This month, wind tunnel testing comes to North Carolina. The A2 facility in Mooresville, just a few miles north of Charlotte, was designed by Gary Eaker, the same designer of the AeroDYN Wind Tunnel which is the test facility of nearly 100% of NASCAR race teams. It will be open for year-round testing of cyclists and manufacturers alike.

A2 General Manager Dave Salazar said testing will be managed by bicycle specialist Mike Giraud. Mike has 15 years of cycling experience and has worked top athletes including Nathan O'Neill (eight-time Australian TT Champion), Chris Horner (three-time NRC Champion), Robbie Ventura (retired US Postal Cycling Team rider), Saturn Cycling Team, the Equipé Rona Cycling Team, and the Timex Multi-sport Team.

The lab boasts a sophisticated data collection system, including real-time rider feedback. For more information, visit www.a2wt.com.
