"After stepping away from DH and into Enduro there have been some big changes in my training for 2016. Joel tailored a program that allowed me to build the all day endurance I needed as well as maintain the strength I had gained from DH training. Clearly we have been on the right track and it showed in my results after the first 2 rounds of the 2016 EWS."
