For this year, we were able to pull off a coup of sorts by being able to invite not one, but four well known personalities in the cycling industry..
We'll be doing, for the first time in the Philippines, Tech Sessions and Seminars. Schedule is April 2, from 2:00 p.m., until 6 p.m., at the Subic Bay International Convention Center, Subic Bay Gateway Park.
Topics to be discussed, and speakers are:
Topic: Wheels 4 Life
Wheels 4 Life is a non-profit foundation that has been assisting the less privileged in acquiring a bike. The foundation has the support of the community and is one of the leading projects in the cycling industry.
Trivia: In 2006, when Hans Rey came to the Philippines, it was the first time in the foundation's history where he personally turned over to recipients bikes. Some of the recipients were people who were affected by the deadly Southern Leyte landslide.
Topic: How to compete in the world cup
Brian Lopes has been described as being the most complete rider in the cycling industry.. He has been riding bicycles all his life, and was just recently inducted to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and BMX Hall of Fame. His experience and insight in competing in the world cup is an invaluable and will be able to help Filipino athletes in getting a better understanding of the competition at the highest level of competition.
Topic: The Philosophy of designing a Jones bike
Jeff Jones is a legend in the cycling industry in terms of cutting edge design of bicycle frame and rigid forks. He bases his design on the demands of the trails in Oregon, USA. Jeff is known as a leader in the design of the non-suspended bicycle. His ideas and passion have created an exceptional ride - a geometry that delivers superb handling, comfort and efficiency.
Topic: Bicycle suspension 101
Get the low down on the basics of bicycle suspension designs. Too many times people have been fed wrong and misleading information about bicycle suspension designs and how rear suspension works. Now get it straight without the marketing hype..
Jay is the chief operating officer of Banshee Bikes, one of the world's leader in mountain bike full suspension bikes.
Bike Fitting 101
Topic: The essentials of bike fitting and how important is a proper fitting bicycle
