I hope everyone is havng a great Spring season. Well the SPEED season is in full swing and I thought a post on the methods Frazier Cycling has to make you FAST would be appropriate.
Monday: The superb Hill Repeats session - this is quickly becoming a classic workout! I hate doing it - which is why it probably is very effective! Try it out if you have not already.....it will improve you 30 second and 90 second power! It is short enough that you will have plenty of energy for your Tuesday rides.
Tuesday: FAST Lunch ride and FAST Laps - these are the staple for Frazier Cycling to prepare one for racing....each provide a separate purpose. Lunch ride is a stop and start and surgy fast group ride usually averaging 25+ mph. Laps is more akin to a Team Time Trial.....Steady and hard! Do both in one day for 6 weeks and you will be an animal
Thursday: FAST Lunch ride and Gary's (Tempo) - Lunch is same fast session as Tuesday and Gary's is a hilly hard Tempo ride. Great double combination.
IF you have any questions on these workouts - contact me or Coach Frazier.
Have a great week!

2013 - still getting used to that! Well the Winter is waning and early season road racing is upon us. Tundra is in the books with a few FART's showing up on that blustery day. Lisa got a decent result so good job. Meanwhile, the Greenville Spring Training series enlarged to 4 weekends and is quickly becoming the go-to event of the early season. David Haney got a 6th place showing already. Two more weekends to go. There have several shifts on the race calendar.....here is the latest. Hope to see you out there! Greg

Happy Holidays FC ART folks!
2012 was our inaugural year for the adult race team proudly wearing the Red armbands....It was a good year for our team's first organized effort and 2013 should provide even more participation and achievement!
I hope everyone is laying down their off-season foundation. We are so fortunate to have Ralph present at every club ride to motivate riding even in the dark days of Winter. Take advantage of this - just follow his weekly ride schedule - and if you can't make it to the ride - reach out to Ralph or I for a suitable trainer ride to substitute. His weekly ride schedule is a training plan and it works!
Please have a safe, enjoyable and peaceful Holiday season!
PS: the newly designed Real Design 50 Carbon Clinchers are ready for purchase....

FC ART Dahlonega Weekend - another success!!
Second annual trip was a success with 3 days of riding in the GAP's doing a lot of FORCE work (i.e.forcing your legs to push you up a steep hill!) to build leg strength plus a solid amount of fellowship as we all enjoyed our suffering. Saturday's group (pictured) persevered through a 4 + hour 5-GAP ride on a beautiful day in the mountains. Friday and Sunday were the traditional 2+ hour 3-GAP rides we all know and love. The Hiker Hostel was the perfect host location again. Our turnout this year was roughly double of that last year. Look forward to lots of training over the Holiday season with all this new fitness we earned. If anyone has suggestion on how to improve the weekend for next year - let me know.
GOOD JOB FRAZIER CYCLING!!!

