    Any of you guys know this guy?

    Name is Kirk Whiteman and he's a local coach that I was referred to by a shop I go to here in Portland. All the people I've asked about say he's got a lot of track experience as a coach and competitor.

    Yes. He's a really fast guy, smart coach, and nice person. I can't say enough nice things about him.

    He coaches this guy: http://www.usacycling.org/kevin-mansker.htm

    Same guy:


    Tell him Carleton from Atlanta says, "What's up?". He'll get a kick out of that.

    "Tell him Carleton from Atlanta says, "What's up?". He'll get a kick out of that."

    He looked suprised and smiled when I said that.

    Anyway, the class was much more controlled and focused than any of the other spin classes I've been to. The bikes were better (cyclops pro w/power meter, etc) and he was meticulous on fit. Interestingly, he told me that 90% of his riders' training is indoors on the cyclops bikes.

    I've been looking at indoor trainers a bit and ran across that SRM model - that thing is freaking expensive.

    Yeah, he's a firm believer in on-the-bike power training. It works.

    Yeah, the SRM one is expensive. The Cycleops one with power starts at a more reasonable (reletively speaking) $1,600-1800.

    Know I'm raising a dead horse here, but I just want to tell anyone in the pdx area to not hesitate to hit up Kirk for a good spin workout this winter.

    I've been training with Kirk since I started racing 5 years ago. All of my training was done on those PT300s. In fact, if the older one with the pink ribbon is on it, that was the one I used

    Kirk knows his ****, and is the best coach I've ever worked under.
