Cody Beals, a member of the 2014 Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series Ambassador Team, finished 5th recently at Ironman 70.3 Texas.
He rode 2:04:43 at that race with a heavy dose of indoor trainer rides. He writes:
The never-ending winter forced me to cycle exclusively on the CompuTrainer from November until the week of Texas 70.3 in April, my first race of the season and my pro debut. At first, I saw it as a setback, but I later realized that it was my secret weapon.