Subject: Daholonega weekend
Subject: RE: Last GA race of season/Fall Training Camp interest???
The last race of the year is Saturday in Dahlonega. If your life has complicated your training plans like I experienced this year – you have a lot of company! It is not easy to persevere and keep training plus racing a whole season. Johnny and I will be racing Saturday to defend our podium positions on the GCS. Come on out if you are so inspired.
On another note – last November we had a weekend training camp at the Hiker Hostel up the road from Dahlonega. We had a small group but had a really nice time. Is there any interest to go up the GAPS and enjoy a weekend of riding and camaraderie? Sometime in late October or early November might make sense. I already got 5 YES’s on the Training Camp idea. How does October 26-28 sound?? We can arrive Friday afternoon (Sat morning arrival optional) and return Sunday noonish. I know that October 27th 3PM is the UGA – Florida game…so watching it down at a restaurant in Dahlonega that late afternoon while nursing our sore butts will need to be on the agenda. ….smile.
I thought that the weekend before end of Daylight Savings might be smart before the “Darkness” of Winter starts to creep in.
Georgia Championship Series results updated!!
- Johnny Mayero is 1st in Cat4 with Mark Schulz 16th and David Haney 53rd.
- Greg Hanson is 2nd in M45+.
- Coach Kelli Rogan is 12th in W3.
- David Goodman is 6th in Cat 2.
The men in Blue strike again....Gainesville Road Race and Time Trial podiums! Johnny won the Cat 4 RR and 3rd in the TT! Awesome sprint to break away from 30 guys and win the RR - hilly RR!! Greg took second in both the 45+ RR and TT. Other FART's were Wendell and yes Humberto raced his first race of 2012!!! Everyone did well!
There is a break from racing until Newton Omnium June 9-10...
Well - the big crit weekend of racing in Georgia this weekend and we snagged one podium which is cool....Way to go Mark Schulz 3rd place in the Cat4 Athens crit!
The races were predictably fast and well attended. Athens crit and Roswell Crit are the two biggies and all the racers came out. Our team was well represented and fought valiantly. Good job everyone.
Aside from all the dramatic accomplishments of the Junior at the State Criterium Championships and the Monroe County RR this weekend (WOW- did Frazier Cycling clean up in all the races this weekend!!!)…..we had several FC Adults race as well – and all stood strong in their respective divisions…...
As expected the races were well- attended and FAST! We captured one podium in the Men’s 4 RR – Johnny got 3rd! Podium picture attached. David Haney, Mark Schulz, Johnny and I competed in the crits and all finished the fast races in our respective races. I think the Macon Crit course is so much fun to race and watch, too. In the Sunday RR, the 4’s and Master all rode together in a MOB (while it made the race fast – faster than the 3’s – it was not a fun race for me as I was looking forward to a smaller and more tactical race). Johnny sprinted the last hill to take the top Cat 4 in the field sprint. Alexander got 7th and Mark 16th. David was 22nd I think…and I avoided a near-crash and soft pedaled in.
Sadly and finally – the Cat 5’s (and Women’s ¾ - again not sure why they created another MOB!) raced together and 2 miles in a bad crash happened. I am hearing it 3rd hand so I won’t write the details – but the result was Henry Zuver has a broken collarbone and likely concession, Anna Zuver has a broken collarbone, Lisa has a broken bike and banged up leg, and Johnny has a very sore back and body (like Superman deflecting bullets as he was hit again and again by riders banging in to him as he sat on the ground after his crash – ouch!) Sometimes crashes happen – I have been in two bad ones and they are not fun. I gotta say that Henry, Johnny and Lisa are tough as nails –
Results from the Tuscaloosa weekend of racing for the FART's...
No podiums but some solid results!
Johnny was a beast and earned $120! He was 6th in the Cat4 RR, 16th in a very fast Masters 35+ crit, and 26th in the Cat 4 crit. David Haney was also a beast following right behind Johnny in the RR and Crit in Cat 4. Lisa Bongiorno earned $50 and 8th place in the Womens Cat 4 RR. David Goodman was top 20 in both crit and RR in Pro 1-2 - what an animal!!! Yours truly had a humbling weekend but did finish a pretty satisfying 19th in the Cat 3 crit and am track with my training - I knew this weekend would be really hard and am hungry to race Macon. The Tuscaloosa Race weekend is a highly competitive race weekend because of the huge payouts.
Now the really fun part - Saturday night food and frolic at the Wingate. Lots of bonding as we enjoyed Mellow Mushroom pizza and beverages. Just hanging out and talking cycling.......what could be better...3am bike rides perhaps.....smile!
3 More Podiums!
- Mark Schulz gained another 2nd place Cat 4 at the Dalton Circuit Race on Saturday
- Johnny Mayero 3rd place Cat 4 RR in Albany
- Greg Hanson 3 place TT, 3rd place Overall 45+ in Albany
First Podium for FC Adults!!!
Mark Schulz won 2nd at the Cat 4 Perry Roubaix Circuit Race on Saturday! Good job Mark!!

