World Deaf Cycling Championships, Ergomo and Hunter Allen will team up for a weekend-long power training clinic at the California School for the Deaf in Fremont from May 19 to 21, 2006, which will immediately precede the 2006 World Deaf Cycling Championships, to take place in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“This is exciting news, especially in the Bay Area which has a lot of cyclists who are very competitive and are always looking to improve their performance,” said Robin Horwitz, director of the 2006 championships. Proceeds from the clinic will go to the week-long international event, to be hosted on U.S. soil for the first time and to feature elite cyclists from 10 nations.

Hunter Allen, co-author of “Training and Racing with a Power Meter” and CEO of The Peaks Coaching Group, will introduce the concept of power training, which has been widely adopted by professional cyclists such as Lance Armstrong. The clinic will discuss training with a power meter, threshold power, training levels and power profiling. This is the first time Allen will be in Bay Area to present on power training.

Friday evening will set the stage for the weekend-long clinic with the basics of training with a power meter.

Saturday morning, Allen and the participants will go out for a group ride and perform 20-minute time trial tests in order to determine individual training levels and power profiles. In the afternoon there will be analyses of individual performances from the morning and a continuation of the steps outlined in “Training and Racing with a Power Meter.”

Sunday, Allen will wrap up the clinic with an in-depth discussion on power training and long-term training strategy, including an explanation of how cyclists should time peaks in their power training schedule.

Ergomo, a manufacturer of power meters, will provide 10 units over the weekend. The units will be available following the clinic to participants at a discounted price.

Registration for the clinic will be 180 dollars and is limited to 30 participants. Interested persons can register online at http://www.usdeafsports.org/2006Cycling/PowerTraining. For further information, please contact Horwitz at robinhorwitz@gmail.com or Allen at hunter @ peakscoachinggroup.com.
