“Russ is positive, no-nonsense kind of coach. Loved his constructive and continuous feedback of both weaknesses and strengths. He really helped me to focus on the fundamentals and challenges of cyclocross— different types of cornering, race strategy, etc.—which helped me think about and attack each course with confidence.” 

Andrew Howe – Soft like Kitten, Cat 3 Cross Racer

“After 3 seasons of Cyclocross racing I went to Russell to address a glaring weakness, bike handling. I always had good speed but struggled with simple cornering and off-cambers. He quickly made some bike fit adjustments which improved my body position. After a few drills and some specific instruction I was  able to correctly learn some fundamentals of off-road handling.  The results were almost immediate. I’ve even gone on to snag a few podium spots! Wish I had started working with Russell earlier!”

Pedro DeGuzman – Alki Velo, Cat 1/2 Master’s Cross Racer 

“After taking more than 10 years off of racing, Russell helped me developed a plan around my work and racing goals that allowed me to get back to competitive levels in the local masters 1,2 categories.  He pushed me to work on balance across mind and body to achieve these goals and continue racing. “
