Sarah Kaufmann   K Cycling Coaching

Sarah has been a professional XC and CX racer since 2008 and working as a coach since 2012. She uses her experience as a racer and combines a holistic, personal approach with science-based design. She works with athletes from all backgrounds and levels of experience, from new riders to pros and juniors to masters racers. She works with XC, endurance XC, ultra-endurance, enduro, road, gravel, touring, and cyclocross athletes. Sarah is a member of the Utah High School League Board of Directors.


Sarah is a USA Cycling Level 2 Certified Coach. She began riding bikes when a torn ACL sidelined her from Nordic ski racing. Initially racing on the road, she then transitioned to MTB for endurance and ultra-endurance racing. Since 2011, she has transitioned again to XC, single-day endurance, and stage racing. Sarah uses her vast racing experience to inform her coaching. She lives in Salt Lake City where the trails are abundant and the roads climb quiet mountain canyons.
