Bio

About me:

  • Name & age: Mathias Knudsen, 24.
  • For the last 3 years I have studied Sport Science at Aarhus University. This summer I finished my bachelor and are currently studying the master of Sport Science.
  • Compete at national level in mountain bike.
  • I have a love for long endurance events/rides (mountainbike marathons, long gravel events, long endurance rides).. And yet loves short hard criterium races or cross country events.
  • Highly interested in the physiology of the human, and how different kinds of training elicit different adaptations in the human body.

Coaching philosophy:

  • A good athlete-coach relationsship, is the key for achieving succes. Therefor mutual respect as well as open and honest conversations are a minimum requirement for a succesfull relationsship!
  • More work are not always the right answer! Train smarter to get better!
  • Science is important, but science by it self cannot create a champion, new personal bests or accomplish goals. Coaching is not all about understanding the science, it is just as much understanding the athlete and his/hers personality, needs and "drive".
  • Varying training and periodization keeps motivation high and reduce the chance of stagnation.

Academic qualifications:

  • Sport Science (bachelor degree) from Aarhus University (2017-2020)
  • Currently studying the master of Sport Science (Aarhus University) (2020-)
