Completed his longest event ever! (2015) High Cascades 100 100 miles, 10,600' of climbing on 80% single track. Never in my wildest imagination did I envision myself competing in a 100 mile mountain bike endurance race, but with Richard’s Coaching, my dream became a reality! After establishing my baselines, (current fitness level and experience), Richard developed a personalized program which worked for my situation, inclusive of nutrition planning and weekly schedules. His use of Training Peaks, which is a program that captures ride data from Garmin and nutrition information from My Fitness Pal, Richard was able to monitor and analyze with great detail my activity. With this up to date information, Richard adjusted my riding frequency levels and intensity to match the kind of week I was having. With less than six months of training, Richard provided me with the tools, confidence and encouragement to not only finish the High Cascade 100 in Bend Oregon, but to do so feeling strong, (the last 20 miles were my best). Can’t even imagine accomplishing this feat without Coach Richard guidance. ~Eric Knowles
