Pack a smile and bring your attitude Spinervals Fans, we are filming! GIDDYUP!
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING: At our Conference, you'll be learning in a classroom setting as well cycling on the road and on an indoor trainer. For the bike segments on the trainer, filming is tentatively planned for outside to take full advantage of the desert scenery. Be prepared for a chilly start to the day. A bike jersey may be sufficient, but pack a light, weight base layer that can be worn beneath should you need it. For the bike ride on the road, dress accordingly for January in Tucson. This can mean cooler than what you might expect in the desert as we climb Mt. Lemmon. Pack warmer clothes for the road, including gloves. Better to have them and be prepared. We have ordered a warm January day, but you never know!
We have not scheduled any swim or bike workouts for the multisport athletes, but be aware that you will have easy access to Sabino Canyon for running and the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort has a heated lap lane pool.
JERSEY INFORMATION: Jerseys are custom ordered according to the size you provide when you register. You will not be able to return or exchange the jersey for a different size and there will not be extras. These jerseys are cut small, so please be sure you view the SIZE CHART and choose your size carefully. We recommend ordering a size larger if you are between sizes.
Jerseys will be handed out at the conference for those who register by 10/24/12. There will be an added shipping charge for those who register after 10/24/12 and those jerseys will be mailed to the shipping address you provide.
