I first met Colby as a junior, and he has been more or less kicking my ass (either virtually or literally) ever since. He has been an integral part of my development as an athlete, helping me improve not only physiologically, but also refining my mental and holistic approach to the sport. Once at dinner, Colby and I were asked by a stranger what we were training for. Colby’s instant reply was “the Olympics,” and after the stranger’s brief pause of surprise, he asked how long Colby had been training for them. “Since I was 16,” was Colby’s response. That is the best evidence I can give for Colby’s quality as a coach; cycling is not a mere sport to him, it is an art and a way of life that he has been practicing most of his life. He understands my passions and motivations because his are the same. Colby is one of the most crucial members of my support team and deserves much more credit for my success than a mere paragraph can provide.
