    Over the Top Cycling - Lon Haldeman discusses the Ghana and Elite PAC Tours

    in Fitness

    Ultracycling legend Lon Haldeman joins us to talk about his recent PAC Tour in Ghana as well as the upcoming Elite PAC Tour.  


    The fastest transcontinental bike tour ever! PAC Tour's first Elite Tour was in 1995 and has been going strong ever since!


    Daily miles range from 140 to 196 miles per day. Riders completing 100% of the tour will qualify for the Race Across AMerica.This extremem cross country bike tour intended for the most serious riders who are looking for a very challenging ride across America.    All riders must routinely ride 200 miles in 10-12 hours in training. An Elite Team Division is being offered for two riders to share participating by individually riding 80-120 miles each day.


    This Elite Tour begins in San Diego, California with moderate daily distances the first three days while crossing the desert.  We hope all riders will be able to gradually work themselves into shape before they begin the longer days for the remainder of the tour.  The route will use a combination of good cycling roads we have ridden for many years.


    This is not an easy cross-country route following the boring flat lands of the Southern states.  We will intentionally climb many steep mountain grades in Arizona and New Mexico.  In the eastern states we will ride many hilly days including the notorious Talimena Parkway which includes many 15% grades.


    This cross country bicycle tour is only for the best riders. Do not come on this tour if you are looking for an easy ride across the country. Even the fastest riders will be tested to their limits on most days.

    Over the Top Cycling - Cyclocross with Cheri Felix

    in Fitness

    Lucky's Market lived up to its name a week ago when I luckily bumped in to 303Cycling contributing editor Cheri Felix.  Cheri was getting ready for a cyclocross race and conditions could not have been better.  Snowing heavily with 18 degree temps.  Cheri had never raced in snow so I was looking forward to hearing all about her experience.  Cheri usually rides mountain bikes and lately has become cross curious. She has three kids, one dog, one bearded dragon and a husband. When she’s not taking care of her family she’s riding, planning a ride or writing about riding. Cheri’s passion is spreading the good word about riding on dirt and how it can change your life. She also likes beer which is not a requirement to ride bikes. You can follow Cheri on Twitter @mtnbikechi

    Over the Top Radio - US Pro Cycling Challenge with Benjamin Day

    in Fitness

    I was unable to write "...with United Health Care Cycling team's Benjamin Day" this time as Ben formally retired from professional racing following yesterday's final stage of the US Pro Cycling Challenge.  After a 17 year racing career, Ben decided it was time to focus on his coaching business 'Day by Day Coaching'.  Ben will give us his final recap of the 2014 USPCC. It was an understandably emotional finish for Day but he's excited about the future.

    Over the Top Radio - US Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 5 with Benjamin Day

    in Fitness

    United Health Care Cycling Team's Benjamin Day joins us to discuss Stage 5 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge.  This stage’s serene first 80 miles hide a vicious finish and a last chance for climbing specialists to really make a move. Starting in the new host community of Woodland Park, Stage 5 heads west then north through some of the most picturesque terrain in Colorado. A quiet run through the Pike National Forest on Tarryall Rd., which was unpaved until just last year, and the riders will christen it properly with high speeds and lots of breakaway attempts. The action really starts when the race hits Fairplay and begins the long grind up 11,500 ft. Hoosier Pass, the highest point in the race. Then it is on to Breckenridge, where last year’s challenging finish up Moonstone Rd. will be repeated again. This nasty little climb can kill a break or launch a winner.

    Over the Top Radio - US Pro Cycling Challenge with Garmin Sharp's Gavin Mannion

    in Fitness

    Gavin Mannion - the newest member of Team Garmin Sharp - joins us this evening for a look at Stage 2 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge.  Alex Howes of Garmin Sharp took possession of the Leader's Jersey today racing through some truly awful weather conditions.  Stage 2 opened fast by ripping down the Aspen Valley through the sprint cities of Basalt and Carbondale before tackling the 8,700 ft. McClure Pass. A short descent brings the race to Gunnison County road 12, which is a 20-mile rollercoaster that constantly changes from pavement to dirt and back again, while topping out at 9,900 ft. over Kebler Pass. A technical descent into Crested Butte brings the race back to familiar terrain. As in 2011 and 2012, the race will finish up with a sprint through downtown Crested Butte and the steep finish climb up to Mt. Crested Butte.

    Over the Top Radio - Robin Farina interviews Janel Holcomb

    in Fitness

    Janel Holcomb’s professional career began as a Chemical Engineer but she soon transitioned into teaching high school chemistry, math, and physics to help teenagers get excited about learning. During her time as a teacher in San Diego, Janel discovered road cycling by riding and raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with her husband. Cycling friends and a local coach encouraged Janel to take the next step and start bike racing; it turned out to be the right path as Janel turned professional in 2008, just one year after her first bike race. Janel has raced for three pro teams and the US National team in the US, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Qatar. Her breakout year was in 2011, when she won the overall NRC title and three NRC stage races: Cascade Cycling Classic, Tour de Toona, and the Joe Martin Stage Race. Janel was honored to be selected as a member of the US Olympic Long Team for the 2012 London Olympics and will continue to race through 2016 with the goal of qualifying for the Rio Olympics, helping the US earn a gold medal at the World Championships, and winning more races along the way.

    Over the Top Radio - US Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 1 with UHC's Ben Day

    in Fitness

    United Health Care's Ben Day checks in from the US Pro Cycling Challenge with Stage 1 details.  Stage 1 is the Aspen Circuit Race.  The Aspen/Snowmass Circuit may be short on distance, but it packs a punch. At 65 miles (3 laps of nearly 22 miles each), and 2,300 ft. of climbing per lap with minimal recovery, this circuit puts the “challenge” in USA Pro Challenge. Each lap will see the riders grind up to Snowmass Village, then a quick descent leads to two short but steep climbs, and a quick loop through downtown before doing it all again. Pair that with a starting elevation of 7,900 ft. and you have one tough opening day.