Well - Johnny, Keith (and I guess David Goodman) and I represented the Adult Race Team at the WBL. And Keith and Johnny (and me kindof...) even got their picture on the website - see below. It was hard ride -- but instead of my word - see the writeup Keith Suderman did....
Latest bike adventure...the Winter Bike League.
I ride with a juniors' racing club called Frazier Cycling. I know, I'm not a junior or a racer - but what better place to learn this sport. Anyway, this week, a handful of the racers, plus me, drove to Athens, GA, to ride with the Zealots. Apparently, Athens is home to two professional teams and the UGA college team, and WBL is how they stay sharp during the off-season. It's longer than any single ride I've done, as fast as my fastest ride, less "nurturing" (Frazier works hard to ensure that the slowest person survives; Zealots do not...).
I started the ride near the back but realized that little speed changes near the front became crazy yo-yo-ing at the end (all 130 of us were in one double paceline). The multibike crash immediately behind me reinforced the issue. So I started playing the passing game and worked my way up to the front third. But my inexperience and lack of endurance started to tell as we reached mile 40, and by mile 60, I was clinging to the end of the paceline and learning some things about what road racers call "suffering." Well-named activity, that suffering... It was a relief when the fast guys broke off the front for the final sprint and left the
pace-setting to the mortals - I even managed to move up into the pack as we were coming into town.
I'm not sure why we call this fun, but, aside from the hunger (I'm having another midnight snack right now), I seem to be no worse for the wear.
We are still planning on doing the Winter Bike League ride on Saturday. The weather appears good (unlike today!) so come on over. If you need directions – let me know. Just meet at 9:30-9:45 at Sunshine Cycles on the northwest side of downtown Athens.
People may wonder if I endorse WBL as an better alternative to the FB50….well - not really! My opinion is that on balance - our ride is still the best off-season ride for the types of riders in our club.
I just think that doing the WBL once will give our FC ART team a chance to see what other racers are doing this off-season.
With Turkey Day around the corner, we are entering the season where fitness is often less prioritized and that is somewhat of a good thing. Taking a break and enjoying the Holidays causes us to relax a bit and recharge our batteries. So - don't feel guilty - enjoy yourself. But as with everything - do so in moderation. Try to keep active.
And to that end - The FC ART will give the Winter Bike League a try on December 3rd. The ride starts at 10AM at Sunshine Cycles in downtown Athens and is 70 miles. This is offered to give our team some limited exposure to others we will likely see at races within a group ride environment. It can go fast at times, so don't expect a FB50 Sunday pace.....If interested - let me know. We have 6-8 folks interested thus far.
But for now .... keep on training.
Well the first FC ART camp is in the books. It had its spills and chills but we had a great time and discovered that the Hiker Hostel is a fantastic base camp location! Having the owner of a pro cycling team as your host is pretty cool! Our attendees got some terrific base training in the mountains with over 12,000 feet of climbing. The food was great, the weather was great for November and we had lots of quality time to lay out our 2012 and long term goals.
While we hope to have an adult Cat 3 team, Women's team, U23 team, among other classifications - the vast majority of the riders are of the "mature" men’s variety. So as Ralph said - we essentially have the start of a "grassroots" Master's men's Cycling Team. I would like to see some folks "step up" and lead a Women's, U23 or other team. Until that happens, the mature Cat 4/5 Men will mostly drive the direction of our team. But all teams need to start somewhere and we all fold under the Frazier Cycling Partners program so we all are one overall team!
Our next FC ART get together in January will likely be a local venue where more folks can attend - and will try to offer the "Day only" option again. By January - we will know the race calendar for 2012 and can start to make race plans for the year!
So for now....keep on training!!!
Cathy and Ralph would like to offer a special day only package for Saturday for $35 for those riders interested in coming up for the day. This is the agenda and hope you can make it.
7:30 - 8:30am Breakfast and FC ART announcements
9:00 - 1:00pm Long ride in the mountains
1:00 - 3:00pm Lunch and Goal Setting Activity
3:00 - 5:00pm On-Bike Skill building
6:00 - 9:00pm Team Dinner

