    Over the Top Cycling - Robin Farina interviews Ally Stacher

    in Fitness

    Ally Stacher is a professional cyclist with Specialized-Lululemon. She's a support rider who does everything she possibly can do to help her team succeed.  Stacher


    inherited a love of homemade juicing from her aunt, who bought her a Jack LaLanne juicer during her sophomore year of college. “I was instantly hooked,” she says. “My roommate and I started juicing like crazy.”


    It’s a habit that Stacher continues today—even while on the road. “I was traveling with a little Omega juicer,” she says. “It was perfect—it fit into my backpack so I never had to put it in my checked bag. Then the travel got to it and it died on me. It was an incredibly sad day. I now travel with a Breville juicer my teammate bought me for my birthday. It’s pretty easy to lug around. I will say, though, when you go through security with a juicer in your backpack it tends to set off the alarm.”


    Stacher claims to be a frugal juicer—“I don’t do too many add-ins…the occasional wheat grass, but that’s about it.”—but admits to being crazy for beets. And for good reason: Research show that drinking beetroot juice can boost a cyclist’s endurance. In one study, volunteers were able to ride about a minute and a half longer compared to when they drank a placebo. Ninety-two seconds may not seem like a lot, but in the world of professional cycling, it’s more than enough to separate the winners from the losers.

    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 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 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 - Silver State 508 with Marko Baloh

    in Fitness

    Marko Baloh is currently working on his altitude training riding all the high Colorado passes in preparation for the upcoming Silver State 508.  He takes time out from his training regime to speak with us on a rainy Monday.  The Slovenian is one of the best in our sport and is nearly untouchable in distances up to 1,000 miles.  Along with his multiple world records in the ultra distances Marko is still highly competitive in traditional bicycle racing.  He is a past winner of the Furnace Creek 508 and would like nothing better than to add a victory at the Silver State 508 to his resume.
