  • One of your's on the big box last weekend. Garrison Minter takes first place in Chainbusters ,Cat 2, 14-19, 3 hour.....International Horse Park, Conyers GA. His lap times would have given him a podium in every category except Cat 1 40-49. Fast and strong on your training program. Thanks!

  • Hey Drew, Great effort today. Looks pretty solid although it felt more up and down during the TT. Lot of stress today at work but it did not seem to have much of an effect. I believe that is a record 20 min TT. Thanks for getting us there. This is a really big milestone for me/us, over 350W for 20 minutes, that's just crazy good. Let me tell you how I really feel. So very excited. This made my day, week, month, year. I can do better!

  • Big thanks to Drew Edsall who was my coach for the past year and got me ready for the Leadville Trail 100. I was ready, I was strong, and I hit my goal. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it.

  • The whole reason I bought this mountain bike training plan was to be competitive in the Tennessee XC State Championship. I had never even raced a Cat 1 race before starting the training program. This past weekend I became the Cat 1 15-29 State Champion.

  • Training with Drew has been the single most beneficial thing for my race career.  I could not have progressed as fast without Drew's expert advice & coaching.

  • With the help of Drew Edsall I have met my goals and finished second overall in the Elite Florida State Championship Series in 2014 and then switched gears in 2015 to endurance racing and won the elite overall title in the Chainbuster Southeastern Endurance Cup 6 hour race Series. There are numerous coaches out there. The reason I chose Drew is because of his organization, engaging/challenging training plans, and most importantly to me, his racing knowledge and expertise.

  • Hi Drew, Just wanted to thank you for your training guide for Peter and I, we were very happy with our results this season (I got 3rd overall and Peter got 5th overall for the Florida State Championship Series) and felt the difference your training plan made in our riding.

Mountain Bike Coach Jerry Dufour

Jerry has over ten years of experience in both cross country mountain biking and cyclocross racing and is currently one of the highest ranked cyclist in the country. This high level of performance has given him the opportunity to travel the world racing for the US National Team at World Cups, World Championships, and more since he was a junior level racer.
 
With experience in many other aspects of cycling, Jerry is the complete athlete/coach package helping riders and racers both physically and mentally to reach their goals. He has coached and mentored many riders to national and regional success from NICA level riders to masters racers looking to be a more confident rider. Jerry enjoys sharing his growing knowledge gained throughout his career to grow a riders ability on and off the bike.
 
As a younger racer Jerry loved to race his bike, and from year to year the interest to progress up to that next level, travel to more races, and everything in between grew with every ride. It wasn't until 2012, when he met Drew Edsall at a skills clinic, that he started to reach those goals almost immediately. With structured workouts and endless communication over the next five years he started to climb through the ranks and eventually was racing at National Championships and then World Championships representing the United States as a Junior.
 
The goal for Jerry is to give the younger generation of riders and racers, especially at the NICA level, the same opportunities and even more to develop as a rider and racer to reach his or her goals with hopes of growing the sport of cycling and giving back to this life long sport that has treated him so well and have a blast doing so!
