SH riding

Shawn Heidgen has been involved in cycling since 1992 in many different aspects. Some of these include: competing at national and international levels, coaching cyclists of all abilities, organizing training camps worldwide, owning an indoor cycling specific training center, developing womens cycling garments, race promoting, and data/power file analyst. In 1998 she sustained  what should have been career-ending hip fracture that required her to be enrolled for a month at the Mayo Clinic Chronic Pain inpatient program. Despite the odds, she eventually returned to cycling and racing, focusing on the National Race Calendar and finishing 2 Giros D’Italia Femminile. It was Chronic Pain that prevented her from being able to put in the hours of training that most of her competitors were doing but this led her to training with power and data analysis to create successful workouts and training schedules that enabled her to compete at the highest level despite limited training time.

 

In addition to being an ALP Cycles coach, Shawn works as an Education Specialist at TrainingPeaks and provides in depth data analysis for the Tour de France, USAPC, and other races.
