My coaching philosophy is based on things that work. 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 love working

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