UltraMTB offers off-road endurance mountain bike, ultra endurance, and bikepacking race expertise to help you with the planning, preparation, training, and completion of empowering racing experiences and cycling adventures. UltraMTB also supports a small crew of world-class endurance mountain bike athletes and produces written and photographic media content for cycling and adventure outlets and brands.
We're excited to offer the following coaching services as UltraMTB enters its 5th year in 2019!
Coaching and consultation for all types of mountain bike racing - everything from XC to 100 milers to multi-day events,including on- and off-the-bike preparation, nutrition and fueling, route/race logistics, gear selection, bike setup, race strategy, and special considerations for masters athletes. NOTE: As of late 2018, very limited openings remain for new athletes with goals in 2019.
UltraMTB has helped get riders onto the top step of podiums in everything from grassroots events to the 24 Hour Solo World Championships, as well as podium finishes and records in the Arizona Trail 300, 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, National Ultra Endurance Series 100 milers, XC events, winter ultras, and more! I have also helped riders prepare Tour Divide, Stagecoach 400, Smoke 'n' Fire 400, the Colorado Trail Race, endurance gravel events, and more.
UltraMTB is excited to help you achieve your goals and discover your potential, all while keeping the training and preparation simple, enjoyable, and compatible with all the other elements of your life.
