I’ve been a full-time professional coach since 1999, and an endurance athlete for much longer. I have a BS in Exercise Physiology from Wake Forest, and I was an elite amateur bike racer in the late 1990s. In addition to coaching I’ve co-authored seven books on training and sports nutrition, including “The Time-Crunched Cyclist”, and produced more than 20 full-length indoor cycling videos. Currently my own training focuses on being fit for training camps and ultra-distance cycling events like the Dirty Kanza 200 and the Leadville 100 mountain bike race. And at home I’m happiest playing with my two young boys, preparing fresh vegetarian and vegan meals with my wife, and tinkering in the garage.
