Caleb Ewan's Sprint Position - Revealed through Kinesiology

About

Vincent Vergara


In 2011, I earned my degree in Kinesiology at Indiana University Bloomington.  I took a focused interest on motor pattern development for sport performance, general fitness and rehabilitative applications.  For 10+ years, I studied and applied exercise-related research to my own training with the intent to explore my own limitations.  I first discovered that my body was capable of reaching within a minute of the Olympic qualifying time for the 5000m distance.  I rehabilitated and prevented many musculoskeletal injuries through carefully crafted training plans to achieve this, but later decided to refocus my goals after my knee started to show signs of joint degredation, especially since surgery was not on the budget as a college student!  During this time, I was an active member of the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) and enjoyed endurance sports, so I decided that cycling was a natural progression from running.  I took up competitive cycling and raced criteriums for several years, and was ranked top 3 nationally by USA Cycling for Category 3 road racing.  Now, due to COVID-19, my story temporarily ends here, but I hope to continue racing competitively to see how far I can go!
