Tomac Bikes Makes it Official for 2011

When the DPT cycling team hits the dirt in the upcoming 2011 season it will be on a Tomac! We are extremely excited about the news and can hardly wait to take that first ride on our new machines. Why Tomac? They know mountain bikes! Here is what their official website has to say!

We believe in simple, hard core, quality products that are made by the people who use them.

Bikes with exceptional ride quality are the result of spending hours and hours in the saddle, not sitting in meetings discussing the marketing advantages of one technology over another. We don't spend time chasing trends. We do not make road bikes, BMX bikes, city bikes or any of these esoteric bikes.

We ride mountain bikes. We know mountain bikes. We make mountain bikes.

Thanks to Joel and all the staff at Tomac. I see many podiums for 2011 thanks to you and your bikes. Looking forward to working with you for years to come! Go Tomac!

Let the campaign begin!

Let the campaign for Gunnar Shogren's induction into the 2011 Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Begin!

DPT Running on All Cylinders!

This past weekend saw the conclusion of the ABRA Cyclocross Series and the Dynamic Physical Therapy Team walked away from the weekend with all kinds of awards!

Betsy Shogren, the newly crowned West Virginia Women's Cat 1/2/3 Cyclocross State Champion added to her win total by capturing her seventh straight Cyclocross victory. The win also locked up Betsy as the Overall Women's Cat 1/2/3 ABRA Cyclocross Series Champion. Way to go Betsy!

Betsy loves the mud!

Gunnar didn't do so bad himself. Gunnar spent the day battling as he has done all season against friend and nemesis Gerry Pflug. Gunnar being the cross veteran that he is was not to be out done by his better half and he also took the win at Bruceton Mills CX. The victory gave Gunnar a perfect series scores of 175 points which gave him the series champion crown.

And as he has done for the entire season, Gunnar also was in the 1/2/3 class, racing, mixing it up, and laying it down. Though a bit tired from the earlier race, he never the less tried to race smart, capatilize on other's misfortunes, and generally hang on and try for nice move on the last lap. Third for the day was going to be it as Andy Weidrich was able to out-snake the snaker before the steps for second. Still, his placing kept Gunnar in third place in the younger man's top category.

Gunnar with Pflug just behind

New to the team, Scott Benson made his Dynamic PT Cycling debut this Cyclocross season and did not disappoint. The Morgantown, WV rider finished third overall in the series and let the other riders know they better look out in 2011 by winning the Cat 4 series finale race in style. Look for Benson to do great thing in 2011 while riding for DPTC!

Diggin the Kit Scotty!

What about me? Well I am glad you asked! I had my best cross season ever. Two top tens and a hand full of other respectable results. I also should say we still have a few non ABRA events to do in the 2010 cross season and I hope to add to that total!

Fat boy not looking so fat these days!

Next up! Look for the team to travel to Pittsburgh, PA this weekend to take part in the legendary "Dirty Dozen", a race that climbs the 13 steepest hills around the city. It is a leg burner, believe me!

Thanks to Dynamic Physical Therapy, Cannondale, Kenda Tires, Camelbak, Swiftwick, Ergon, I9, Mike Miller DDS, Edward Jones, Performance Coaching Services, Pro Gold Lube and Pathfinder for letting us race on the best equipment in the business

Gunnar looks to lock up the ABRA Masters Elite series with one more win this weekend and the Same is for Betsy who could take over the Elite Women's overall by just completing the race.

Enjoy some photos from the last few races!

Squeezing in one more MTB event!

AKA "This bike is for a little girl"*

Sunday Gunnar and I decided to head to Pittsburgh, PA to take part in the Month of Mud's North Park Mountain Bike Time Trial. Usually at this point in the year it is NBC (nothing but cross) however from what we heard about the trails up there it was too good to miss.

We left from Morgantown at 7am and sadly it was still dark outside but we were lucky in that the temps were not bad compared to the few days before. Gunnar is well known for showing up for races at the last minute, but luckily for him I was the one who drove us up and we arrived and hour before the start. As Gunnar got suited up and rode off to warm up it was less then a minute before he return.
Houston we have a problem!
Like I said usually we don't do mountain bike races this late in the year. Gunnar had already started to take apart his mtb bikes for the winter and the night before in a late night haze decided to race the geared bike instead of the SS. So after a bit of wheel tweaking and very quick test it was deemed sufficient for a 6 mile TT. Unfortunately both crank arm bolts had been taken off to get a CX bike together and in the haze he had forgotten this. AH HA!

