Experience/background with Massimo Testa/Heiden? (UC DAVIS)Zonic Man

My fiance and I are going to be coached by Testa here, getting ready for next season, and to generally stay in shape.

My first appointment with him was a cyclist's dream...super nice, excellent advice, took time with me, the best Dr.'s visit I ever went to. He even WALKED ME HIMSELF across the medical building to the blood lab where I was getting work done.

So I go in July 9th for the bike fit with the excersise physiologist and all the strength/longevity testing. My fiance goes in on the 8th for all this as well. Coaching begins immediately after the results of the tests are tabulated/examined.

Anyone out there have any experience being coached/administered to by Testa? (Other than LA, Mapei, FDJ, etc etc etc)

Are you kidding?? NOT! But I'll bet everyone on this board is both envious and interested in your experiences? You could do us all a great service by keeping us up to date on your experiences with Testa's supervision, how his programs differ from other coach's, similarities, etc.

Steve Larsen just started working with Dr. Testa. There's an interview in the June City Sports magazine that talks a little about it. Sounds positive.

Also, a good friend had his knee scoped by Dr. Heiden. Everything went well.

Good luck.
