TrainingPeaks Explained

TeamSnap

We are using TeamSnap for some of our Race team communication.

  • By invite only for active team members.
  • We set up the account at your Athlete’s email as primary, or parent email if they don’t have one.
  • Athlete is the primary in the group, then you can add family members so parents can receive all messages and notifications so everyone is in the loop
  • Request access by emailing your Coach from your Athlete’s primary email account

Skills

  • We at Cog Wild and Cascadia Junior Cycling follow the PMBI certification & methods for Mountain Biking Skills Instruction, check them out if you want to know more at https://pmbia.org/
  • Skills with Phil — fun behind the scenes videos
  • Ben Cathro — World Cup DH previews, recaps and more
  • Red Bull Bike — from live World Cups & comps to rider profiles and features
