Race or Workout Data Analysis Session with a Cycling Coach

Training or Race Data Analysis Session

From Strava to Garmin to TrainingPeaks WKO+, sifting through your training and racing metrics sometimes feels like it requires a Masters degree. Good news: We have those—and we have over 30 years of coaching experience. We can help you understand any numbers on any platform. This session can also be used as a way to interpret lab- or home-based lactate test results or metabolic cart test results.

How Your Data Analysis Session Works

  1. Schedule your appointment and we will begin by understanding why you need help with analyzing your performance data. Are you preparing for a goal race? Are you stymied by a challenge and need some guidance? Maybe you have found a riddle in your data and you are looking for meaning.
  2. We will ask you to share your metrics and then we will get to work, applying our tools and decades of performance analytics experience.
  3. Then we will meet to report back on our discoveries and suggest next steps based on what we have learned.
