Victorian coaches Patrick Legge from NRG Lab and Clint van Beveren from Mercury Performance Coaching join expert bike fitter Ken Ballhause from Adaptive Human Performance and TJ Tollakson from Dimond Bikes, one of the fastest bikes on the circuit, to explore the finer details of the bike leg to help enhance your racing.
TJ Tollakson (Dimond Bikes)
TJ Tollakon is the owner of Dimond Bikes and CEO of Ruster Sports. Tollakson began racing in 2001 and was a force to be reckoned with on the bike course.
Ken Ballhause (Adaptive Human Performance)
With a Bachelor of Exercise & Sports Science and Bachelor Health Science (Clinical Myotherapy), Ken’s background in cycling began with mountain bikes, racing downhill at both a State and National level. His interest in cycling is now focused on road and endurance track racing, coinciding with the diversity of options available locally in Melbourne. Adaptive Human Performance (Adaptive HP) was born out of knowledge and passion for the sport of cycling. Through seeing the gap which exists between the services that even professional cyclists have access to, and the services that can be offered when a scientific approach is taken, the idea for Adaptive HP emerged.
