The World Deaf Cycling Championships will host a weekend-long power training clinic at the California School for the Deaf in Fremont from May 19 to 21, 2006. The 2006 World Deaf Cycling Championships will take place in the San Francisco Bay Area, June 18 to 24.
Proceeds from the clinic will go to the week-long international event, to be hosted on U.S. soil for the first time and which will feature elite cyclists from 10 nations.
"This is exciting news, especially in the Bay Area which has a lot of cyclists who are very competitive and are always looking to improve their performance," said Robin Horwitz, director of the 2006 championships.
Hunter Allen will introduce the concept of power training, which has been widely adopted by professional cyclists such as Lance Armstrong. The clinic will discuss training with a power meter, threshold power, training levels and power profiling.
Registration for the clinic will be 180 dollars and is limited to 30 participants. Interested persons can register online at www.usdeafsports.org..
