Whether you are a cycling nut or just interested in knowing how to gauge your fitness level, you won’t want to miss the event we are having at the Lab on Sunday, September 29th, 4:30-6pm. Team Physician for the Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling Team, Dr. Kevin Sprouse, will be here to share his experiences on the tour and help explain the physiological happenings in our bodies.
“Dr. Sprouse lived in Roanoke for a year while studying at medical school so he has a tie to our community and loves the area. He has worked in various medical capacities in the cycling world for the past 5 years with his most recent and current stint as one of the team doctors for the Garmin-Sharp Professional Cycling team. Dr. Sprouse worked as Garmin-Sharp’s team physician for the Classics, Tour de France, and Vuelta de Espana (to name a few). In his spare time, he is an ER doctor in Knoxville, TN and runs a sports performance practice at Provision Performance Lab.
Dr. Sprouse lectures on sports performance all over the country and his unique perspective from both the professional and amateur ranks will speak to all of us. He will be presenting Sunday evening followed by performance testing for individuals on Monday/Tuesday (2 spots left for those interested). The cost for the lecture/presentation is $10 on Sunday and there will be a raffle held to support our local Junior Cycling Team. Raffle prizes will include amazing Garmin swag from the 2013 season and gear from East Coasters and Lab Sports Performance. There will be a special Fall Cycle Lab promotion offered to everyone who attends Sunday evening. You won’t want to miss this great event!
