2017 Challenge Regional de Bretagne sur Piste, Senior et Junior Dames
When goals are set in the early stages of an annual training plan it is hoped the progressive training program delivers the desired outcome for the rider.
Moving in to a new age group category for a sixteen year-old is daunting especially as junior women are grouped with the senior women.
The challenges were many this season especially with the initial focus placed on road racing however a decision was made to concentrate solely on track and this was a good decision by the rider as the results began to come in! Each round of the Challenge series saw the rider develop both physically and mentally with on bike tactical decision making which affected the outcome of many races.
As a coach it is extremely rewarding to witness a rider take that next step on their stage of development, and when they are able to race, think & engage a new plan in the heat of the moment you know the rider has ascended to the next level of their development.
Well done on attaining your goal of getting to the podium as well as those process goals along the way!
