Utah Training Camp


The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team is enjoying a great training camp in Park City, UT. After spending two weeks in the mountain town of Truckee, CA it was time to move the team 1,000ft higher to Utah where they could have the opportunity to preview the upcoming Tour of Utah routes.

Today the the riders tackled Stage 1  which begins in Logan, UT and climbs up over Bear Montain. On race day the course will cover 132 miles and over 6K ft of climbing. Once over Bear Mountain, they descended into Idaho and rode around Bear Lake before beginning the climb back up to Logan. The temperatures were high and the wind was stiff, which made it a great day for testing the body in race-day elements.

They will have 2 more focused route recon rides in the upcoming days as their final prep will lead them into the beginning of the event on July 31st.

Canadian Climber James Piccoli Has Arrived

The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team is excited to announce the addition of James Piccoli to the roster for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. James is a native of Montreal, Canada and will be bringing an impressive depth of climbing to the team for the upcoming Tour of Utah and Colorado Classic.

“We are super excited to welcome James Piccoli to the Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team,” Director Heath Blackgrove explains. “He has taken a big step up in the last year and has really impressed us. He is consistently at the front end of every hard race and I am positive that with the help and support of our team, he will continue to progress. He is a great addition to our team and we are all excited to work with him.”

James has joined several of his new teammates in the mountain town of Truckee, CA for an altitude training camp.  This has doubled as a great way to jump straight into the team environment. With 6 teammates to tackle long rides with, the benefit will be undeniable come race time.

“The training in Truckee is awesome! I am having so much fun exploring new roads and the scenery here is incredible. The transition to the new team has been super easy because of how great the staff and riders have been and how welcoming they are, ” James recounted as we discussed his new setting. “We have already had some good rides, good dinners and good laughs so I can’t ask for much more. I’m really looking forward to The Tour of Utah and hoping to be a bit of a surprise there! I have never raced this event before, but I believe the team will come away with some pretty good results.”

James recently raced for the Canadian National Team at the Grand Prix Cycliste Saguenay after his solid early season successes which included a 5th place finish on the Redlands Bicycle Classic Oak Glen stage. Being fluent in French, Italian and English will add another layer of culture to our already diverse squad. We are excited to have James aboard and we are looking forward to many great race days ahead.

Mountain Bike Season Update #7 | Healing and the Firecracker 50

For those athletes that don’t enjoy time off the bike that time tends to get mandated by circumstances out of their control. With a full fall of cycloross and a full spring of mountain biking, mid-summer is typically when I get a bit of a break.  Even then sometimes the trails are calling or the weather is just perfect and I can’t quite bring myself to stay off the bike.  This round with a cracked rib and then an unrelated course of antibiotics I found myself happily (but rather guiltily) avoiding training. 

There were still plenty of activities to partake in and as someone who generally rides and trains solo, I was very much enjoying a rare taste for the social aspect of self-propelled machines with two wheels.  I coach a local juniors program, partook in bike to work day (that counts if you are working at home, right?!), set the pace for a friend to PR our local hill climb challenge, went to see fireworks, joined “Lookout week” for ridiculously early morning laps that ended with in town coffee stops, commuted across town for further away trail head meetings with the kids, and had evening spin outs to the local breweries.
My conclusion to this week of spending time with friends while on bicycles was that I love my community and even though I’m away for a good portion of the year I’ve chosen the right place to settle down.  Further proof was found when I finally addressed the abscessed tooth from my broken face crash a few years back.  I never took care of the tooth because it wasn’t an outwardly obvious issue (my dentists would care to disagree) and the exuberant costs of getting it fixed.  Even with insurance the cost was daunting but I determined the time was finally here as I was becoming increasingly aware of something not right going on in my face.  The specialty dentist I was referred to chatted me up about his bike riding stating he was one of the slow guys that had a go at the Lookout climb a few times a week and did I know his friend (my neighbor).  Irony has it that we had become better acquainted just that week and when I mentioned after how the appointment had went and that the cost was a shock even to my being prepared for it, I was the recipient of a phone call from the dental office telling me they were going to forgive the cost of the visit.  I view money as a necessary evil, I don’t have an abundance of it as a professional bike racer but to reduce the stress on me of how I was going to manage to cover that cost is huge.  

After about a month of unfocused riding and well into my root canal induced course of antibiotics I jumped in for the women’s duo at the fourth of July tradition Firecracker 50 race in Breckenridge.  The race went okay, I wasn’t too far behind the leader in my wave during the first lap but I sure couldn’t put out the watts to make magic happen.   This frustration was sidelined by the relief at feeling comfortable handling the bike on the trails again after some time of recoiling from the use of any body part connected to the broken rib (read: most of them).  Personally the team format race is a much more enjoyable concept in mountain bike racing as it adds the urgency and desire to do your best not just for yourself but for your partner and your collective result.  We managed a podium which I am grateful for but I am even more grateful to get my enthusiasm to train back.
