    By Eric Davis | In General, Race Reports | on May 29, 2014

    Words: Dean Pogni (Mike’s Bikes p/b Equator Coffee) Some Stats: 53 starters (E3=Cat 3 field) 62.2 miles 6,437ft elevation max temp: 102 What an amazing race! The day before the race I put on an 11-28 rear cog, knowing it would be necessary, as this starts off with an hour long climb right from the […]

  • Achieve Athlete Jeremy Dossetter agrees to meet me at the Rapha Cycle Club for our interview. As usual, he looks slightly disheveled in his short-sleeve button down shirt, Ray Bans and spiky hair. Although he projects a James Dean world weariness, Dosetter, who races with Bay Area-based, SquadraSF, is quite animated and engaging in conversation. […]

  • Nearly 45 riders toed the start of Red Kite Crit in Livermore on April 13th. It being my second race of the season, I was both excited and nervous to test my legs and mix it up with the other riders…But before I tell you how I (spoiler alert!) clinched the thing, I should probably […]

  • Achieve Athlete Profile: James LaBerge

    By Dana Williams | In Athlete Interview, General | on April 18, 2014

    I was supposed to meet James directly following my Masters 35+ 123 race at Red Kite #2 this past weekend, which meant that I had about 15 minutes to do a warm-down, gulp down a beverage and a bar, change out of my kit, grab my recorder out of the car and still have enough […]

  • Pre-Race Breakfast

    By Dana Williams | In Healthy Recipes, Nutrition Tips, Optimal Performance, Race Tips | on April 11, 2014

    Achieving maximum performance involves stressing your body followed by resting, recovering and rebuilding in order to become stronger. We all know the old saying about how breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Just think about the last time you went for a long bike ride on an empty stomach. You may have […]

  • A New Beginning

    By Dana Williams | In General | on March 29, 2014

    When I first started the AchievePTC website, one of my goals was to write a weekly blog to share some of what I have gained from my years of experience as both a coach and an elite athlete. If you’ve looked at the blog recently you have no doubt seen that I haven’t quite lived […]

  • UC Berkeley Streets Criterium: My First Win of 2014

    By Dana Williams | In Race Reports | on March 21, 2014

    Coming into this race, my main goal was to help my team get the win. The P/1/2 field wasn’t super stacked because there was a road race earlier in the day, but there definitely was some strong riders. I had in the back of my mind that it would be a good challenge to somehow lap the […]

  • Freezing Temps at Deschutes Brewery CX Cup

    By Dana Williams | In Race Reports | on December 9, 2013

    You may have heard about the epic (or possibly ‘beyond epic’) cyclocross races that happened this past weekend in Bend, Oregon. A low front engulfed the region and sent temperatures plummeting into negative double digits. Achieve athlete Ian Conover was ‘unlucky’ enough to make the trip there and battle the challenging conditions. “I had to […]
