This past weekend we hosted the first Source Endurance Training Center of the Rockies Spring Training Camp. We ended up with two groups, and A and B group, both of which really put in some serious miles for the long, 4-day weekend. The purpose of the camp was to provide attendees with the resources to put in serious miles without letting the little things bog them down.
We kicked off Wednesday with a bike tune-up with Velofix and kinesio-taping with Samantha Welter from Empower Performance Therapy to get everyone ready for the long-weekend. Resources for riders included Matador breakfast burritos, Peritus Coffee, and any body work needed with Empower Performance Therapy. Rides were fully supported with ride food, extra bottles, and spare wheels in the follow car (thanks Bill and Evan!), for fast and focused miles. Post-ride included a debrief, Elevated Legs (compression boots), recovery shakes, and any soft tissue work or kinesio taping with Empower Performance Therapy.
