I was introduced to mountain biking at an early age and it didn’t take long before I fell in love with the sport and started racing. Throughout my teen years, I dabbled in mountain bike, road and cyclocross racing as well as cross-country running in high school. I became interested in the science of training for endurance sports around this time which brought me to Brevard College in western North Carolina. During my time at college, I raced for the cycling team and helped Brevard secure two of their many collegiate national championship mountain bike titles. In the spring of 2017 I graduated with a B.S. in exercise science and a minor physics and psychology.
Right now my primary focus is marathon mountain bike racing. In 2016 I self-coached myself to become the youngest rider to win the National Ultra Endurance Series at 21 years old and I hope to be able to continue my success in this discipline. I’m confident that over a decade of experience in training and racing and my education in exercise physiology along with the support of CTS has prepared me to lead others to achieve their athletic goals.
As a CTS coach, my goal is to give the same level of care to my athletes’ training plans that I give to my own. This means that a great deal of thought and purpose goes into every workout prescribed and that I ensure that the plan in not only effective but fits with the athlete’s family, work, and other life obligations. Beyond writing training plans and analyzing training and racing data my services include bike fits, body composition assessment, nutrition advice, private camps, skills coaching, mountain bike guiding and more.
Mountain biking, in particular longer endurance events, but I also have knowledge and experience in road, cyclocross, and gravity mountain bike disciplines as well as endurance running.« Back to all coaches
