Paul Ruggiero

I grew up in a house obsessed with hockey and football in Buffalo, NY and wanted to be an athlete.  But when I was 14 and 6’1 and 150 lbs, I realized contact sports weren’t going to be my future.  When I saw “Breaking Away” and realized that endurance sports would be me hurting myself for as long as I could, I knew I was home.  I’ve been coaching endurance athletes from every walk of life for the past decade.  I thrive on learning, racing and teaching anything related to bikes.  I honed my chops racing road and triathlon.  And now I’m a cyclocross junkie.  I married the favorite person I ever met.  We have a toddler son and are expecting a daughter spring 2014.
