What you will learn 🎓

You will learn how top riders approach race planning, course analysis and recon. You’ll see how teams and riders use new tools like Veloviewer (integrated with Strava, Sauce, MyWinsock, Google Earth, and more) to do virtual re·con·nais·sance /rəˈkänəsəns/ leading to real world recon. You will learn how five elements: parcours details; weather; technique; competitors and tactics, inter-play into race planning and the recon. You will learn how to contextualize this to races at home in Canada or North America.

Karol-Ann shares her expert insights into planning for time-trials. Steve & Kev will share how race coaches – or Sport Directors plan for races months out.

Above all, it will be A LOT of fun. We’re excited to have Toni the tiger on for his first #cnvstn – he is a hoot. We are going to keep this session really light because Toni loves keeping things light and fun. We encourage you to register so you can ask Toni (and the panel) your killer questions. We will keep this session 70-80% focused on what young athletes ask Toni and the panel, layering in the technical mumbo-jumbo around your questions.

This session was of high interest to athletes in our Mentor program, we’re excited to bring it you.

The #cnvrstn will be one hour, if we’re having a lot of fun we’ll let it run longer.
