Hi Guys and Gals,

Do you want to really improve you riding skills? If so check out one of my skills camps here in Fruita or coming to a town near you (Austin, TX, Boulder City, NV, Birmingham, AL, Tucson, AZ, your town).

Who am I and why do I guarantee improvement? My name is Gene Hamilton and here is a short bio:

I have been coaching mountain bikers for 10 years (and snowboarders for 5 years before that) and hold a USA cycling expert license. Clients have included; Marla Streb, Lisa Myklak, 2002 Collegiate National Champion and 2004 National Championships 7th place pro DH finisher, Jane Finsterwald, 2004 45-49 Expert XC National Champion, Walker Savidge, 2004 Junior expert XC National Champion, Chloe Forsman, 2004 Junior Expert XC National Champion, Kayla Martin, 2004 National Championships 2nd place Junior Expert XC and many aspiring riders and racers of all ages and abilities.

I have been racing in the pro class for ten years and I am the 2002 UCI World Masters Championships Silver Medalist and 1999 UCI World Masters Championships Bronze Medalist.


Here is what some of my clients are saying about my coaching:

"I've worked on and off with Gene my entire career. In fact, it was partly
on his urging, ten years ago, that I commit to racing pro full-time and
quit my silly "real job" thing. After Gene started coaching, he helped me
at some of the Nationals. Together we worked on going over lines, race strategy,
and especially my mental game. Gene's got unbelievable energy and enthusiasm
for the sport of mountain biking, unmatched by anyone I know.

As a pro rider himself he understands racing and training in this sport,
which is very rare. Many riders don't understand the importance of having
a coach like Gene. But when they do, they will finally be able to reach
their potential. This is the edge to get them out of their plateau and go
much faster..."

Gene,
Incredible! It's like night and day. I took my first ride after your clinic,
it's like taking your favorite challenging singletrack and it becomes a
four lane highway; you see your favorite trail in a whole new light. Gene,
I'm totally serious. I went out this morning, my purpose being to work on
.... (one of the key things I teach). I was amazed at how it helped me in
my climbing. I make it up stuff that I know I would have walked up before
talking the clinic.

-Heather Anderson, happy bike rider
