I’m ten times the rider I was when I first started with working with Richard. With his help, along with access to the tremendous tool that is Training Peaks, I increased fitness, power, confidence and skills so that I was able to proudly finish my biggest goal, the BC Bike Race in the top five. His experience and expertise in endurance formats informed my training so that I was ready for my “A” event, and also crushed a number of events I never would have imagined completing along the way. I’ve also loved the opportunity to work with him through Ninja Mountain Bike Skills, which gives me the chance to share what I’ve learned the hard way over the past decade of racing, but in teaching, I find I still learn new things as well. Finally, Richard’s emphasis on working with data (HR and power for me) gave me the confidence to feel I had always done all I could, and progress has continued steadily. Thank you Coach Richard!! ~Kristen Gross
