I decided to take up competitive cycling in February 2013. Six months later and still struggling to even stay afloat in a B-grade race I met Bob. Eight months later I have returned home to New Zealand and won my regional club championships and feel completely comfortable jumping into an A-grade race here in Perth. To me, Bob’s training style is to cycling what Arthur Lydiard was for running, his methods based on a strong endurance base and periodisation. You won’t need to sit in front of a computer after a ride to tell you your improving with Bob’s way of doing things.
