I have been a Level 2 USAC Coach for over 7 years, and I coach a broad range of individuals, from Road to MTB toCross to Endurance racing. I generally coach no more than 7 or 8 athletes at a time, which allows me to communicate and develop a relationship with each athlete.
Cycling began for me in University (1990) when I bought a bike to commute from home to classes. I soon fell in love with MTB, and I raced MTB for half a dozen years, competing as an Expert. It was fun, but a recent trip to France and seeing the Tour de France (1995) first hand had me rethinking what else there was to do on a bike. So I bought a steel frame Eddy Merckx and started racing the road. After a few years racing and upgrading, I moved on -- going on extended bike tours, lasting from several months to several weeks. These were occasionally alone and sometimes with friends, but always self-supported,
Eventually, I met my wife to be, and she brought me back to the racing fold. To help her succeed, I referenced back to my own training years ago, and started to study, take classes, and earn certifications for coaching. I felt an obligation to make sure that she had the best chance to succeed.
She did very well and within a year and a half she was a Cat. 1 Roadie. Eventually she would race the NRC circuit and ride several seasons with the Canadian Development team, including 2 stints racing in Europe.
