NEXT STOP: 153 MPH
Denise Mueller, a multi-time national champion being coached by John Howard, is undergoing advanced MAXIMUM OVERLOAD TRAINING as part of her overall training plan for her bicycle land-speed world-record attempt, planned for September on the Bonneville Salt Flats. (The record of 167 mph was set by Howard-trained Dutchman Fred Rompelberg 20 years ago; he beat Howard's record of 152.2 mph, which Denise will try to beat to establish a female record.) Here she is at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday Feb 21, at the Sirens and Titans Fitness gym in West L.A., using one of owner/trainer Jacques DeVore's secret weapons to ramp up her sustainable power: The little-known but brutally effective VersaPulley.
