Road Biking For Racers

Park City has become a road bike race destination due to the availability of serious hill climbs, furious descents and miles of ranch country.  The topography is an ideal training ground even for pro cyclists because of the variety of options, including some that are challenging enough even for world class road riders.  Case in point, one of our Jans team members gave Levi Leipheimer a tube and some air when he flatted on a training ride they were doing together recently.

At Jans not only do we understand the value of being prepared, we also know the importance of selecting the right road bike for you and in making sure you have the right componentry.  Our Bike Setup section will help you understand the nuances of selecting the right stuff for your road bike, including detailed discussions on things like the decision between tubular and tubeless tires.

The Competition Products section shares our staff favorites on everything from standard road bicycles to time trial bikes in addition to nutrition, hydration and accessory recommendations.  Our Skills Center provides tried and true tech tips on how to be a better competitor, before, during and after a contest.

And we saved the best for last.  Our Jans Fit Lab is staffed with expert technicians who know how to give you a bike fit worthy of the pros.  Check out this section to see our techniques for maximizing your performance.

Having served in the army for over 3 ½ years, Marty knows about being in shape. Prior to moving to Park City, he regularly rode the Garden of the Gods in his hometown of Colorado Springs. It’s no surprise that his favorite part of the annual Ride of the Rockies is pace lining so he feels like he’s flying. Never mind that the race averages 80 miles a day for six consecutive days.
