2012 – What’s On Your Bucket List?

A New Year brings on a chance to start fresh and get some renewed focus.

You may want to kick some butt in more than one GranFondo next year…or just better your time in the one you did last year. Either way, setting a goal is going to keep you motivated throughout the long winter months.

I thought that I’d make sure that you were aware of some very cool Pro races happening in North America these days – watch the videos on their sites and get inspired to go down and watch! Some of the climbs of these races are just like being in Europe watching the best ‘players’ duking it out.

The best pros in the world will be planning to win these races and they are training hard right now to be ready. Most of the guys will put on 10,000+ kilometers at low intensity over the winter before they start to go hard. The bigger the base, the more consistent their season will be.
