Wow, considering Andy does a few less camps than me each year it is amazing how many glowing emails I get about his coaching! My goal in hiring Andy was to create the best coach in the sport who could duplicate/replace me. I thought by fusing his enthusiasm, incredible riding skills and skills knowledge with the coaching techniques I have learned over the last 20 years he would become a really good coach but I am blown away by emails like this:
I was just now sitting at my computer thinking of emailing you when this email popped up at the inbox. (I had just emailed him the first of many follow up emails to his camp)
Thanks so much for making available such a great bike skills camp. Like I was telling Andy as we were finishing up last Sunday, I did my research and knew you guys had a good course but it really exceeded my expectations. Your course has given me the foundational skills and empowered me to be the best rider I can according to the effort I put into practicing and working on the skills taught. Andy is a great person, instructor and bike handler. Also thanks for sending the good info with this email, I really like the figure 8 drill and plan on making it a staple of my practice time.
Notice the “great person” comment. Charles is at least the third person this year to mention what a great person Andy is. Hearing this really makes me happy as it has been scary to hand my baby over to other coaches. It feels good to know I have such a great coach working for me. It also forces me to step up and continue to improve my coaching as I can’t let Andy beat a coaching, he has already beat me on the race course enough!
Thanks Andy, for you continue to impress me and our students.
