“Chad, I totally forgot to write to you about my experience at the Livestrong Challenge in Philly. I was on the site reading others testimonials and realized that this needed to be up there as a true testament to how much your coaching makes a difference. In 2007 I road the same route, a tough hilly 70 mile loop in the backwoods of suburb PA, I remember to this day my time of 5:35 minutes. This spring after almost a 12 month hiatus from riding, I decided to get back on the bike. I think I road the new bike twice before coming to you for a fit, and felt like it was time I take my riding to the next level, so I signed up for your coaching. About two months into the coaching I knew I was stronger than I had ever been, and a buddy of mine from back home asked me to come home and ride the Livestrong again. With my newfound confidence on the bike and strength I set out that day to try and “better” my 2007 effort, “better” was an understatement what I did that day. I finished the ride in just over 4 hours on a solo effort, and they extended the ride by 5 miles due to road construction. Forget the fact the whole ride was in one of those downpours that you wouldn’t want to run to the car to grab something and back kind of downpours. I was passing people asking them how their day was going and found out I was passing people who were doing the 40 mile loop that had only started 10 minutes later. You’re coaching and guidance on and off the bike on how to be a better rider really made that day one of the most memorable, and strongest rides I’ve ever had. I’m really excited to continue my coaching come the spring of 2011 and maybe even test myself in a race or two!” –Mike Mancuso – Cyclist
