Jim began racing as a junior and continued racing at an elite level throughout college (both undergraduate and graduate).As a bike racer, he always wanted to know how to get faster. This desire led him to pursue a PhD in physiology from the University of Colorado Boulder. As you might expect, his research focused on cycling. Jim’s academic background has provided him with a wide ranging knowledge base on physiological factors that influence performance such as immunology and sleep physiology.

Jim is a USA Cycling certified coach who brings a unique perspective to coaching. His education has taught him how to analyze the latest research on sports performance while his personal experience has taught him how this research can be implemented into training or racing. While Jim’s passion is certainly time trial racing, he has experience with various other cycling events (cyclocross, stage racing, crits, mountain bike racing, century rides) as well as experience using cycling as a way to improve health.
