My husband uses TrainerRoad, and this Spring will mark the start of his second season of bike racing. I am a runner, and he’s supported me for years in my races. I’d like to return the favor.
I feel like I know what I’m doing cheering him on in long events where his primary goal is to complete the distance, but I’d love some advice about how our 7-year-old daughter and I can best cheer him on in circuit races and time trials.
Do you have any suggestions about cheering locations? What should we cheer? Is it helpful to pass along information about relative performance? When do I start yelling to have some hope of his actually hearing me? Are signs ever appropriate?
And separately, what should I be watching for as a race progresses so that I can appreciate the tactics as they unfold?
Thanks a lot. I only dabble in cycling in my running off seasons, but I love the podcast and find a lot of the topics and advise are easily translated to running.
