BarryS Coaching Moab Triathlon Training Camp

BarryS Coaching Moab Triathlon Training Camp is to be held in conjunction with the Moab Skinny Tire Festival, in Moab, Utah.

This year marks the events 20th anniversary

Cyclists know about Moab; they know it as the home of the Slickrock Trail, the Mecca of mountain bikers. What many don't realize is Moab has some of the best road biking in the world. There are hundreds of miles of paved roads in and out of the world-class scenery that is known by every adventure seeker globally.

The four rides of the Festival highlight Moab's different riding opportunities. Two days follow the mighty Colorado River corridor, both up-stream and downstream. The other two days leave the valley and climb the beautiful canyon roads into redrock country visiting Dead Horse Point State Park and Arches National Park.

2016 will be my third consecutive year attending the Moab Skinny Tire Festival with Coach Barry. My experience has gotten better every year, as not only have I improved my cycling efficiency, I also have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful landscape in the world.

This event is extremely well supported and organized. Under the leadership and coordination of Coach Barry, this training camp is a kickstart to my triathlon season. Coach Barry has each day planned with workouts and fun and exciting activities around Moab. I promise you will come back from the MSTF a better cyclist and a better athlete all around!
