Austin Camp
Last Tuesday fellow CTS coach Daniel Matheny and I headed to Austin, Texas for a private camp with six CTS athletes.  We arrived in Austin at 2:00pm and hit the ground running.  We had 46hrs before the first ride of the camp started and a fair amount of reconnaissance to accomplish before we were able to rock and roll. …

Tailwinds: what goes around, …
by Gil Jones
Don’t you love wind at your back? Really, literally or figuratively, it is a nice feeling to have the wind at your back. Tailwinds let you move either faster or with greater ease.

No big deal for a West Texas kid — I’m just proud when there is no dust in the air! …
