Fit Symposium returns to Interbike

Published May 22, 2017

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Interbike has released the content schedule for its third annual Fit Symposium, which will be held in Las Vegas the day prior to the opening of this year's Interbike Expo.

The 2017 edition of the Fit Symposium will be curated in cooperation with Medicine of Cycling. The symposium is designed to bring together North America's bike fit technicians from the IBD channel for a dynamic interactive symposium featuring some of the top names in bike fit. Medicine of Cycling is an academic symposium led by Curtis Cramblett, PT.

"This will be the third annual Fit Symposium at Interbike and we're glad to be working once again with Medicine of Cycling, and bringing some new sessions for the fit community," said Pat Hus, the vice president of Interbike. "Of particular interest is a session that Curtis developed which mimics the format of our most popular session at the 2017 IBD Summit. Fit technicians will be able to submit their favorite accommodation to Medicine of Cycling in advance of the show, with 6-8 being chosen to present those ideas at the Fit Symposium. The winning idea, chosen by their peers immediately after the session, will win some great prizes."

The 2017 Fit Symposium agenda incorporates general sessions for all levels and separate breakout sessions for beginner and advanced fit technicians.

There are a limited number of seats available to attend the free symposium, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on Tuesday, Sept. 19, from 12:00 p.m.-5:45p.m.
