The camp itself was broken down into three days, with the first day dedicated to testing various fabrics on a custom stationary form. That effort was handled by Pearl's advanced development director Ted Barber.
On the second day it was time for the athletes to spend time in the tunnel with Mat Steinmetz from Retul, Ted Barber and Tim DeBoom. Surprisingly, none of these athletes had been to a wind tunnel before, but with the help of good bike fitting some of them had already a pretty decent position. Sponsor Shimano was also on hand to swap out parts as needed.
The final day was dedicated to a group ride and product meetings.
Winning 70.3 Panama allowed Canadian Pro Angela Naeth to start the 2012 season with a bang. Naeth then went straight to the wind tunnel with Pearl Izumi and now is getting ready for the Abu Dhabi Triathlon. 2.21.12
