Coaches corner

Let me introduce you to ‘wheel sucking’ from a cycling perspective.
It was a Friday, and after a long and difficult week at work I donned some Lycra cycling clothing, drove my car east of Edmonton to the Sherwood Park, mounted my Jota-Moreno bike and headed into the rural area of Strathcona County. The goal was to clear the tension from my legs and the metaphysical residue of the week in the office from my head.

Edmonton cycling

By: Zdenko Kahlina
You can’t get companionship like this when riding solo.
Finally! Halfway the month of April and it’s our first group ride of the season. On this mild Sunday, spring is unmistakably in the air. But the nights are still cold, close to freezing point. So the start of my bike ride at 10 AM was pretty chilly.

Member of a red squad of the Soviet team from the 80′s
Back in the 70′s and 80′s the red squad of the Soviet teams dominated International amateur racing and were feared at every event they entered. But what was it really like behind the Iron Curtain competing for the USSR? Was the pressure really as high and the programme as tough as the rumors suggested? Ed Hood recently caught up with a man who lived through the programme and won races around the world as part of the red squad, Nikolai Razouvaev.
