Want to meet the most experienced, helpful, and friendly coach in the mountain bike industry?
I sat down with Shaums March to discuss what inspires him to keep teaching, his background coaching world champions and Olympians, plus the story of where we raced together at the Red Bull Night Shift (plus a bonus conversation about Red Bull Rampage).
Shaums is the President of the Bike Instructor Certification Program, has coached elite riders, and is widely considered the authority on creating mountain bike instruction curriculum.
Shaums was one of the first 4 athletes to ever be sponsored by Red Bull and stayed with them for 14 years as an elite athlete.
Based out of Bellingham, Washington, Shaums has elevated the entire sport of Mountain Biking and was a pleasure to have on the show.
On this episode, listen in to find out:
Shaums biggest coaching "wins" with athletes like Miranda Miller, Kate Courney, and Danny Hart...
What it's like to stand at the start "gate"...
In another great episode with a pro racer, I'm joined by Dr. Jason Richardson, or "jrich" for short.
Dr. JRich is a World Champion BMX racer, PanAm Gold Medalist representing the USA, and an Olympic Coach/Psychologist. He is a leader who has been featured on outlets such as Inc. Mag, Good Morning San Diego, USA Today, ESPN Radio, and has worked closely with organizations including the NFL Players Association and Lexus.
As well as coaching, he's also had the pleasure of on-air announcing international bike racing events including the Olympics.
Tune in to find out:
- How to continue to progress after 40...
- What jrich believes is the key to achieving balance and control...
- What patterns and decisions you can focus on to get what you really want out of life (all in bike terms, of course)...
Plus much more!
