"Although this is my first year formally being coached by Blueprint Athlete Development, Joel has been a part of my development for the last five-plus years as a role model. While racing World Cup Cross Country the last few years I would help with the Whistler DFX program alongside Joel and this helped to keep my skills sharp as well as building upon other important areas such as coaching and being able to communicate what I am doing.

Now that I have decided to focus my efforts on enduro I think it’s the perfect time for myself and Blueprint Athlete Development to link up formally. Having previously worked together in some form over the last couple of years I’m very excited to see what this next season will bring."

– Rhys Verner, Kona Factory EWS Racer

"After stepping away from DH and into Enduro in 2016 there were some big changes in my training. 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 two rounds of the 2016 EWS and continued into and throughout 2017."

- Remi Gauvin; Rocky Mountain Rally EWS Team
