2017 IMWI – Team PBC Results

What a year! 2017 IMWI did not disappoint, with great weather, amazing crowd support, and some excellent races by Team PBC. We truly became a family over the course of the season, grinding out sessions, training camps, and using each other for motivation ad support when times get tough. After months of preparation, everyone was ready to have THEIR best race.

The results speak for themselves. They are the product of smart work and hard work. Commitment day in and day out to get the best out of yourself. And an ability to execute under pressure. I’m so proud of these athletes!

As a coach, days like IMWI are the reason I do what I do. Seeing so many athletes accomplish their goals and learn more about themselves, it’s very rewarding to be a part of that.

Mark your Calendars

The leaves are changing. We are riding in vests and booties and running with gloves. It’s the off season. Time to take a deep breath and recharge for next year.

Successful business owners will tell you that the off season is the busiest time of year. They are working on budgets, marketing calendars, inventory plans, evaluating what worked and what didn’t, planning for next year. If you spend time and money on your race season, treat it like a business and start planning now. Don’t miss my free seminar next Wednesday, October 29 7pm at Trek Bicycle Store Madison East.

PBC WIN NOW SEMINAR

In addition to all the topics mentioned here I will have t-shirt and baseball cap samples on hand for trying on, admiring, and ordering.
