What are your goals for 2019? To run your first ultramarathon, ride a century in under six hours, qualify for the mountain bike world championships, or volunteer more time helping kids achieve their own sporting success? These are just some of the goals PR Lotion users have targeted for 2019. We asked Amp Human Performance athletes what goals they have in mind for the new year, and this is what they shared.
"Instead of setting resolutions, I make a point to set an intention or choose a mantra for the year ahead. For 2018, my internal dialog was "OWN IT" to ignite confidence in all I do; working in the bike industry, racing professionally, and stepping up as the owner of our local kids mountain bike program. Coming back to this simple mantra helped me stay on track and face goals both on and off the bike knowing I could get the job done without any external influence. I'll be looking to do more of this in 2019."
Karen Jarchow, Team Topeak-Ergon
“Finish Leadville 100 mountain bike race in sub 7 hours and make the mountain bike marathon worlds team.”
Bryson Perry, Rouleur Development Team
“Continue to progress and achieve new levels of fitness along with pushing the limits on the mountain bike. It's a never-ending, exciting process that keeps me excited, motivated and feeling young! Gotta keep pushing! I'm super excited about visiting some new venues in 2019. Multiple races in Idaho, Washington, Montana, and B.C have been on my radar the last few years and now it's time to see what all the hype is about.”
Curtis Keene, Specialized/Redbull
"My 2019 resolution is to become an "Ultra Mountain Athlete" who competes in ultra distance events both mountain biking and trail running at the elite level."
Yuki Ikeda, Team Topeak-Ergon
“Our initiative for 2019 is to grow riders in a very wide spectrum, from developing young talent at the pro level to bringing the sport of cycling into the kindergarten classes across the country through the Strider Education Foundation. Growing our squad of 10 cyclists to not only be at the highest level in the sport but to also become influencers while living life in a way that fosters gratitude, teamwork, self-discipline, and self-awareness. The team’s race-specific goals include regaining our number one ranking as the top amateur team in the U.S., teaching the guys to think and race like professionals, and graduate at least one rider to the professional ranks at year’s end.”
Chris Creed, Gateway Trek Devo
"Rolling into 2019, my resolution is to build upon the foundation and lessons learned from previous seasons. Each year my events get longer and tougher. For 2019 I want to be able to execute these ultra events with success and a good head on my shoulders."
Jeff Kerkove, Team Topeak-Ergon
“A spot on the Epic Rides Off-Road Series overall podium in addition to a top-five finish at the mountain bike cross country national championships.”
Cypress Gorry, Rouleur Development Team
This product is phenomenal! Truly is a game changer. Used it recently for my 12+ Hour Spartan Endurance Race that required me running over 30 miles, climbing up mountains, and doing over 65 obstacle courses. Amp Human was critical in me finishing this race! Will continue using it and telling others about it
I am consistently surprised by how well this stuff works. I use it for all my long rides and am much less sore the following day than I expect to be.
I used this for the first time during a half marathon and absolutely loved it! I had almost no pain in my legs, WAY less than normal, and I was able to run longer because of it. Highly recommend this!
I’ve been so happy with PR Lotion. I can push through hard intervals and race with confidence that I do t have to overreach and burn out early. There are plenty other products that make claims, but PR Lotion has the research and results.
I love this stuff. My legs don't cramp, they aren't sore afterwards, and it's become a pivotal part of my pre-race routine.
I have been using the lotion mainly for my lactic threshold sessions. I get through the workouts with less pain and find that I am able to recover for the next day. The biggest plus is not feeling so much of the burning sensation in my hamstrings as much after high intensity interval runs.
The first two times I used PR lotion, I won two UCI cyclocross races! Of course, it's become a staple part of my training and racing routine since then. Recently, I competed in 4 events at Sea Otter in 3 days - using PR lotion before and after each one. I won the final event and was amazed how well my legs held up for all of the efforts.
