I am a PhD researcher and Assistant Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Science at Massey University in NZ. My research focus is on MTB, and I draw from my many years of experience of racing mountain bikes at the elite level in the US.
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 elite US Super D titles twice, the elite NZ DH National series, a NUET 100-mile win and a Single Speed XC US national championship, to name a few. Stand-out current athletes include Seamus Powell, Jeff Lenosky and Lisa Horlor. 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. My research topic is based around pacing, especially on downhills; I like consulting on the topic.
