Tom Soladay and the rest of the Mountain Khakis team lined up in Philly for the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championships this past weekend. One of Tom’s major goals for the season was to be in a position to be able to go for a high placing in this landmark US event.
Almost every coach will agree that we learn more from mistakes and failures than we do from success and winning. One event that this is the most true is the individual time trial and the best way to really look at a time trial effort is to study and dissect the power file. Many riders will not look at their power meter displays when racing, but will ride with that little extra weight for no other reason that to look back at what happened and hopefully learn from their mistakes.
