Victoria, BC – September 7, 2012 (ISN) –  The Pacific Cycling Centre, Victoria, BC will be holding the first of five training camps from November 8-11, 2012. The off-season winter training camp is a kickoff to the PCC 2012-13 programs and is focused on endurance, strength, core stability, flexibility and balance.

The group rides aim to develop and improve endurance and boost aerobic capacity for both road race and short distance track cyclists.

Led by Head Coach, Houshang Amiri, the four-day camp will include four endurance rides and will feature tips on pedaling efficiency and learning how to develop a correct technique; recovery based training – learning how to manage your fatigue and recovery from training and competition, and strength evaluations and observation during the dynamic strength sessions.

The camp is open to all levels and will assist in training and preparation for the season ahead. The camp will work and improve aerobic power, ITT, and climbing technique. Under the supervision of the PCC coaches, athletes will improve their fitness levels and receive feedback on training as they build a foundation for the season.

Deadline to apply is October 30, 2012. There is a 10% discount for athletes who register before September 30, 2012. For more information go to:
