sprinting for bronze in Cat 3 provincials
Cyclingphysio.com was started by me Dave Holmes, a Calgary physiotherapist with a passion for bike racing. It began after my rediscovery of competitive cycling not only as an elite pursuit, but as a recreational lifestyle choice.
I became involved with the cycling community in Alberta after signing up for a charity ride. I joined a local club to get in shape, but after riding in my first Sunday ‘fun race’ I became hooked on racing. I started training and eventually started racing. Initially I found the transition from riding to racing a daunting one.
Even though I had been a passionate cyclist my whole life, learning to road race was no easy feat, I had many questions. Luckily I had clients who were involved in racing and they invited me onto their team and imparted some valuable knowledge. Once I became a part of the local racing scene I was surprised by the variety of great racing opportunities and the number of welcoming clubs that existed. With the help of my club and some other great resources I was able to progress from Cat 5 to Cat 2 in under 3 seasons of racing.
The experience led me to start cyclingphysio.com with 3 goals in mind.
