Rider Highlight: Emily Rodger wins the TT & Road Race at the New Brunswick Provincial Championships
Emily Rodger recently competed at the Tour de Dog -New Brunswick Provincial Championships and took the win at the 7.5km TT and the 75km RR. Nice, Emily!
How’d the race go down for you?
I won both the TT and the RR. During the RR, I attacked at the top of a descent with 28kms to go and got away solo, winning with a 2min45sec lead.
Which coach do you work with and how did your training help you prepare for the event?
Adam Mills. Adam always has a reason behind every training session that I do. When I go out the door for a hard training day, I know the reason to the madness and it encourages me to dig deeper because I want the result of it. Adam pushes me to train to my potential, which then gives me the confidence that I can race to my potential.
What advice do you have for someone up and coming in your cycling discipline?
Work with an experienced coach who can both develop both your fitness and your skill/knowledge as a cyclist/racer. Then get out there and race as much as you can so you can experience all that the sport has to offer.
What is your next event?
Killington Stage Race
