Women's Cycling Camp
Last week, for those who were not aware, the Canadian Cycling Association offered a camp in Bromont Qué. open to all Canadian senior women wanting to improve themselves. In order to promote women's cycling, the CCA put together a number of learning activities that could come in handy for the races to come.
A total of 12 women coming from Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec responded to the 10 day camp that started on June 12th and finished on the 21st.
Of the activities offered were race tactics, positioning on the bike, interval sessions, TT preparation, pedalling techniques, testing, track riding introductions, bicycle mechanics and training program structuring. On top of that there were invited guests like Ken Brunet from the OSSC, who did some testing on the women and interpreted the results, National Program Director Pierre Hutsebaut, nutritionist Mélanie Olivier, National Coach Eric Van den Eynde who talked about Computrainer training and the renowned sport psychologist Saul Miller who worked on different mental techniques and did some one on one dialoguing with the girls.
The advantage of this camp was that it was done in a relaxed climate in the beautiful surroundings of the Bromont region with a bunch of women wanting to learn as much as they possibly could about the sport they have chosen.
I feel that the camp was very necessary project offered to Canadian women. Not only did it allow the CCA to assess the pros and cons of the national womens situation but it also permitted some hands-on opportunity to rectify beliefs, habits and misconceptions that some girls had about the sport of cycling. On top of that, some of the girls learned that they had some abilities that they never had the opportunity to tap into; which to me is a great plus!
Oftentimes, I find that athletes at a national level don't know exactly where they're going with this cycling thing and don't have anybody to give them advice on the direction they should take. More often than not, it doesn't take much to send somebody in the direction suited to them. This camp also served that purpose.
In general, I was enjoyably surprised of the enthusiasm that reigned in the small group and the determination that all of the women present had to achieve whatever goals they have fixed for themselves.
I truly hope that camps like this can be repeated in the future because there is a need for them and for some athletes, little get togethers with professionals in field can go a long way....