The bolts are specific for those cranks and no one at the race had a set that would work. Gunnar was pretty bummed cause it looked like he was not going to get to race. I think it made it worse that we got up so early to get up there also. After making phone calls and asking everyone there if they had the right bolts it was clear his bike was going to be a no go. After a few minutes we decided to change the pedals on my bike and send Gunnar off on my bike. Yes it is true by being Sponsored by Cannondale, I9 and Ergon much of the bike is set up the same however Gunnar rides a XL frame, I ride a Medium, lol! Problem solved...
But not really cause I run my brakes real close and rear is right while Gunnar being the old school tweaker runs his brakes loose and front is right.

With it being a TT Gunnar went off at 10:30 and I didn't go till Noon. That gave us enough time to change the bike back over for me before my start time. With time on my hands I helped with the start of the race by calling riders to the start line. While doing so I witnessed Gunnar riding around on my bike. He didn't look too big for it however he was sitting straight up in the air like he was riding a cruiser bike due to my smaller frame. Even with the smaller frame Gunnar still put on his game face as he rolled to the start line. We did crack a few jokes but when the word go was sounded he was all business.

Fast forward to the Gunnar's Finish. Even while on someones bike that was set up for a toad he was able to finish 3rd in the vet class. Pretty darn good job Gunnar. Being just a few seconds back I figure on his own bike he may have won the thing. (ed. note- Damn straight skippy, but being how that wasn't what happened, I didn't get than winners $$)

I was at the car now and getting ready for my turn on the course when Gunnar showed up. "Boy you got a fast bike there", he said. I was happy to hear that cause I figured he had a pretty good ride on my bike. As he jumped off the bike we both grabbed my pedals, reset the seat height for me, and adjusted a few other things that he had changed for him to ride the bike. Once the bike was back to my settings I headed out to warm up with 20 minutes before my start time. Perfect. I warmed up by riding some of the roads around the park, it was such a pretty fall day. The sun was out and the temperature was wonderful. Before I knew it, it was five minutes before my start and off to the line I went.

As I started it was a bit rough as the course zig-zagged it's way up the side of the mountain for the first mile. I felt like I was going to blow. My friend Aaron Bennett (Steel City Endurance) was the next rider to start 1 minute behind me and I was just waiting for him to pass me cause I felt terrible. About another mile in I spotted Aaron behind me maybe 30 to 40 seconds back. However by then I started to feel a bit better and was able to get on top of the gear. I knew if I could just get to the road crossing before Aaron got to me I could hold him off (even if his time was better I couldn't let him pass me, lol). In the end I finished in 32:15 good enough for thirty in on the day. Aaron finished in 32:10 for 10th but he never passed me! lol! Nice job Aaron.

The rockstar award went to my bike for the weekend by finishing 3rd in the vet class and 13th in my class out of 40. Great job bike!

What a great race. Thanks to everyone who helped put on such a great event.

To the folks behind the scenes, thanks!

As you can imagine having a cycling team takes a lot of support. We here at Dynamic Physical Therapy Cycling have had a pretty exciting and successful year so far, and we are not even half way through cross season yet. I wanted to take a second to thank some of the local businesses that help support cycling. Please let them know that their support is appreciated by also supporting them and their services!

Afraid of going to the dentist? I know I was a few years back. Then out of necessity of needing a root canal I visited Mike Miller D.D.S. Lets just say I left the place shocked at how excellent he was at his job. This year I again had to make a visit to Dr. Miller's office and he even let me blog about it and he took pics. Read about the visit. Even if Dr. Miller was not a team sponsor I would still highly recommend him. His pain free approach and professionalism as a dentist is really refreshing, not to mention he has gotten a reputation as the "Dentist to the Cyclist" Thanks, Dr. Miller.

People often ask us, how should I train or am I doing this correctly? Sometimes it is hard to answer questions like that because every athlete is different and that is why we always suggest getting a coach if you want to reach your full potential on the bike. We at the Dynamic Physical Therapy Cycling Team count on Performance Coaching Services to help us make the right choices in our training regiment.

