Eastside Multisport Presents:
Improve Your Cycling Performance
With Power-Based Training
Keynote Speaker: Richard Wharton
Saturday, May 5 - Sunday, May 6
Come Join Us As We Discuss the Importance of Power-Based Training.
Author of Watts per Kilogram, Richard Wharton has become an expert in training with technology using the latest in science to optimize performance. With an extensive background in wattage based coaching, Richard Wharton has been helping cyclists improve their performance in less training time by utilizing wattage based training and the lastest in technology for over the past decade.
Cycling training today is constantly evolving with an increasing understanding of the benefits of wattage-based training. Wattage-based training has become an essential part of training plans for cyclists, triathletes and duathletes. Also known as power-based training, an athlete's power is determined by the amount of wattage that you can produce while pedaling the bicycle. Heart rate is no longer the best, most effective way to assess cycling performance. Whether a novice cyclist or an advanced podium finisher, wattage-based training provides athletes of any ability the most comprehensive and consistent method to improve cycling performance in less time than traditional heart rate training.
Open to all cyclists, multisport athletes and coaches.

Why should you test your wattage every six weeks?
Every six weeks test your wattage on a 40K (24 miles) or 10 mile flat cours. This allows for a comprehensive analysis of wattage in cycling performance. By monitoring results and averages throughout the test, we gage where your greatest needs are to improve your performance and your fitness level.
What results will I receive from the basic analysis?
• Average Wattage Threshold
• Maximum Wattage
• Average Wattage per Kilogram Ratio
• Caloric Expenditure
• Power Statistics
• Average Speed
• Maximum Speed
• Average Heart Rate
• Average Cadence
• Maximum Cadence
• Speed Average
