Garneau Beyonce Kit Launch

In collaboration with Garneau, I designed a Beyonce Kit.  Heidi Myers, Marketing at Garneau and my personal friend, and I designed this kit last spring to launch our custom kit campaign with the Clif Pro Team.  We put the kit on sale with a goal to sell 12 pieces to break even.  The Beyonce Kit gained a lot of traction and we ended up selling almost three times the expected amount. Garneau also created a Beyonce nordic ski suit that I will be wearing in my XC ski and biathlon races this winter.   Also, Bicycling did a nice little article on it online.

Camelbak Heat testing at the Korey Stringer Institute

I joined two endurance elite runners with Camelbak at the KSI heat lab to be tested to see how my body reacts to very hot conditions.  This was a great opportunity with Camelbak to get more information on how I can be efficient and safe racing and training in the heat.  I did a 1 hr tempo effort on the stationary bike in 95 degrees and high humidity.  Things absolutely heated up.  My body temperature reached 103 degrees farenheit and I lost almost 1.2 liters of water.  Wow.  The local newspaper, the Hartford Courant, covered the Camelbak event with print and video.  You can see that I am interviewed post test and very hot.

School Visit

I visited a local elementary school in Essex School district, VT to talk to a crowd of over 200 school kids about what it means to be a professional cyclist and a two time Olympian.  I talked to them for 45 minutes, showed them a slide show, and they were captivated.  It's the best school visit I have done to date.  I could have been there all day answering questions, but the kiddos had to get back to class.

L.L. Bean Photo Shoot

L.L Bean and I have been working together for three years now.  I am an L.L Bean trail blazer and they have made a push to include real athletes in their catalogs.  So, this is the fourth catalog photo shoot I've done with them.  This one I got to do with my sister, Sabra, which was so much fun.  Every photo shoot is a real and authentic adventure and this one was no exception.  We traveled to the middle of nowhere in northern maine and stayed at a lodge that you can only get to by hiking or paddling in.  We hiked the mountains around it for sunset and sunrise photo session.  It was an incredible experience.