A few updates:
- Two weeks until camp. There are still 2-3 more spots free as Cathy let a couple rooms go. But - you know what they say....it is quality not quantity that matters.....smile. If you want to come up for the day either Friday or Saturday - let me know as you would be most welcome.
- Reservations on Velocite frames is underway. If you want the price list - let me know. This is a no-money-down reservation. Currently we have 3 frames reserved - one Magnus and two Helios Aero. I am getting a Helios Aero - very excited for this rocket ship.
- Real Design Wheels are available if you want them. If you want the price list - let me know. I have a pair of 50/50 clinchers that I enjoy for what it is worth.
Keep on riding and be safe.
Good Coach's Corner article if you have not read it. Coach Frazier is really behind our Adult Race Team!
Hope everyone is enjoying their off-season.October is great time of year to unwind from intense riding/training and have fun on and off the bike.
Regarding the Fall Mini-Camp, we have 7 folks committed thus far. We can accommodate 5 more. Just as October is a transition month, many serious cyclists resume their training in November and this camp would be a good start towards developing a good base as well as good habits and skills talk by the Master - Coach Frazier.
Also - don't forget to join us for a brisk Saturday FC ART 30 at 10:30am. We are riding pretty hard after the FB50 A group. Averaging between 19-21. Good way to keep that "engine" tuned up! Smile.

Contact Greg, Brian or Cathy if you want to join us!
We have done three Saturday 30’s now. The pace has been averaging around 19 mph and has been a nice steady ride. I think we have dialed in the course pretty well but the timing after the FB 50 is not working right. So starting this Saturday we will begin the FC ART 30 right after the FB 50 A-group completes their ride. For FB 50 B-group folks – an option would be to join the 11:30 Ladies and Gents ride if you wish to get more saddle time. Or do FB50’s on Sat and Sun which will also deepen your base endurance.
Sorry to make this change – but the FC ART 30 ride begins too late otherwise for most folks.
Hope to see y’all there this Saturday. I will try to not flat or get dropped this weekend…smile.

2012 Frazier Cycling Adult Race Team (aka FC ART)
WHAT IS IT??
The Frazier Adult Race Team is for ALL adult FCP members that want to race in 2012. We have racers interested in all categories Men’s Cat 4/5, Cat 3, Cat 2, Men’s Masters and Women racing! We invite FCP members to consider our adult team and welcome potential racers interested in joining Frazier Cycling because we have the best organized training format for new or experienced road bike racers!
We have many adults including former Junior racers, Master’s racers, potential Women racers, and developing FCP Adult racers that need a supportive environment to develop as riders. Look at the results the juniors have attained with the Frazier “formula” – our FCP adults have great potential to succeed in racing as well!
Well – we will start small and dream big! Frazier Cycling has already structured solid top notch year round training and it’s nationally recognized junior team is at every race. The Greenville races are 6 months away so we have plenty of time to organize and train for 2012 racing. Here’s a sampling of adult racing activities that we are planning…
- Saturday Morning Base training – Starting September 17th after completing the FB50 – interested FCP riders can join our Adult Race Team folks for an additional 30 miles. It will be 18-20 mph endurance zone training to attain a solid 4 + hour total training dose.
- Winter Bike League participation – Starting in December - for those adult racers that wish to experience the WBL, several elite juniors and adults will be participating. The Saturday Base training (#1) will continue as outlined if you don’t have time for an all-day WBL event.
- Skills Training – Frazier Cycling offers effective race training on Saturday and Sunday afternoon as well as Wednesday evenings to all FCP members.
- Fall 2011 and Winter 2012 Training Camp Weekends – We know adults may have a hard time getting away so we hope to find FCP Adult Racers interested in a long weekend of skill training, race tactics education, TT/endurance training, plus race goal setting and FUN! Ralph and Cathy would facilitate these camps. We are looking at early November in Helen for our first camp…..details forthcoming.
- FCP Adult Race Team Blog – That is what you are looking at!!!!! Communication is essential so all Race Team members feel involved.We will communicate events, introduce new members, and share race results.
- 2012 Race Calendar…..TBD….stay tuned
- If you have any announcements or tips for the team….send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
