Dr Matt Miller   MTB PhD

I specialize in MTB performance and support rad athletes globally. I have a PhD in Sport Science and have raced in every discipline including the EWS and UCI Elite XC since 2003. In early 2019 I left my university role to focus on coaching full time.


My coaching philosophy is based on things that work; I don't add in any fluff. Quality, consistency and fun are the three main things we aim for. Our results show that the ideas work- my mountain bike athletes have won the elite US Enduro National Championship twice, the elite NZ DH National series, Category 1 XC National Championships, a NUET 100-mile win and have represented multiple countries in the World Championships in DH and XC. I seem to have more and more gravity-oriented athletes as enduro rises in popularity, but still love working with XC riders and definitely love both time-crunched and professional riders.

In addition to coaching, I really enjoy consulting. I really think consultation is super useful and under-utilized!
