Looking for Coach in NYC

trackstar's track racing team is looking for a coach in the NYC area. we are currently putting together proposals for sponsors, and we need to start working with a coach soon both to facilitate that process and to get ready for the season.

we are looking for someone to help us train for the season, to give us nutritional advice, and to help us with both training and tactics on the track.

since the team page is currently under reconstruction on the shop's website, i'll tell you a bit about us:

there are five men and one woman on the team. we all have about a season's worth of experience at kissena. we started as group b last year, and two of us moved up to group a. our woman rider last year won the best female rider category at kissena, and one of our men took the best male rider in group b.

most of us ride as messengers during the week and get in a little extra training on the weekends. we also race in alleycats. however, we are not of a uniform fitness level and some of us have more training time available than the others.

if anyone knows of a suitable coach, let us know. we are fun people to work with.

This may or may not be your thing if you're looking for facetime, but check it out anyhoo. I know some people who have had some success training with them in other cycling disciplines. ...

right now, I could give training at kissena, based upon that level, we are looking for something more intense.

edit.
that sounds harsh.

we are just looking for further training than what we've gotten from them already.
