Jerry’s Adventure at the 12 Hours of Sebring

Jerry’s Adventure at the 12 Hours of Sebring

Jerry flanked by Jeroen and Sebastiaan Bleekemolen. Working with world-class athletes of this caliber before and during an event requires appropriate techniques and attention to the details.

Ben Keating visited Castle Hill Cycles in late December and again in early January for comprehensive bike fittings on his Cervelo RCA and R5 road machines. He took up road cycling in 2014 to boost stamina during IMSA auto racing endurance events in the U.S. and Canada. Keating was so impressed with the cutting edge and holistic approach to bike fitting and movement assessment, he asked Jerry to accompany the team to the 2015, 24 Hours of Daytona to work in tandem with Belgian physiotherapist, Jos Sneyers. The goal was to find ways to help team members prepare for and recover between driving stints. Things went well and the #93 Dodge Viper took first place in Daytona.
The grey foam roller helps to open Ben Keating’s chest/shoulders while the vibrating red roller relaxes the glutes and Sacro-Iliac area after 90 minutes of intense racing.  All the while, Jerry is releasing trigger points along the sternum, collarbones and shoulders.  These techniques along with others expedite recovery and aid in preparation for the next driving stint.

Coming off the massive win in Daytona, the 33 and 93 Dodge Viper SRT GTR-3’s rolled into the 63rd Annual 12 Hours of Sebring at the Sebring International Raceway March 18 – 21, 2015. Like Daytona, this event draws teams/drivers from around the world. The field included machines from Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Honda, Mazda and Porsche. Keating invited Jerry to the Sebring event to apply his unique structural and functional methods again. The event was a dramatic nail-biter with Jeroen Bleekemolen piloting the 33 car almost pulling off the win and Marc Goosens piloting the 93 car to 4th place. All said and done at Sebring, the TI Automotive/ Viper Exchange.com team leads the Tequila Patrón Endurance Cup Standings. Details on the Sebring event can be seen here.

Matt Sheffield affixes Jerry’s powerful magnet to the #33 safety net. A steel washer affixed to the safety harness allows drivers to toss the belt aside quickly to land in a specific position for quick retrieval.
