece of the puzzle - race nutrition.Read More

What is the REAL $$$ cost of a 100 mile ride?

Monday, July 13, 2015 2:57:24 PM America/New_York

I spend a great deal of my time talking to customers. I like staying in touch with what is going on in the sports we support, and also getting feedback from people. Occasionally I get the comment “INFINIT is kinda on the expensive side, but well worth it!” That got me thinking (a dangerous thing), how does INFINIT compare on a cost basis when looking at other companies?Read More

Finding a Reason (aka Ramblings of a Madman)

Monday, July 13, 2015 2:36:47 PM America/New_York

I have been racing endurance events for a long time. Last week I was trying to remember the date of my first race, I think it was a duathlon in Columbus Ohio way back when Pyro pedals were the hot equipment. Late 80’s or early 90’s I think, I really cannot remember which. The only hard clues I have is some finisher plaques from the Muncie Endurathon dating back to 1991. So it has been a while.Read More

Notes for the off season - Coach Bob Byard

Monday, July 13, 2015 2:34:38 PM America/New_York

First of all, I hope that 2014 was a successful year for you – whether it was doing races or just staying fit! What follows is an emphasis on not wasting the experiences you’ve had (and hopefully learned from) and I’ll offer some suggestions on what you can do to get ready for 2013. The “off Season” may be right around the corner, but it isn’t the “stop Season.” Capitalize on making the best use of the next couple of weeks and months. I’d suggest the four “Rs”: Refuel, Relax, Reflect, and Repair….Read More
