Who we are

Just like what’s said in the About and Welcome page, we are Kean and Anna. Of course, we’d like to keep a lot of details under wraps since we’re dealing with a presumably sensitive site. We love sports, and we love athletes. We love working with them. We have joined several teams as sports physiologists and physical therapists. We have majors in physical therapy and sports physiology and nutrition. Our studies major in cycling, both road and track cycling although we fell in love with track cycling the moment we laid our eyes on it during our time in school.

Kean did studies on cyclists thigh muscle recruitment long ago and used that to pursue postgraduate studies on sports physiology and track cycling. Anna meanwhile did a study on endurance and performance patterns between novice and elite cyclists and used this to pursue postgraduate studies on sports physiology and endurance sports. We’re not a couple as some would like to believe. We’re both straight and have reasonably happy relationships. Kean was born on 1983 while Anna on 1984. We were both born on Colorado, USA but have since then moved from one state to another.

Upon graduation we started looking for work and in 2006 this good friend of ours offered us work in the Australian National Track Cycling Team. There we met a lot of track cyclists and traveled with them throughout the world where we met more track cyclists. We fell in love with the sport even more. Thereafter in 2008 this friend of ours decided to jump ship to the New Zealand Track Cycling Team and so we followed and there met even more friends and track cyclists. From there we went on freelance jobs for different teams and had experiences with different sports including road cycling, basketball, football, and tennis. Earlier this year, we decided to pursue post graduate studies. Whether we can return to the velodrome soon remains to be seen, but we still remain active in following up track cycling events everywhere.

Anna is shy of posting her picture here and so am I but I’m willing to share this back view of mine. It’s an odd thing for us to say, but we RARELY wear lycra unless needed such as during cycling events. We don’t mean to offend lycra fetishists by this but we prefer lycra to be worn properly as needed. Well, that’s our belief but we still love lycra either way. It’s unbelievably comfortable and we love the snug fit especially in the chest, and ehem crotch and thigh area.  So here’s that back view.

Oh and since we’re already here, let me post this other photo of another sexy back!!!

Some day I’ll force Anna to post her own sexy back.

    Hi there Kean or Anna,

    I’m a keen reader of your blog and especially love the photos! I was hoping we could help each other with a link? I run the very popular Spandex Party site and can feature your blog in the ‘hot blogs’ section where my members would love to find out about it, i’m sure.
    If you think it’s OK, you could link to my site on your Links page?

    Cheers! And thanks for all your work.

    Hi Anna and Kean –

    I’ve become a bit of an overnight fan of your website. I found it while searching for inspiration for cycling team kit but I’ve been through your other articles and what I’ve read so far has been scientific, entertaining and honest – excellent work. Finding your website through your Skinsuits by Design section I thought your assessment of cyclists’ work clothes was particularly candid and interesting – certainly worth considering for future designs!

    I’d be happy to trade links with you if you like – our website is free to register and join in or there’s a guestbook if you’re just passing through. I guess you can’t reply to all comments but I’d be really keen and interested to hear from either/both of you about aspects of cycling training given you obvious passion for the sport.

    Hope all is well.

      We’re glad that you found the blog insightful and entertaining. We’ve visited tons of cycling forums for the past few years and learned a lot from browsing through different topics, in fact some of the topics here were inspired by forum posts and topics. Thank you!

    Hi Anna and Kean,

    I live in Florida and am very interested in getting into track cycling. Greatly because of the athletic endurance needed for such a sport and the resulting physical transformation needed to then perform the task. A bonus is to then show off your hard work in skill and appearance in a skin suit. Sorry to get side tracked. I am a current recreational road cyclist, I taught myself by doing. If possible, can you give any advise to how I can go about educating myself physically and mentally in the area of track cycling? I have done a lot of research and found that South Florida is not the place to be to pursue the sport. But I am determined to try.
    Much appreciated,
    Bronte

    So excited to find your blog! Track cycling is amazing and deserves so much more attention than it gets. I’ve been wishing and hoping for a blog or magazine…ANYTHING that focuses on track cycling rather than squeezing in one article about track while focusing on the other disciplines. Thanks so much for doing this, it’s awesome!
