What sets PEAK MTB apart & our story?
Experience, Expertise, Connections, Holistic Approach. I have connections to both colleges and universities, being previous Collegiate & High School Cycling Director at USA Cycling , serving as Head Coach and Manager for the Rocky Mtn USA Cycling Talent ID/Athlete Development camps, and collaborating directly with many of the nationally recognized U23 teams and their Team Directors. Whether you’re seeking a U23 referral or a college program, those connections become possible and clear. We’re conditioning you to leave a better athlete and person that can tackle challenges in the real-world through sport development.
Coaches and Directors of this team have actually worked & raced professionally extensively at this level. I’ve both raced at the Varsity college level as a scholarship Varsity rider for both XC and Gravity disciplines at Lindsey Wilson College as well as co-founded a Collegiate Club that earned a collegiate national title at Murray State. I’ve worked as an Admissions counselor at Lindsey Wilson College as well gaining necessary experience for the student-athlete process. I have coached and directed at the international level obtaining both an individual and team General Classification yellow jersey at UCI stage race, coached hands on national champions in both endurance and gravity events and have had Junior and u23 athletes podium at nationals from a previous Junior program.
