Pivot Edit: Emilie Siegenthaler


Pivot’s favorite Swiss National Downhill Champion, Emilie Siegenthaler, knows that good days on the pump track, fun trail rides and riding her Phoenix on runs she knows like the back of her hand are all parts of finding the flow when World Cup time comes around again. She’s currently ranked 6th on the World Cup and we can’t wait to cheer for her at Fort William!

That’s 3 years….and we’re still going strong. Each issues costs $4.00 or $16.00 per year.



N1NO Knows How to Suffer


At this point in my cycling, I’m good never doing another interval or “suffering,” but that’s still what butters the bun of the marketers selling racing. In this video, Nino teaches goal setting, diversity and frame of mind. He doesn’t race a ton of days so he can be 110% for his top 10. In season he cross trains (runs, lifts, skis) and spends 25% of his time in intensive training, adapting to suffering. It’s not as complicated as a coaching plan would have you believe: put the time in, focus it, and extend the length you can go before the elastic snaps. For roadies, besides weight cutting in the pro ranks, it’s done with 2 x 20 intervals.

While my mood has shifted from turning myself inside out during a race to finding zen, and questing for the perfect weekend ride, fully understand those that push the limits, and what it takes to perform at your best.



Leavenworth Pump Track


Well that looks like fun, huh? Make a weekend out of it, pump track, road and gravel riding—beer and sausage too.
