English Endurance Cycling Coach About Nate

After graduating from UC Berkeley in 2007, Nate got into road bike racing while working at local bike shops and honing his expertise in sports physiology and nutrition through continued study, experience, and self-experimentation. His broad range of personal experience and continued academic interest in sports physiology gives him a potent combination of knowledge and passion that provide the foundation for his coaching.

A competitive runner in high school and a sports and performance physiology junkie ever since, Nate has over 15 years of endurance sports experience. He didn’t engage in competitive cycling until after graduating from college, but within a year of joining the local peloton, Nate had earned his Cat. 1 upgrade and was competing against the best elite riders in the area. While Nate has the natural ability and an athletic background that allow him to excel in almost any physically demanding endurance sport, he credits his drive to work hard and train smart for his continued development as an elite cyclist. During the 2012 and 2013 racing seasons, Nate raced professionally for the 5 Hour Energy p/b Kenda pro cycling team, racking up wins and top finishes at stage races, time trials, hill-climbs and the US Pro National Championships, all while working full-time when at home and serving as a coach to other athletes. Nate has experience training his heart out on local roads, racing the US Pro TT Championships into 5th place, winning the Joe Martin Stage 1 uphill TT, riding the break on the Queen stage of the Amgen Tour of California and into the top 15 overall, while also working hard to help his coaching clients get their Cat 3 or Cat 2 upgrades, their local crit wins, fitting their TT bike, and working with a busy schedule to be able to race hard and ride strong at the weekend crits. No matter the sphere, Nate has a passion for trying to optimize an athlete’s approach to their sport, their health, and their performance.
