Train Your Brain :  The Mental Side of Cycling

Dr. Wayne Halliwell , University of Montreal

Today’ Olympic athletes spend a lot of time training their bodies and their minds so they can bring their best on the biggest international stage. Weekend warriors  can use the same mental and emotional skills to maximize their performance and enjoy their sport each time they go for a ride. In this presentation we will look at how you can use visualization, self-talk, key words, concentration, relaxation techniques, breathing, perspective and confidence-building techniques to create an optimal mindset.
