October 05, 2012 (Victoria, B.C.) – The November off-season winter training camp is a kickoff to the PCC 2012-13 programs and is focused on endurance, strength, core stability, flexibility and balance. The group rides aim to develop and improve endurance and boost aerobic capacity for both road race and short distance track cyclists.
Dates: Nov 08 – Nov 11, 2012 Location: Pacific Cycling Centre, Victoria BC Spaces Available: Open Disciplines: All Level: All Deadline to Apply: Oct 30 Camp fee: $395 + HST (10% discount before Sept 30) PCC athletes 50% discount)
Find out what you need to know about how to build your foundation and fitness for the 2013 season. We know your time is valuable and we want to make sure you reach your best form in the shortest time possible. This is a unique opportunity to train and work with PCC head coach Houshang Amiri who is leading the camp. While we are focusing to build and improve your fitness, we will help you identify your training targets that is vital as you build towards your personal goals.
Customize your Camp:
Power Meter: There is an opportunity to train with a power meter during the camp. Data from each ride will be collected and analyzed on a daily basis. This is valuable information that will help to find your own training targets and train in the zones that you need to optimize your training outcome. Ultimately this information will save you time and make you more efficient in a shorter time.
How it works: Your bike will be fitted with a PowerTap Power Meter, we will install your own Cogset on the PowerTap wheel (please make sure your Cogset is clean) your data (power files including heart rate, cadence, and speed) will be downloaded every day after the ride and analyzed by the PCC coach. You will then meet with your PCC coach at the camp, he/she will give you feedback and you’ll see how your body is responding to the training. You will learn new techniques and be able to set targets for your future training. Note: there are limited PowerTap powers meters available so please book yours when you register for the camp
Dynamic Bike Positioning
We use power meter and pedal stork analysis to maximize power transfer, pedaling efficiency and riding economy. Includes shoe positioning.
Maximal Aerobic Power (MAP) & Lactate Profiling
Maximal is the peak value that can be achieved by correlating cycling variables. MAP refers to the peak work rate or power that an athlete can sustain using primarily aerobic energy systems. It is different from a VO2max test since it focuses on sustainable power, and maximal oxygen consumption is not measured. This test is recommended for all cyclists using heart rate monitors, power meters and perceived efforts to measure training intensity. This test uses established cycling protocol and the latest testing equipment and technology available. It will determine your aerobic fitness on the bike and your lactate will be sampled by end of each stage of the test. There are limits to how the body can process these by-products – lactic aside – and it is important to determine the training target zones. After this test your coach will identify your specific training intensity targets for your training program based on your individual physiology; we pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, and create a suitable training target for your needs and up-coming competition goals.
