I coach all levels of riders. I have been bike racing since 1994. Criteriums and road racing are my specialty. I am skilled at helping an athlete get the most from their schedule, and their body as they go after their goals. Another specialty I have is that I can help a team of individuals refine their skillset enough to pull off effective racing strategies together in races. I am a 3 x UCI Master's Track Worlds Silver Medalist (2K IP in 2015, 2K IP and Points Race 2016, 45-49 age group).
I am a USA Cycling Certified Level 1 Coach. I have been coaching cycling since 2005, and coaching athletics since 1991, from rowing to swimming and currently road cycling. I have Team Building experience as well. I enjoy building teams and further helping them build themselves in order to take themselves to new levels. I value developing riders so that they can share their learning with their up and coming teammates. I have a BA in Psychology, a BS in Kinesiology, and a double teaching certificate in Physical Education and Adapted Physical Education. I use INSCYD Testing to help athletes progress, and fuel efficiently. I helped the USA Cycling Beginning Racer Program come to fruition. I help Co-Direct the Northern California Early Bird Racing series from 2009-present with an amazing team of coaches. I get the most out of helping athletes reach for and refine strengths that they didn't even know they had. I offer free sample 30 min coaching sessions, and can be reached at: 707-318-8914. I look forward to hearing about your goals. ~Laurel

The main thing I ask from a potential client or group of clients is that they be willing to learn and grow as a person alongside of being an athlete.
