I want to thank you for the tremendous guidance you offered me as I prepared for my three (3) big rides this spring, As you know, I started off the spring with the Hell of Hunterdon, then the NYC Gran Fondo (110 miles and 8,800 ft of climbing) in late May. I just got back from the Ride the Rockies six (6) day event, which covered 442 miles and over 25,000 feet of climbing. Every event, along with your structured training got me more prepared for the next.
I can say without a doubt that your training program over the past 4 months had me extremely prepared. There is no way I could have had the strength or condition to do these events without your coaching. In addition, the advice you gave me regarding rest, nutrition and hydration got me through the 6 consecutive day ride feeling fresh and ready to go every morning.
Thank you so much for your help and I look forward to working with you again!
That warm-up lap with you was a huge help. I watched you over the barriers and I can instantly see where I'm giving up handfuls of time. Seeing the best lines. Huge! Thanks! I knew I wanted to do well but never expected to do this well. My teammate says I have fitness "from another planet". Thanks again! I couldn't have come this far without your insight and guidance
