2011 Cycling Power Meter Review
words and images by: Kraig Willett
1992 was the year I started racing my bike. During my failed attempts at living the awe-inspiring and lucrative dream of a domestic US professional bike racer, I had a few good race results – well, maybe only two, but who’s counting! There were some key things, for me, which allowed the achievement of most of my modest goals along the way. The most important key was simply having the discipline and desire to ride my bike - a lot. The second ingredient was having a good coach to nudge me in the right direction and tailor my training program specifically to my needs. It didn’t hurt that my coach was also my brother (former Prime Alliance Director Sportif, Kirk Willett) and wintertime training partner for the better part of the 90’s. There’s no motivation like having your coach call you up to schedule the daily ride when there’s twelve inches of snow on the ground and the mercury is hovering below zero.
