Trek Factory Training Camp-Day 4

SPARTACUS!  This training camp is one of the only times the entire team is together the entire year.  Because of this, all the sponsors are here right now.  The guys that fit the riders on their bikes are working 24/7 to get all the riders set up on their road bikes AND tt bikes.   We […]

Trek Factory Training camp-Day 3

‘Easy‘ is a Relative Term.  Riding with  Bob Jungles, Julian Arredondo, Fabio Felline, Danny Van Poppel, Haimar Zubeldia, etc… sounds awesome on paper but is an entire different venture into the proverbial ‘pain-cave’ in reality. Especially if you’re riding in a foreign country, only know a few phrases (donde esta banyo, caffe con leche) and don’t really know […]

Trek Factory Training Camp-Day 2

  Ouch. So today we rode with two of the team doctors, Jens and Andy. Not only are they both exceptional riders, they’ve also been coming to L’Albir for training camps for years so they know the best routes. In addition, which is good and bad, is that they both love to climb- a lot. […]

Trek Factory Team Training Camp in Spain- Day 1

Never again!  The only flight option we had to get to Spain was via New York.  If you don’t already know, JFK Airport’s an evil vortex of of hell.  We sat on the tarmac for 3-plus hours waiting for one thing after another.  Which meant we, and everyone else on the plane, missed the next flight […]

Optygen at 19,000 feet!

‘I’ve been using Optygen from First Endurance for at least 5 or 6 years for bike racing. I looked at the ingredients and thought that it might work well for my mountain guiding at very high elevations. I guided 3 groups up Kilimanjaro last summer and the Optygen worked great until the last trip up and I […]

Cancellara and Team on Dramatic Flanders Victory

First Endurance rider Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory) defended his Tour of Flanders title today by winning a four-man sprint to the finish.  The 259-kilometer race came down to a riveting, tactical battle as Cancellara had to play a cool hand with no teammates remaining, most victims of crashes that marred the race all day.  The […]
