Drop your drag this winter with some wind tunnel testing

Final wind tunnel test slot up for grabs, but you'll need to get up early...

When it comes to getting that aero to the max position on a bike the pros know the value of time spent in the wind tunnel, if you think time in the tunnel could lower your PB coach Joe Beer is holding some wind tunnel sessions later this month. You will have to be quick if you want to be quicker Joe Beer has just one remaining 2-hour slot in his next wind tunnel session at the Brawn GP wind tunnel (featured in 220 and Triathlete Europe magazines) at 0800h-1000h on Friday November 29th 2009.

The 2-hour personal test sessions is £699. They are presently advertised at £799

JBST (that's Joe Beer Smart Training) will have two staff at the session and Simon Smart of Drag2Zero will be conducting each 2hr in-the-tunnel testing session with a technician to help him.

This final slot will be first come first serve basis. And quite a few people are thinking about it (Simon Edney from North Devon Wheelers just booked at 14:10 Friday so there is just the 0800h slot left).

So, if you want to know if you could be riding a faster with a new set of Zipp wheels or that your helmet is a lot slower than a Uvex FP2 get in contact with Joe through the contact page at JBST.com.
