A busy August with Ben Walkerden leaping his way up the hill at Fields of Joy National Cyclocross Championships and Halkswood head coach completing a small biomechanics research project on pumping for speed. In similar style to his State Championship win Ben rode off the front of the race leaving the competition to think about second place. A convincing win for Ben and a perfect lead up to the question of 2016 World Championships in Zolder, Belgium. For Greg, a vice chancellor letter of commendation for the research project! Wow! What now? Planning is underway for the lead into world championship with many race options available. Ben had committed himself to winning the National Championships and left no stone unturned. Halkswood Training Systems developed the coaching product of the trademark “4 Sided Pyramid” which was instrumental in the successful planning for this National Championship medal and also left no stone unturned. Of course Ben’s commitment makes success appear easy. However, learning about himself and what he could achieve with new found self belief and strategic training made a significant difference for Ben. Well done! Well deserved! You are a champion!