Performance Coaching Services is owned and operated by former Professional cyclist Rob Acciavatti. In 1995 at the age of 21, Rob turned professional and raced with the Scott-BiKyle-Flyers based out of Allentown, Pennsylvania. He spent the following two seasons in Europe racing with Kaiku, a semi-pro team from the Basque country in northern Spain. In 1998 he decided to leave competitive cycling and return to college to pursue a degree in physical therapy. Unable to stay away from racing, Rob returned for the 2000 season and began to coach and race with the West Virginia University Cycling Team. In WVU's first appearance at the National Championships Rob won two individual national titles in the criterium and omnium.

Rob and Performance Coaching Services offers bicycle fit and positioning evaluation, cycling specific strength training program as well as 3 different levels of coaching to help you obtain your goals.

Feel free to contact him and make sure you tell him we sent ya.

And when we need bikes, bike parts and pretty much any kind of outdoor gear where do we go? Pathfinder of course!
Not only do they have the best selection of outdoor equipment and products in the state of West Virginia, but they have been around for what seems like forever and can answer just about any question when it comes to your outdoor needs.
Pathfinder originally opened in Morgantown in 1973 just over on Wiley Street, just a few blocks from our current High Street location. Visit them today, you will not be disappointed.

Please support the companies that support the sport we all love so much!

Time for some cross!

It's that time of year when the amount of daylight starts to disappear and the weather starts to get a bit cooler. That means it time for Cyclocross. This past weekend Gunnar and I did the double by racing the ABRA event Kickoff on Saturday and the Month of Mud Cyclocross event on Sunday.

Gunnar was his usual self and was impressive all weekend long. He started off by doing the Masters race Saturday morning. From the start he found himself out front and was only matched by Andy Gorski of Allison Park, PA. The two took turns at the front and a solid gap emerged. For the remaining 30 minutes the two battled turn for turn. On the last lap Gunnar dug deep and attacked over the barriers. Gorski tried but was unable to match Gunnar's prance. At the line it was Gunnar taking his first cross win of the year.

As the promoter of the event it didn't leave me anytime to warm up before it was my turn to take to the course. All the other riders were already there and had taken up all the good spots at the front. I didn't pay it much mind cause I was going to ride my own pace and just see what happen. I had a slightly disappointing race because my fitness is not quite where I wanted it to be right now. However I tried hard and mustered up a 20th.

Gunnar was up again and going to do the Men's 1/2/3 race, his second of the day. The pace was fast. Five riders got away and Gunnar found himself in a chase group of 4 riders. The chase group where putting in hard laps and your could tell the riders in the group were just hanging on. Gunnar was able to use his skills and broke away from the group in the closing laps to take 6th in his second race!

Sunday we planned to head North to Grove City, PA for the Month of Mud Cross race. The drive was 2.5 hours so we had to leave butt early in the morning. It was clear early that the nice weather that we had the day before was gone on Sunday. It started rain pretty good about an hour before we reached the event.

Just like the day before Gunnar's race was first. At the start line it was cold, wet and a shock to the system. I told Gunnar, "harden up, it cross season". The race started and Gunnar didn't have the best start. Early on he was sitting in around 6th place as the rain started to fall even harder, Gunnar started to move forward. Joe and Andy where gone up front but lap after lap Gunnar picked off folks till he found himself in 3rd. That is were he found himself finish and he did a great job fighting back after a slow start.

Next was my turn. I was very cold, wet and even had some teeth chattering before the start. The field was big and we were starting on super wet blacktop. I was worried about someone taking out the field in the first turn on black top so I planned to take it easy on the start. No crashes during the prolog that was nice but I found myself a little ways back. I started riding hard and was having a blast in the mud and rain after I warmed up. I seem to do a lot better in the mud then most folks and in the next forty minutes picked off a lot of riders. By the end I finished 27th out of 81 riders. I felt like I rode better then the day before and the conditions made it so much fun that when I finished-fishing I had a smile from ear to ear! CROSS IS HERE!

TRI'ing something new!

This past weekend was one of Morgantown's most popular events, the 7th annual Sprint, Splash and Spin triathlon present by Mon County Habitat for Humanity. For the past four or five years I have been the photographer for the event and more than once I said to myself I should have signed up and took part in the race. Well this year I did just that.

Most folks know that I am pretty good on a bike but swimming and running?! I didn’t even own a pair of running shoes and would I make a fool out of myself trying to swim in the pool for all to see? These were the questions I was faced with days before the event. I was still going to be the iPlay photographer for the race so first I needed to find someone to step in for me while I was out on the course. Luckily Julie Black (owner of iPlay) was more than happy to get up at 6:30 am and come down and take photos for a bit. Thanks again Julz! Problem solved.

