What People Say

“Working with AJ over the past year has been an phenominal experience! Not only has he helped me reach my cycling goals, but he also helped me recover from an injury that probably would have ended my racing career had I not been coaching with him. Overall I would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to be serious about racing, or even just wants to get more fit!”

— David Bennet

  • If You’re Going to Crash…

    In this weeks Wednesday Night World Championships a few hitters showed up. Truman, John, Cameron, Carter, you get the idea. The little race at Sundance gets pretty fired up on nights like these. I had a bit of an interesting start. At 5:40 pm I woke up. I’m still not sure how on earth I… Read more

  • The first 5

    I raced last night. I felt pretty good and was able to find a good groove. I also remembered something, something that helps me race well. It’s the first 5. 5 minutes of whole shot. After the first five minutes I settle into my race pace. This initial 5 minute effort separates the groups, and… Read more

  • From Tears to Smiles

    I took my 9 year old little brother mountain biking today. He’s ridden several times and has pretty decent confidence. He’s also participated in my mountain bike kids camp and so he has a good grasp on the fundamental skills. It was interesting to watch him ride. Comfortable on somethings that surprised me, scared of… Read more
