Wow, what a pleasure to have met Vicky Holland! And an absolute privilege to do her bike fit.
When an athlete lets you make changes to their bike, suggestions and position its very trusting and something that I’m lucky enough to do as a living, especially for an athlete that makes her living from her sport and is hoping to win at Rio 2016.
Vicky is having a brilliant season having won two World Series Triathlon championships, Cape Town and Edmonton and having gained Qualification for next years Olympic Games.
I was amazed to learn that Vicky had not had a bike fitting for 5yrs! For an athlete at that level, it could be the difference between winning and losing at the highest level.
This year Vicky has a new bike Sponsor, Dassi, and I was asked to go to Dassi HQ to do her bike fit.
As you can imagine I was as excited as a kid in a sweet shop, not only am I a great fan, but to work with an elite athlete that could win gold at Rio……that’s pressure!
There were some very nice changes to her position and recommended changes to some equipment.
It was a great afternoon and the results were great as only a couple of weeks later Vicky won in Cape Town.
I was excited and relieved to see that win….a great job by the whole team.
