Empowering Excellence in Athletes

At the heart of my coaching philosophy lies an unwavering commitment to athlete excellence. My passion for cycling and dedication to athlete success fuel my approach, ensuring that every rider I work with is positioned to perform at their absolute best.

As a current coach with UAE Team Emirates, the prestigious UCI World Number 1 team, I bring a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success to the forefront of professional cycling. My previous role as Head Coach of the World Tour team Katusha Alpecin, along with personal coaching engagements for renowned riders such as Caleb Ewan, Marcel Kittel, Mat Hayman, and Michael Valgren, underscores my capability to apply my coaching principles at the pinnacle of competitive cycling.

With over two decades of coaching experience, I have achieved landmark victories, including Paris-Roubaix 2016, numerous Grand Tour stage wins, and consistent podium finishes at World Tour Classics. These accomplishments are a testament to my deep understanding of the meticulous planning, advanced science, and tailored training regimens required to triumph in the sport’s most challenging races.

I am at the vanguard of leveraging cutting-edge technology and science-based training methodologies to enhance performance. My areas of expertise include:

Implementing altitude and heat training protocols
Mastery in conducting meaningful and reliable performance testing.
Pioneering the use of indoor training platforms, setting new standards in professional cycling for the benefits of controlled, data-driven training environments.
Leading the charge in implementing AI analysis of athlete data, revolutionizing the way training prescriptions are devised to optimize performance outcomes.

An early adopter of power meters since 1996, my fascination with technology drives me to explore and integrate the latest advancements in sports science for the benefit of our athletes. My keen interest in exercise physiology ensures that I remain abreast of the most recent scientific research, a knowledge base that I continually share with my athletes to foster their growth.

More than anything, I cherish the journey I share with each athlete. Guiding them to unlock their full potential and achieve their dreams is not just my profession—it’s my passion.