At 8:30pm the night before the race I found myself in a shoe store trying to find something to wear on my feet for the next day. Probably not the best idea waiting till the last minute to find some shoe but free time was at a minimum the weeks leading up to the race. After searching for a whole five minutes I picked a pair of shoes and headed out of the store wearing my new shoes like I was 5 years old again (thought maybe they would break in a bit, lol!). My wife said that the shoes looked funny on me because I never wear running shoes. :/

After my last minute shopping for shoes, Gina and I headed over to Jay’s Getaway for a congratulations party for Laura Kelley who defended her dissertation that morning. GREAT JOB Dr. KELLEY!! I looked at my wife before we stepped into the bar and said, “Two beer maximum for me, got to race at 7:30am”. Well we all know how that goes, let’s just say more than two beers were had. We left the bar at around 11pm and there was still enough time to go home get some sleep and then get up around 6am to prepare to race.

I was nervous about the swimming and running. I was not sure I could complete the swim in 10 minutes and run 5k because I had never done a race like this before. At 4am I found myself lying in bed wide awake. I didn’t fight it, I just got up made some coffee and breakfast and started my day (for those who know me, I never get out of bed before 9am). As much as I hate getting up early it was nice to not be running around trying to get ready an hour before the race started.

Photos by Julie Black/

Fast forward to 7:15. I found myself standing in the pool area at Marilla wondering what the hell I had gotten myself into. Racing bicycles was pretty normal for me but this was going to be totally different! 7:29! I was in the pool making nervous talk with the lifeguard who was in charge. Then before I knew it he blew the start whistle! ACK!! My swim was not a thing of beauty and was a little slow but I finished it in 8 minutes and 4 seconds. I was so happy to finish it before the maximum limit of 10 minutes and headed to the transition area feeling pretty happy. Goal one, complete!

The bike leg was where I had hoped to make up some time. Heading into the race I was shooting for a top 40 time on the bike. I had a slight disadvantage because I was not using aero bars but hoped I could overcome that. In the first mile I started passing folks who exited the pool before me and I was riding well. Even though I was putting in a good effort, I still was able to appreciate what a nice morning it was for a ride. I enjoyed it so much! In the end I finished the bike leg with the 29th fastest ride of the day. Goal two complete.

Photos by Julie Black/

During the ride I was thinking about the upcoming run. It had been at least 10 to 15 years sense the last time I ran, plus I just bought my shoes the night before. “This could be a disaster”, I thought to myself. As I dropped off my bike and headed out for the run I had no clue how my body was going to react. I started out with a very easy pace and tried not to blow myself up. Further and further down the trail I was going and I was still able to run. I was kinda surprised. I got to the halfway point and was still able to run! Hmm I thought. This is new. I was able to finish up the run without walking at all and I was pretty happy with that. Goal three complete! In the end I could/should have going a bit faster on the run but I didn’t know what to expect.

Photos by Julie Black/

I finished the race in 1 hour and 12 minutes. That was good enough for 85th place out of 265 racers. I was extremely happy with that! After a quick change of clothes it was off to take over for Julz and finish up the event photos for iPlay!
I had so much fun doing the race and I hope to do it again next year! Now I just got to get the TRI folks to do my Time Trail race on Sept. 18th!

Thanks to Dynamic Physical Therapy, Cannondale, Kenda Tires, Camelbak, Swiftwick, Ergon, I9, Mike Miller DDS, Edward Jones, Performance Coaching Services, Pro Gold Lube and Pathfinder for letting us race on the best equipment in the business.

Shogrens score two podiums at Nationals and more!

Congratulation to both Gunnar and Betsy Shogren for their efforts at last weeks USA Cycling Master's National Championships in Louisville, KY.

The Dynamic duo (Get it!?! lol!) scored the team first podium of the week with a fifth place finish in the Mixed Tandem division. However that was not enough for the pair as both competed in multiple event during the week. Gunnar took part in a fast and stacked Men's road race and crit, while Betsy took part in crit. Both did very well and Betsy was also able to grab her second podium of the week despite coming down with the flu!

YOu want more?! Well just two days ago the pair entered into the West Virginia State Championship Road Race and BOTH came away as 2010 State Champions. Not only did they win state titles but the race was also the final event in the 2010 ABRA Road Race Series in which they both also claimed the tops spots!
