Its our belief that true success, true potential, true peak performance all arise from one point: true health. Therefore the pursuit and purpose of training is to acquire the healthiest body, mind, and spirit, as these are the prerequisites for any true pinnacle experience. These are achieved by focusing on skill acquisition, learning and refining of technique, developing an acute awareness of where, how, and why the body moves, to the point that the athlete can execute skills, tactics, and strategies on demand even in stressful environments. The result: athletes live out their fullest potential in sport, and in life beyond sport.
By learning how to initiate all movements move from one central point – the core – allows an athlete to train for all sports simultaneously, and allows the athlete to transfer power efficiently throughout their body minimizing stress, strain, and risks of injury and illness. The result of this type of training: athletes develop a degree of efficacy that allows them to outperform in any one sport, in all three sports, and to transition between each sport effortlessly.
OUR TRAINING EQUATION
Hi Rep Technique Training [HRTT] = Develop Skill(s) + Build Capacity + Refine Technique
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
TOETT Kelso mini-MTB Race Series
Results will be organized according to the category the athlete competed in during the 2019 Kelso MTB series.
Athletes new to MTB racing will be organized in a Beginner category.
Race Route #1 (7.0 km & 95 m elev) – Kelso MTB Winter Loop (click for map)
This race starts at the summit parking lot entrance, please start/stop your bike computers where you turn onto Bell School Line. This is a great loop that will provide a warm up to riding off road as there arent too many technical sections, and the climb up the ski hill is not included. The interactive race route shows the finish at the end of Darryls Alley, but our finish line will be at the end of Bell School Line just before the summit parking lot. This route is 7+ km long, if your bike computer comes up short.. you probably missed the section on Bruce Trail Connector.
This course begins at the usual start/finish of the Kelso MTB race series, please start/stop your bike computers where we started and where the finish line was last year. There is a route change because Darryls Alley is one way in the opposite direction of this route, please use Old Farm Lane instead. Old Farm Lane runs beside and parallel to Darryls Alley; the race route reconnects right after Darryls Alley ends and continues along Old Farm Lane. The climb up the ski hill is Quarry Climb… the climb is not marked with caution tape; however there is enough of a remainder of the trail from last year that it can be utilized.
