"The finish time was 1:02:50, just short of 5 min faster than in 2014(!)
Just wanted to drop you a thank you note for the interval program for Nibberittet!
I finished the race in 2nd place this weekend.
The reason for not actually winning was that I did not have a sprint. This is something that I might have achieved if I had followed the final intervals in the program - however did not want to miss the long FTP efforts in the Norwegian mountains... :-)"
"Within the first 3 months, I saw a solid 13% increase in my FTP but I think the real improvements came over the following year, where I was molded into a better all around cyclist. Like most people life always gets in the way, and Damian consistently did his utmost to adapt the training based on my current state.
I thought I already knew a lot about cycling and training and just needed some guidance, structure and assurance to the hours I had available to train.
Damian showed me the benefit of what guidance from an experienced coach could do. Putting a plan together for each season built me up at just the right times to exceed my expectations for my most important events. He also showed me just how hard I could push myself through the various unique interval sessions in his arsenal.
Always providing information and specific details about prescribed sessions really adds context and gave me faith knowing I was making the most of my training time."
"I have learned a lot about how I can work on my goal to be a better cyclist and have much better confidence around my training.
Hiring a coach when you're in you early 40’s and have small children and demanding job might seem like a stupid thing to do, and even more if you just are an average rider…
From day one I have had the feeling that I had Damian by my side supporting and cheering: I have been amazed how quick he can absorb information about my life even if he is on the other side of the world and adjust training and load according.
Damian has been professional from day one and I can highly recommend him to anyone young or old who wants to take his or her cycling to a new level."

"In six months I have gone from NRS pack fodder to a serious contender in the series.
Whilst last year I hoped to make time cut on each stage, I know think about how I can win each stage. The meticulous and methodical approach that Damian takes allows me to train smarter rather than longer and has led to leaps in performance I had never experienced before.
Damian developed a training plan to meet my specific goals. I'm looking forward to what the next six months will hold with Semi-Pro Cycling."
