Announcing The Sub-Six Club! BWC Partners With The Mammoth Gran Fondo For A One-Of-A-Kind Race-Day Experience
Mammoth Mountain California is one of the most picturesque and beautiful places on the west coast, with high-mountains, vast valleys and wide-open roads linking all the incredible scenery together.
Luckily, this small mountain town hosts The Mammoth Gran Fondo, which allows cyclists from all over the country to enjoy the incredible views of the Eastern Sierras via it’s 102-mile route.
For Big Wheel Coaching, and so many others, the Mammoth Gran Fondo has become an annual pilgrimage as a great ‘season ending’ event following a summer of cycling fun.

This year, we are proud to partner with the Mammoth Gran Fondo to create something new and exciting in the world of endurance cycling events….
It’s called the Sub-Six Club.
What exactly is The Mammoth Gran Fondo Sub-Six Club?
The Sub-Six Club is your chance to be a “yellow jersey” rider for a day, to be the rider that our team works to protect.
It’s an experience that will see a well-drilled team of domestiques working to help you have your best ride!
Our Sub-Six peloton will be lead by a handful of domestiques that will ‘pull’ the group along the 102-mile route to complete the course in under six-hours.
In addition to having a dedicated group of ‘sled-dogs’ to work for our peloton, the group will receive on-course assistance from a support car just as teams at the Tour de France do!
That’s right, mechanical support, food and water, and a place to shed bulky clothing will be with our peloton all day long!

The Sub-Six Club will be a race-day experience that is usually reserved for pro-cyclists at the biggest of races.
What’s more, all of this on-course and event-day support will be bolstered with a group coaching package and pre-ride training session from Big Wheel Coaching, not to mention a custom cycling kit from VR-7 Apparel!
We want to ensure every rider in our peloton is prepared to tackle the challenge of the Sub-Six experience successfully!
That's why we are using TrainingPeaks and Facebook as platforms to launch a Group Training Plan that will include daily workouts to help the Athletes of our Sub-Six Club develop their fitness to the highest possible level leading into the Mammoth Gran Fondo.
Along with daily workouts, our peloton will have access to a Facebook group, exclusive to Sub-Six riders, that will be filled with coaching advice and plenty of our best Gran Fondo preparation tips and tricks to ensure you have an edge on the competition come race-day!

All of the fun, coaching, and support will begin on July 1st, just a few short weeks away.
And with only 50-spots available in our peloton, getting signed-up early is a must, because space is limited!

Much like how marathon-pacers lead their group of runners to a predetermined finishing time, our Sub-Six domestiques will shepherd our peloton through the days difficulties to an incredible experience.
But more than a standard marathon-pace group, the Sub-Six Club is a complete ‘pro-level’ experience before, during, and after the event. It’s something you won’t want to miss!
Stay tuned to BWC, Mammoth Gran Fondo, and VR-7 Apparel social media channels for more information about the Sub-Six Club or email us at BigWheelCoaching@gmail.comif you have questions.
We look forward to seeing you in Mammoth!
Until Next Time, Be Safe, Train Hard, And Have Fun!
